Du tänker den du är…

Sue, you said: ”sometimes find that most of a day has gone by at work without me thinking about any of the useful stuff I was planning to think about, like spinning good feelings.”
Remind me of my friend who would confide to me: ”Sometimes I wash the dishes and then think, Oh, I nearly forgotten – sex with my husband…Darn it! Another chore!”. I wasn’t surprised when their marriage fell apart. However, if you have somebody with addiction, like smoking, they never forget about it.
In Seattle people are forbidden to smoke inside office building or near them. So people who smoke never forget to interrupt their work, go outside, often they have to ride an elevator down 20 something stores and then go and find a place to have a smoke without getting drenched by Seattle rain. This is dedication.
What if we become obsessed with feeling pleasure, having fun and generally make life more enjoyable instead of seeing life as a series of chores or a performance that is always judged. Some people obsessively wash hands because they believe they may get sick. But when we allow feelings like anxiety, worries, fear run inside our bodies we are risking making ourselves sick. Those neurochemicals are toxic.
What if we become obsessed with cleaning our mind from toxic emotions and do it obsessively? When we go out we never forget to dress up. We never forget to put on a pair of pants or a skirt.
Yet, we somehow believe it is not important to dress our attitude. Just a thought.
