Suze and l were discussing on one of our recent walks what we derive enjoyment from and whilst it was and is perhaps to some an easy question .. it did prove a little hard even for me to actually say with 100% conviction what awarded me joy and what did l get enjoyment from. Personally l preferred the latter terminology even though the two words are connected …
What do l enjoy doing?
There are lots of things – that l enjoy but do not necessarily derive any form of pure joy from. Suze found the question incredibly hard to answer – mostly because although her mental health is recovering, she still has off days where she can see no light at the end of the tunnel sadly.
I have discovered that when one spends too much time trying to find happiness and contentment well if anything that can depress you quite significantly – l said to Suze to just reel off her top five …. she answered with ‘seeing my grandchildren’, ‘spending time with my friends’, ‘being with family’ and finishing off with paddleboarding. 4 out of 5 wasn’t bad l thought.
What were my top five then l pondered?
Composting, worm farming, gaming, writing and photography were the five items that first came out followed by a few others … however, my question to you today is straight forward ..
What would be your Top 5 Things that Award You Joy/Enjoyment?
Let me know below – thanks.
