Why is it in our moments of pure elation and happiness, that we turn to think about what is going to mess it up and bring us back down?
There I was, four days into an amazing week. Great things had happened, I had been working out, eating right, and checking all the boxes I was trying to. I was driving with sunroof open, music up, and enjoying myself. Then I smacked myself in the face. Perhaps I am the only one that does this, but in my happiest moments I suddenly realize that I am happy. Then my eyes figuratively go wide, and I begin wondering what is wrong, or what will soon go wrong to bring me out of this state of joy. It makes me frustrated that I cannot just enjoy the moment, and live in the warmth that is presently surrounding me.
Why can I not allow myself to be truly happy, to bring back the pure joy that we had in our childhood?
I believe that is something that we are constantly chasing with diapers as Adult Babies or Diaper Lovers. Diapers bring us back to a simpler time, a time when we were allowed to just be happy. The complexities of life passed us by, and our cares were limited to a few things in our immediate view.
We live in a world where we are constantly bombarded by things we should care about. 100 years ago, we would not have been privy to a sliver of the information we are hit with. I am not trying to throw the baby out with the bathwater. I think we live in a marvelous time of the Internet, travel, and even disposable diapers. Yet, I do think that we should search for simplicity, or moderation in our lives. We are even being encouraged to simplify our lives, and make time for the things that matter most. We must find a way to slow down enough to enjoy what is truly important in our lives.
I have found diapers serve that purpose for me. In my moments of business and overwhelming emotion, when I am able to wear them, diapers center me, calm me, and focus me. I rarely am able to just escape and wear diapers, but I am able to wear while I work which helps me when I begin to feel like I’m reaching burnout. They bring me back closer to that happiness we search for.
