The Key to my Happiness

I have realized that when I focus on the little things, keep things simple, concentrate on one sense at a time I get the most intense feelings of contentment and pleasure.

The key to my happiness seems to be keeping things as simple as possible.

I have been feeling like a square peg in a round hole just lately, trying to come up with ways I can spread positive energy – suggestions on blogs, websites and examples from people around me have just not felt comfortable to me.

But I woke up yesterday with the thought that maybe I can spread positive energy though encouraging people to focus on the little things, concentrate on one sense at a time and to slow down a little sometimes.

My Grandma always commented on how, as a child, I used to make a chocolate bar last ages longer than anyone else.  I used to take the tiniest of bites, close my eyes and let the chocolate melt slowly on my tongue, only taking another tiny bite when it had completely dissolved.

I can still remember how incredible chocolate bars used to taste back then- and the only thing that I can think of that has dramatically changed (apart from the size of the bars!) is the speed at which I eat them now.  The next time I have some chocolate I intend to eat it as slowly as I possibly can.

Though I am not sure of specifics yet, I am starting to think that I may have found the perfect fit for the wonky and off-centre peg that I am!

    I am really looking forward to learning more about your progress in this area =)

    I really like your thinking. I am a firm believer in the small things. The problem I find is slowing down enough to savour them 😉
