I was driving along with my 6 year old son in the back at the weekend when, from out of nowhere, he asked, “Daddy, how much pleasure do you have in your heart?”.
I had to think about this.
“My heart is full of pleasure!”, I eventually replied after pondering the question. “I have you and Emma and Mummy, we live in a nice place and I enjoy what I do for a living, so I have lots of pleasure.”
“But how do you know how much pleasure is in your heart? You can’t see it!”
“Well, no, but I can feel it.”
And then I did start to feel it.
Sometimes we have to remind ourselves to be happy.
