"Right" or Hedonism?

I am at a bit of a cross roads it seems.  I have tried for the vast majority of my life to "do" things that are right and appropriate.  I am not saying I am a saint, for I most assuredly am not.  I am just saying that I tried to live a life where I based most of what I did on the thought of "What is the better choice to do?" or "What is the more correct and fair choice to do?"  I am not so sure that those questions have served me well. 

Perhaps I should either a) not think about the meaning or significance of choices or b) simply choose what is most interesting for me at the instant.  Is that what "hedonism" is at its core?   Neither a) nor b) have been ways that I have inherently acted, but perhaps that is a fault?  Perhaps it is why I am the foolish person I see inside myself? I do not know.

I will tire myself out as much as I can physically today.  I will exercise and run my physical body ragged.  It seems to be the easiest way for me to not ruminate nor reflect on life.  Perhaps that is best.

You certainly do seem to ponder on it a lot. As for seeking pleasure, it means different things to different folks, and changes over the course of a lifetime.

I'm happy enough with my cave and it's a pleasure to go camping and things like that. And I've never been interested in expensive fancy things.

Good sex is a pleasure well worth pursuing.

If I don't have to run too hard to catch it. LOL

Have a great day....

But I can be a greedy bastard at times and want the biggest piece of chocolate cake. Got milk?

Pleasure...... Sitting in my new/used recliner that Rick gave me. Last night I sat in it and watched Clint Eastwood in IN THE LINE OF FIRE.

It wasn't a great movie but it was okay.
