Pleasure © Christine Spring
It’s your right to experience everyday stuff that just feels good. It’s called PLEASURE and it is joy for the soul!!!
– “Challenge yourself, and believe!” –
Here’s the thing – you get to make a choice about this! It comes down to attitude.
My attitude is that life is short and every day has the right to be a great day! I measure a day to be “great” if it has included an element of pleasure – something done because it just feels great and fills my soul with joy.
