Beginning to bring bliss back
How often do we say we’re going to do something and we don’t? How many times do we say we’re going to take the cooking class or golf lessons or plan a camping trip with friends and then, we talk ourselves out of it. We might actually buy a new digital camera with the idea that we’ll be ready to capture the wildlife we could potentially see on the unexplored terrain of our imaginary camping trip. We might fantasize about the amazing pasta that we could learn to cook and visualize all the oh’s and ah’s at the dinner table when we dish up our masterpiece. Some of us even go ahead and buy the golf club membership and research the best clubs. Yet, we don’t do these things. We don’t go after our dreams. We order a pizza instead or, pick up fast food. We rent a movie instead of venturing into the outdoors. We succumb to the doubts, fears and limitations that prevent us from trying something new. We allow the constrictions of our family, our upbringing, our social circle, society-whom ever and what ever-to dictate how we live, instead of taking a risk and exploring.
I wonder what would happen if we actually went on the camping trip. What memories would be created? What experiences would be shared? What would be discovered?
What if we spent a day hiking and picnicking with friends and family, instead of binging on Netflix? (I’m not judging here; I do this too.)
What if you, friends and neighbors started ‘italian night’ and everyone showed up with their favorite pasta dish to share? What would be gained from this experience?
