What Is Life - But To Enjoy?
I have decided...
Not to believe any negative self talk anymore. I also don't believe in guilt, or anxiety, or depression. What is there to feel guilty for? Why should I feel anxious or depressed or angry? What's the purpose of that? I suppose what it is, is that I've been fed guilt ALL of my life - bless them - they didn't know how it would harm me, as it harmed them, and anybody else who's been fed that nonsense. God says - "Adam fell that men might be; and men are, that they might have joy" Women are that they might have joy as well. We are here in this life to enjoy it. It's not just a nice idea, but a commandment. It's been a commandment for me lately - in my personal prayer and dealings with God. It's a principle we can apply in every aspect of life...
With food for instance; when one is overweight (take it from me, I know) they don't enjoy their food. They eat it quickly, and lots of it, but they really don't taste it or enjoy it or take the time to enjoy it. It's just something they feel compelled to do, so they do it. When one takes the time to enjoy their food, taste it, make it an enjoyable and pleasant experience, they are more likely to eat less because they have taken the time to enjoy it. They are also more likely to have joy in food. We can apply that principle to every aspect of life. Take the time to enjoy it, and it will be well worth the effort. Or rather - the non-effort. Well, not that effort is unpleasant either. I mean - there's joy in a job well done, for sure. But, if you're not enjoying it, then it's really not worth it, is it? This is my new motto in life - If you're not enjoying it, it's not worth it. Yep, that's it - definitely my new motto.
You'll notice my post today is quite opposite to last week's postings. Well the reason for this is, I knew where to turn to, and I found the light I needed. I get it - loud and clear. Enjoy life, and don't feed yourself anymore of that crap you've been fed all your life. In fact, stop saying things like crap, and try really hard to use positive words.
It will be hard, but I'll try. :-)
Thanks Bunny and Marsha. I'll miss you.
