11 Ways To Invite Pleasure Into Your Life
Ways to be in touch with creating and celebrating more pleasure in your life. Don't wait!

7) Don't limit yourself by another's belief on what is enough. Go back for Life's seconds. Stop when you have had enough. Only your own self-judgment keeps you from going for what you want. In Conversations with God, God says “I don’t care what (work) you do; all I care is that you fully express all of who you are." Does that mean being active in six major projects? Going out to concerts and dinner and meetings four nights a week? You get to decide.

8) Don't make snap judgments about people or places. There is good and not so good in everything. Give it a chance to shine. When a man I met through the personals sent an inappropriate email card, I didn’t ditch him, because I knew he had a good heart. Some people take time to open up.

9) Tune in to the little things. Look and listen for what soothes your spirit and quiets your busyness—star or cloud gazing, daydreaming, birds flying, lilacs, a water fountain, the variety in a garden center, or classical music.

10) Do whatever it takes to figure out what fulfills you. Then give yourself over to it. Examples that inspire or fulfill might include the artist Gaudi in Spain; Journaling; Barbara Sher's books; Tony Robbins, B. Kipfer’s 14,000 Things.to be Happy About and The Wish List.

11) When you experience bliss, wherever you are, embrace it. Don't put conditions on it. Let it come; let it go. When I was in Europe a couple years ago, I had only three days to spend in the Swiss Alps. I would have loved extra time. But I got total delight out of those three days. Preferences are fine, but —delight in the day.
