i’ve still been feeling quite down lately. i’m still not trying to let it consume me and for the most part, i’m able to take it one day at a time. and trying to do whatever it takes to get me through the day.
learning from the past, this is the type of time where focusing on the small things that bring me pleasures in life will help me get through a difficult period. and after my post yesterday, i realized that i haven’t done a ‘guilty pleasures’ entry for a very long time. the last one was over a year ago!
so yesterday, i listed some of the small pleasures on my mind recently. and i would like to take this opportunity to expand on one. simply because it’s the one that sticks out most for me, not just as an adult, but also looking back from my childhood. and that one thing is simply…
eating peanut butter from a spoon.
i still love doing this. and it’s never more then one or two small spoonfulls. i don’t mean sitting there with a jar and eating it with a spoon like i’m having ice cream or pudding.
just a spoonful is all it really takes.
yesterday, i did that. i have a small jar at work which i use for lunch on half a whole grain pita. just to give me a bit of protein while letting me indulge in some sweetness and fat. but i didn’t use it for lunch yesterday and so i don’t know – i just felt like eating some. and with that, i retrieved my spoon and dove in.
anyway, that’s one of my guilty pleasures.
i’m going to go ahead and read some of my archived posts that includes ‘guilty pleasures’ as a tag.
