A recovering alcoholic friend of mine used to say "If you don't love it, don't do it". I used to think yeah but its not that easy, we all have to do things we don't want to right?
Now I am beginning to understand what he means. He wasn't advocating walking away from life as we know it, just looking at it differently. Example:
Work - can be tedious or annoying. But, I love taking my kids skating (for example). Work pays for me to take my kids skating. Therefore, I love it!.
Hoovering - dull. But, I love my partner. Me hoovering makes my partner happy, therefore I love it!
Over eating - Great! But, will make me lethargic and unable to play with my kids (which I love doing), therefore NOT loving it, therefore NOT doing it.
Smoking - well, you fill in the blank.
