I've been sorting out my head... and I notice that I enjoy any number of things that are extremely good for me, but I don't do them much. These are things that are good for my soul, my body, or my mind... but I don't do them.
I'm going to do more good things. Fun things.
My favorite organic grocery store is not much further away than my children's old school. It is in easy walking distance. My kids and I are going to start walking there once a week for the grocery shopping. Because we can. I'll get us all juices (they just opened a juice bar) and we'll have fun.
I adore long walks. I need to train up for them... but I love them.
I love being outside. Why not go outside more?
I love creating. Why am I sitting at my computer desk when I could be sitting at my sewing machine?
Yes, there has to be balance - I can't exhaust myself (especially all at once) and then flop. But -more good things-. Nothing that I love to do - truly love to do, not idle fidgets to fill up time- is bad for me or anyone else. Quite the contrary.
We spend a lot of time fussing about the negative things in our lives, boxing ourselves out and away. Not that negative things don't have to go - but you have to put positive things IN. Fill up with joy and idle entertainment tastes like cardboard.
More good things.
