Do you enjoy what you do? Are you ‘in joy’ when you’re doing it? You should consider that the short amount of time we have here on Earth should be “in joy’ed”. Meaning, that we should always strive for the things that bring us joy…nothing else.

I don’t wash the dishes, cut the grass, wash my car, shine my shoes, and a whole laundry list of other things, because they don’t bring me joy.

Some people have called me lazy and arrogant.

But, why?

Because I don’t force myself to ‘suffer’? I don’t guilt myself into doing things I don’t like to do in order get ‘brownie points’ with some nebulous entity who’s keeping score on my suffering?

I don’t do these things because they don’t bring me joy.

However they do bring others joy. So who am I to rob them of their joy by doing something I don’t want to do?

I’ve mentioned before, that years ago when I first stopped cutting the grass… the guy cutting the grass was actually smiling while he was in the hot sun, pushing that lawnmower around the yard. He had on his straw hat and a huge smile of contentment….

That wouldn’t have been me. I would have been whining and complaining every minute of the way….did I mention that it was HOT!?!

So again, who am I to rob this guy of the “in joy’ment” he gets from cutting the grass?

When I ran my technology company, I used to love troubleshooting and putting computers together. Most people hated it. That’s why they paid me to come ‘play’ on their computers for an hour or so… they hated it, I loved it…a perfect match.

So, what’s my point here??? There are people who love to do the things you don’t…let them do it. Save yourself the time and the frustration…just hire them to do it.

Practical Application

If you don’t enjoy something or if you aren’t “in joy” when you’re doing it… stop.

It lowers your vibration and ultimately you’re robbing someone of the joy they of doing it.

Yours In Joy,

Antonio
