After being up all night...again, with my little one I know what my body needs is protein. And I will gladly make eggs for breakfast once the baby wakes. For now, as I sit in the kitchen with a little bit of solo quiet time, I indulge.
I'm grateful for the delicious taste of cinnamon and sugar. I'm grateful for the person who came up with cinnamon scones. I'm grateful for Panera and the delicious food they offer that I can feel good about eating. I'm grateful to indulge in this sweet treat. And I'm grateful that it is large enough for me to indulge in on multiple occasions before it is gone. I am also grateful for snickerdoodle cookies, though I haven't had one in a long time. I'm grateful for the fun name as well as the sweet, cinnamon treat itself. And I'm grateful to identify with the symbolism in the treats I love as I practice being a little sweet and a little spice as I navigate this life.
What is your favorite indulgent treat? Does it reflect your personality or just your taste buds?
May today remind us to live life with no regrets. May we consciously choose our vices and be flexible in changing them down the road. Have a beautiful day!
