We have reached Day 8 of the challenge. I definitely see myself actively focusing on happiness and positivity. Is it the same for you? I would love to hear your stories.
Today was to ignore that niggling voice in our head, which is always telling to not do something, or to not eat that or constantly nagging about what is good or bad for us. Every once in a while it is good to shut that voice and enjoy as we would like to without any inhibitions.
In fact there is a reason it is said “Ignorance is bliss”. While knowledge has its advantage, sometimes it can be a chain in our feet because the more you know, the less you can take risks.
I treated myself to a few things today. Usually I am very conscious and try and avoid certain things but today I threw caution to wind and did not listen to my nagging voice. I had 3 cups of Indian chai with sugar – I usually have one without sugar. I then went ahead and bought a few snacks – chips, arancini balls and spicy chicken bites. I sat in front of the TV and munched on them while watching my favourite series.
I didn’t care that there were housework to be done and other chores beckoned me. Today was a day to enjoy without any constraints. It was pure bliss and I am now ready to go to bed feeling very content and at peace.
