Every time I pay a bill, I get a sense of gratification for getting that bill paid and one step closer to the end of the payments.
At the same time, I hate having to make that payment.
I just want to keep that money and spend it on ME.
Or save it to fix my house, whatever.
Gratifying is the sense of satisfaction from doing something.
I don't know if I ever have a total handle on that.
I love eating all my homemade jam and salsa but the gratification doesn't come until after I have it all done.
Parenthood is not all gratifying.
Many days I just feel an enormous sense of frustration.
She is a teenager- nuff said.
I have a good kid.
She is responsible and kind to others
so I do feel gratification from that.
But, once again that is after I went through all the crap to get her that way.
Whatever happened to feeling it in the moment?
I think I may have missed the seminar on how to do that.
I just do because it needs done and than I can feel satisfaction or not about it later.
I think I may need to practice my inner Buddha and just be peaceful and serene with whatever it is that I am doing when I am doing it.
No matter what it is.
Not sure that will lead me to gratification of things while I am doing them.
It really couldn't hurt.
Gratification- it's where it's at!
