Pleasure Can Taste Good, Be Fun to Watch, And Change The World

Last night we had a wonderful anniversary dinner at a local restaurant The Mediterranean that features Tapas, which is such a great way to have lots of different and interesting tastes Have I ever mentioned how much I enjoy food both cooking and eating?  I get inspired eating really interesting food combinations.  Cooking is such a delicious form of creativity.  What is your favorite place to have interesting food?  Do you enjoy inventing and cooking special dishes?

Speaking of pleasure, the NBA is back into action and now everyday there are new web articles for me to read about my team the Portland Trailblazers.  They will be fun to watch and I get a regular basketball fix now daily.  What sport’s teams gets you excited?  What are you a fan of and how do you participate? 

Looks like my theme so far is about what pleasures in life that get me excited.  There are many more but these three: my wife, food, and basketball are on the top of my list.  Doing what you enjoying doing is big because it makes your life feel worth living when things can be a real challenge at time.  What makes you feel good about life?  What fun thing do you need to remember to do enjoy this weekend? 

This next item I am writing about may not seem connected to the above topic but it is clearly related in my mind.  First a quote worth appreciating:

First they ignore you,
Then they laugh at you,
Then they fight you,
Then you win.     Mahatma Gandhi

This should be the inspirational quote for all who take on great odds to bring about important and necessary change in the world.  Yes promoting positive change is another very pleasurable activity for me.  Helping make the world a better place is one of the most rewarding purposes to pursue in your life.  When you do something that makes a difference it feels so great. 

Have a fun weekend and toss in some pleasurable activities and change the world while you are at it.
