A new idea is exciting. It actually feels good. +1 Pleasure points.
As I was thinking new thoughts the other day, I was able to actually feel the good feeling and sensation that comes with a new idea. Learning something new – at any age is good, and figuring it out on your own is even better. I can actually feel it.
When I learn a new fact, I am pleased. It happened this weekend, and I was with somebody. I actually said; Pleasure +1
That made me smile even more, and I felt the joy of a new idea. A new slogan.
This little slogan has two meanings I can think of. The idea of “+1” is a gaming term meaning a point, or add to your health or some other accomplishment of some sort. In games, we also refer to points of battle or skills. +1 Armour makes us better equipped in the game. +1 Experience makes us wider. I assume +1 Pleasure makes us very happy.
When reversed, as I said it originally, “Pleasure +1” can also mean more pleasure – up to 11. Maximum plus a bit… infinity +1.
A lot of pleasure. We’re adding to it.
We’re not always able to detect the feeling of pleasure when we succeed, but sometimes we do. An actual feeling of well being and happiness floods over our brains and we smile. Getting praise, doing well at something, winning are all things we can feel good about and actually FEEL pleasure.
Or at least I do. I may even sigh a little bit. A happy sigh. MmMmMmmm
I am even more pleased when I see happiness and pleasure in others. The pleasure I experience when I have made another smile – or laugh is the best. It almost warms me up. When I see happiness in others, I feel it so much, I unconsciously mimic it.
I only noticed I do this recently. When you smile, my lips mimic a smile. When you laugh, I laugh. This may be true of you as well, and you didn’t think about this way. Smiles and laughter are often shared and spread contagiously. I noticed the mimicry factor perhaps unique to me, when I detected I also seem to mimic kisses. I pucker my lips when I see others kiss, every single time. It’s an instinct reaction. Whatever you do with your face to show joy, I mimic, and feel joy too.
+1 Pleasure point.
I can’t help but smile when you do. My face just does it, and I feel it.
Justin Beaber had it right when he sang; “You smile, I smile”.
