Are you too busy in doing things that you should do or must do, that you are ignoring things that gives your pleasure? Let’s talk about it.
Things that I must do right now
Have I mentioned that I am currently studying to get my Grade 12 equivalency. Purchased this book that looks like it’s 6 inches deep, no word of a lie. But to be fair only half of this book is study material. So here is this huge book that needs to be studied in order to pass this test. Let me backtrack a bit. Not having a Grade 12 has really been a hindrance for me. Can’t even be a Garbage man without a Grade 12. Currently working part time and I am finding very difficult getting work because of my lack of a High School Diploma. I guess employers when looking over applicants have to start somewhere when looking at qualifications and that’s where they start. No Diploma, no thanks. But I digress.
What gives me pleasure
As I’m sipping on my coffee I have decided to take a break from studying. I am looking out at my backyard, I am noticing the sun just beading down on my patio furniture and bbq. Not a cloud in the sky. So I decided to jump on my 2008 Sportster (Harley Davidson motorcycle) and let the wind blow through my hair for a while. Or shall I say blow through my scalp, oh well.
The Feelings of doing something you love
I just cant describe the feeling of being on a motorcycle. The freedom, it’s pure freedom. It’s also accomplishment, pleasure, powerful and I feel so alive. My mind goes quiet…and I become one with nature and the bike.
Now, this is what Health Practitioners will tell you. Doing something that gives you pleasure or joy is the healthiest thing for you. Riding my Harley or spending time with my daughter are just two of the things that does it for me.
So what gives you pleasure?
So what gives you pleasure? Motorcycling, heading off to the gym. vacations, hanging out with buddies, hobbies maybe. Whatever, just do it. Keep those Serotonins flowing. Stay tuned for next blog post.
