Gelato on a warm afternoon. Mmm… A warm chocolate chip cookie, fresh from the oven, with a cold glass of milk…can you picture your milk mustache? A sip of wine, as you curl up on the couch after a hectic week. Can you taste the sweet hints of blackberry, as the liquid passes over your palate? Heading to the beach, on a warm afternoon, with a lounge chair, suntan lotion, and a good book. Can you hear the waves in the distance, as the scent of suntan lotion and sunshine fill your senses?
I recently returned from a glorious trip to Italy, celebrating my 25th wedding anniversary, and took in many guilty pleasures. In my opinion, my wife and I earned them.
What about you? What are some of your guilty pleasures? Are you taking time to enjoy life? If not, why not? What’s stopping you? As long as you don’t have an addiction challenge, why not take a moment out of your busy day, hit the pause button, and simply, enjoy life, even if it’s for a mere moment.
You’ll be happy you did, and be surprised what those endorphins will do for your overall well-being.
