My word of the week pleasure ..
The Dali Lama says, trying to find happiness through sensory gratification is like trying to quench your thirst with salt water.
In the pursuit of Joy and Happiness I find I had renounced pleasure, living in a shop till you drop society, finding pleasure on the the surface. My pleasure was found through things. You know cars, dining out, drinking, partying, external pleasure.
I think the universe is helping us find that connection with social distancing. Let’s face it, we’ve all been too busy to find anything of meaning. Since we been forced to disconnect and really sit with ourselves, aren’t you feeling like something is missing.
Since losing my mother I just haven’t been able to get back to my happy place. I’ve slowly pulled back and slipped away and disconnected from everything that made me happy, feel that deep sense of pleasure. Now we all sit in that space I’ve been in for over a year. That space where a piece of my heart ❤️ has literally been ripped out. That space where your heart just aches. That space where whenever you have a happy thought, and feel back to normal, the person you would share it with is gone and bam 💥 the pain is back.
We are all sitting in the space I’ve been for over a year. That space where you realize all the things you’ve taken for granted, and realized all those material things we thought were important just aren’t.
I want to say, the most important things in life aren’t things. If your lucky enough to still have those people in your life, whomever they are, when this is over make them your priority in life. You know how we have our haircuts scheduled every 6 weeks, nails every two weeks, Botox every 2 months, workouts 3 x’s a week. Let’s incorporate some people time in there regularly. Schedule hug em and love em time consistently and don’t stop. Because one day you’ll have no choice In the matter
Joy 😊 compassion 🤗 and generosity 😍 these are the real pleasures in life.
If your gonna go out and spread anything, let this be it!! Let’s infect society with these pleasures. I’m finding my pleasures, I hope you do.
Love Fit Roni ❤️
