Happy Friday guys,
My favorite day of the whole week is Friday because it’s the day that I know I get a break the next day.
But today I woke up so tired. I knew from the start I would be craving sugar because that’s what I do when I’m tired to keep myself awake and something to look forward to. At this point, I don’t judge myself for it.
I work full time now and if it happens like that sometimes, than so be it.
So today, for those who are not dessert-aholics such as myself, was National Donut Day.
Everyone in my office knew about it since we all sit on Twitter minute by minute waiting for a crazy tweet to become a news breaking story.
By 10 a.m. after looking at all the tweets and photos about everyone’s donuts around the world, everyone around me wanted a donut-including me. Very much including me.
And so one of my co-workers went and got some for all of us.
At first I only had a quarter of one. But they were right there-and looked so good, and it was National Donut Day.
I wanted to be like everyone else who was partaking in that. So by the time I decided this hours later, my original piece of donut was gone, so I took a new one-a whole new one.
Wow. Whatever Ed thoughts came with it were truly stomped on by the amazingness of that donut. To this moment, I am still thinking about how amazing it was.
Secondly, I saw on Facebook that this new local bakery that opened was hosting a “mystery cupcake challenge.” It was a mystery flavor, and if you could guess the flavor, you got the cupcake for free.
I was planning on going there anyway to get a dessert for someone’s house I was going to for an interview, but seeing that challenge just made it meant to be.
So of course I had to partake in the challenge, right? How could I not? How often do we get to be part of a mystery cupcake flavor challenge?
The lady next to me in the shop was doing it too and she was so into it. I wanted to be into it too. So I did it.
I didn’t get the right answer so the cupcake wasn’t free, but the point is I actually was part of it.
Today is definitely not one of my most mindful eating days-even dinner and some snacks today were not so mindful. But a month of mindfulness–as much as I hate to admit it-isn’t about every single day being perfectly mindful.
It’s about learning.
Today I learned that it’s ok to take part of National Donut Day/mystery cupcake challenge day.
And it may actually be more than just ok…it may actually be deserving of, and to realize that is an act of mindfulness in itself.
