I suppose there is some truth to this title, since deceased humans can’t really weigh-in.
What is your feeling about the other part of life (I.e. having a zest for life)?
With all the confusion I experience, there is little to no “zest for life.”
Rather, there is a desire (at this time) to be here, and some gratitude for being alive.
This can all change in a moment, if I were to have compounded medical problems.
My hope is that more medical issues wouldn’t change things, but they certainly could.
Thus, I do what I do each day, these days, to try and create an atmosphere, where I want to and am able to get some sort of nutrition and exercise (among other wants).
And, I do this by recording and playing back my very own affirmations, beliefs, quotes, sayings, and (ideal) experiences.
And, for the record, having made these recordings and playing them back, is a lot better than listening to anyone else definitively telling you what you should think! 🙂
By now, I am doing alright with creating simplistic background music too, which helps to keep me focused on the words I am speaking.
I get a bit of a thrill listening to my voice, telling me what I should think and feel—with options no less!
Options are important!
So yes, it helps to reinforce these things, and it takes a lot of time to figure many of them out!
As someone battling severe mental illness, I can only hope that I continue down this non-delusional path of personal growth, and in a way that helps rather than hurts.
Thanks for reading, and if you would, please share some things that you do ritualistically, that serve to help you with your days!
