5.2. ENJOY WITH ME

'Enjoy with me' is a shared experience of enjoyment and it can take lots forms, from louder and more active fun to quietly going 'awhhhhh, this is nice'.  I have kept this module broad and open to make it spacious enough to suit your own personal 'enjoy with me'.

Here is a list of things that can stand in the way of 'enjoy with me' and can also help you to make more space for it. As you are you are going through it, write down practical day-to-day examples of how these things might be showing up for you:
