How sad is that, to be surrounded by so much that can make you happy but not to realise it? As the song goes, to be “standing knee deep in a river and dying of thirst.” Over the past year I have tried to learn mindfulness and appreciation of all the bounty that surrounds me. This year, I am going to notice and appreciate what makes me happy.
Today it was breakfast, a bowl of fresh, hot porridge with a sprinkling of demerara sugar. I had forgotton quite how much I love porridge and the extra upside is I was not hungry at all until lunchtime 🙂
