The odd truth is, receiving pleasure can actually be rather difficult. After all, if prioritizing pleasure was easy peasy then we wouldn’t have to remind ourselves of its importance over and over again.
So it’s truth time. Do you REALLY prioritize your pleasure?
Is it a matter of time? Forgetfullness? Other people impacting your schedule? Do you catch yourself wondering if it’s really all that important?
What aren’t you yet ready to let go of in order to truly make yourself and your pleasure come first?
In the past I’ve encouraged you to find your pleasure triggers. Today I am asking you to examine your #pleasureblocks.
Most pleasure blocks have to do with not permitting ourselves to truly believe that we come first. Let me be clear, I don’t mean this in a selfish “I get to cut the line because ‘I come first’!” way. I lived in London for far too many years to have anything but respect for standing patiently in the queue. Rather I am referring to your connection to the deep empowered truth: you and you alone are responsible for your pleasure and it’s up to you to put it first.
If you don’t put yourself first in this way, then there will never be enough time and there will always be something else to do for someone else. Putting yourself first and prioritizing your pleasure will nourish you, fill you up with aliveness and joy, and better allow you to do, create, and support. It’s actually selfish not to…
That said, and it’s always appreciated to get some extra permission, right? So here you go:
Give yourself permission to prioritize your pleasure. Name and release your biggest pleasure blocker.
