I would like a show of hands. Do you do what you want to do. I"m not talking about your job or any of the requirements of previous decisions like getting married and having children…I'm just curious how many people just do what they want to do…do you perform, behave and live up to other's expectations? Or do you have the freedom to do what you want to do. Do you watch what you want to watch on TV regardless of what someone else wants to watch or do you excuse yourself to another room and watch your own TV? Do you have planned meals – do you eat when you want to eat; when you are hungry or when it is appropriate to eat. If you enjoy a nice long warm shower, do you take a nice long warm shower. Do your recreational activities involve things you like to do or things that someone(s) else likes to do. If you want to stay up at night, do you stay up late at night and/or do you have freedom to sleep as late as you would like…(on your days off this doesn't include work days). Do you sit down and enjoy hobbys or reading even if your chores are not finished….do you make your bed every day? Do dirty dishes in the sink bother you…if you are married or living with someone, are the duties of housekeeping split up or do chores and duties fall along previously designated gender roles?
Would like to hear your thoughts.
Until next time….
