I have been reading about and thinking about pleasure lately. God has given us so much to enjoy, yet we’ve been programmed to think that pleasure is bad. I think we have got it backwards. I would think it is worse to ignore all the good things we have been given.
I want to feel and enjoy swimming in refreshing water. I want to delight in a red, ripe strawberry. I want to become totally engrossed in a novel. I want to lie in my hammock looking at the clouds. I want to enjoy the hugs of my kids.
Think how much happier we would all be if we stopped working for a bit, turned off the computer and TV and experienced pleasure in the world around us and with each other.
“I let myself enjoy life’s pleasures. I leave no delight undetected.” – Affirmation by Victoria Moran
