If It’s not a HELL YES…

Yeah… so I was recently watching a video and the discussion was about the fact that most of us are not living up to our highest dreams.

At some point during the conversation, everyone came to the agreement that most folks are doing what other folks have said that they should be doing–never questioning their own fundamental wishes.

After a bit of a lull in the video’s dialogue, one of the participants politely expressed her newfound philosophy on life:

If it’s not a HELL YES…It’s a HELL NO!

Unknown

Eureka!

That’s it!

So I decided that if whatever I’m thinking about doing next does not excite me to the highest heights, then it’s an automatic and emphatic HELL NO for me.

Any thoughts?

YAAASSSS!

Anyway…

Today, let us consider the old adage:

“The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.”

Hmm….

Well… I don’t know if it’s true in every case, but it sure did work for me and Mama.

Just kidding!

But not really…

No, seriously folks, while the quote points to the way to a man’s heart, it doesn’t necessarily guarantee arrival–not to mention–a permanent stay.

Am I rambling?

Probably.

 

Maybe this whole thing is a non-issue…

An old wives tale…

Low level philosophical nonsense!

Pseudo-intellectual fodder…

But…maybe there’s some truth to it…

Or…maybe not.

Alas…

The debate continues 🙂

Have a wonderful week my friends!

Love and light to you all!
