Word Pondering . . .
"For it is always wiser to consider not so much why a thing is not enjoyable, as why we ourselves do not enjoy it." G.K. Chesterton
Good question for me to ask myself when I am out among people. As an islander I don't have much opportunity to rub up against people who do things I don't care to do.
But when I come out into 'the world' all of a sudden I have to interact with others much more than I am accustomed to and I find that not everything 'you' want to do is enjoyable to me. Chesterton puts the onus back on me to examine my own heart in this exchange. Hmmm...
Wishing you all an enjoyable week!
