Hmm, this is a tricky one – at least for now, as I'm so focused on getting my business off the ground + soaring. But here's the thing: I have a lot of fun deploying my business plan, it gives me a lot of intellectual pleasure. But I must admit – I'm starting to feel dry of regular ol' fun. You know, the one where we become vulnerable, we experience awe + surprise, where we forget about work for a spell?
Oh, how do I miss this! Responsibilities pile up high like the sky & I choose them over a warm bath soak, a remorseless weekend getaway, or even as basic as eating lunch! Argh, I know! I'm the one doing the choosing, the one talking back to my judgement.. I can't just complain freely like this, right?
Well, here's the thing: I'm scared to open the door to Fun & Pleasure. What if I become a lazy fool & miserable? The shame that will ensue.. will actually only be mine to choose. I could totally change the ending & decide instead that I embrace my new found journey, that I finally learn to accept + appreciate the support of my family & friends, that maybe I become a genius in an unexpected domain. Or maybe, that it gives me the needed respite to continue on, stronger & more focused than ever!
Who's to know where Life will lead us? But one thing I do know, is that Life is much greater than us, so I prefer following her lead than fighting it.
How do you feel about fun + pleasure in your daily life? Is this true? :)
