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!
