The July 2010 issue of Real Simple magazine has an article by Paul Bloom about finding pleasure. He writes:
"Happiness is a prolonged state of being that is influenced by a variety of factors, ranging from a person's relationships to her religion to her genetic predispositions. Pleasure, on the other hand, is a purely instinctive reaction with a brief life span: 30 seconds to an hour or two, tops. And while happiness can be elusive at times, sources of pleasure are fairly easy to come by."
The giggly pleasure of listening to children laugh, the delicious pleasure of a mocha, and the pleasurable peace of watching a beautiful sunset over water spring to my mind as wonderful sources of pleasure.
What comes to your mind when you think of sources of pleasure in your life?
