I’ve shared with you recently my journey of spiritual development through reading “The Monk who sold his Ferrari” which basically tells us the benefits of eating sensibly, meditation 🧘♀️ and getting up earlier and seizing the day.
I found that I was getting up earlier and earlier ( like two hours after going to bed earlier) I was wide awake painting, writing and 😏 eating!
The former activities I think would be acceptable but I realised after **** tins of Quality Streets I just had to behave. I felt ashamed 😔 John never missed an opportunity to point out that he had not had one chocolate out of the **** tins that I had purchased. 😇
When my daughter called I told her to help herself to my tin ( I had eaten all my favourites anyway 😋 ) I begged her to take some in her pockets for my grandchildren after school but she refused, saying they eat enough rubbish without me adding to it 😳
I faithfully told John that I would not purchase anymore quality Streets, I emptied what was left and put them in a plastic bag in the fridge! …… Did you know that they taste far better when they’re cold 😃
One Christmas I had so many chocolates bought that I put them in batches of three in the freezer, this may surprise you but I then mastered the way to hold a frozen chocolate in my mouth until it defrosted. 😍😋🙃 Oh Yes, I am a woman of many talents and a master of none 🙄
Imagine my and John’s surprise this morning when our online grocery delivery arrived at our door and the delivery man told us we had rather a lot of substitutions to our order. The supermarket had not had their delivery of fresh carrots 🥕 did we want tinned carrots instead. Here is me trying to live a more spiritual existence, eating live food from the ground! ( okay I know tinned carrots were once alive) but nevertheless people would recognise that it wasn’t a fresh carrot 🥕
I had ordered a large bag of salted peanuts 🧐 half way to healthy eating, they had substituted them with 6 small bags, I let that one go because peanuts are moreish so that maybe was a spiritual gift to stop me over eating ☺️
Then I heard John say ” A tin of Quality Streets”. ” Oh yes,” said the driver, “that is a gift to compensate for the changes to your order” Personally I think the Universe is having a bit of fun with me or just testing my commitment! Either way the tin will be given away to a good home! Honestly 😇
