Things I Love to Do

IMG_0102I think the title of this blog is funny, because I don’t really feel guilty about the things that I enjoy. I’ve come to believe that “self care” is really important. It helps us to keep a positive clear outlook on life. It helps us to be the kind of people we should be–generous, kind, optimistic. It helps us to see God’s hand gently guiding our lives. Taking care of ourselves is one of the most important things we can do.

Still, I like the title “My Guilty Pleasure.” What immediately pops into my mind is hiding on the front porch, eating a bowl full of Blue Bell ice cream. Ha! It’s those things that might not make sense to anyone else, but they bring a smile to your lips and a tingle of joy to your heart.

So here we go–some of my guilty pleasures.

  1. Reading in the hammock
  2. Playing the piano
  3. Eating sweets
  4. Spending time with family or friends, even when I have work to do
  5. Binge watching a television series

Well those weren’t too terrible. How about you? Do you have any guilty pleasures?

I draw one winner from each post’s comment section. If your name is drawn, I’ll send you a paperback book of my choice from my supply closet. If it’s one you already have, you can donate the unsigned copy to your local library or a friend. Our last winner was Marily R.
