There are times when I do not want to think, and I’ve found a new little “guilty pleasure*” that helps me accomplish just that: a TV show named, “Say Yes to the Dress”. Jack doesn’t quite share my unbridled enthusiasm, but even though he doesn’t want to admit it, he kind of likes it too.
I never would have watched a show like this 10 years ago. I took life (and myself) much more seriously in my 30’s and 40’s. I wanted to be considered serious, intellectual, spiritual and deep. A few weeks ago, I was listening to a lecture (recorded in the 1960’s), by Neville Goddard, and I laughed out loud at his statement (talking about ministers), “They say that they’ve come to preach the Good News and they’re all dressed up and behaving like undertakers!”
Among those whom I like or admire, I can find no common denominator, but among those whom I love, I can: all of them make me laugh. — W. H. Auden
*I loved the definition of, Guilty Pleasure, from Wikipedia. “…the guilt involved is sometimes simply fear of others discovering one’s lowbrow or otherwise embarrassing tastes…”
What can you do this weekend to bring a smile to yourself or someone else? I invite you to share one of your own guilty pleasures here with us.
