Enjoying my new mug, thanks to Anthropologie
Here's the thing,
I'm an impatient person. When I get a new shiny toy, I like to unwrap it with my bare hands in a hurry before realising that I may in fact need scissors to do the job. When I get a meal placed in front of me, I gobble it all up ever so quickly (sometimes I question whether I chew). When I find a new show to watch, I will spend hours upon hours watching the whole series within a couple of days. When I make myself a hot cup of coffee, I drink it's boiling contents in a speedy fashion to ensure it doesn't go cold.
I like to do things quickly and efficiently. It's just my style.
But, here's the other thing,
I'm starting to realise that placing all my eggs in one basket and turning them all into one big omelette has its consequences. Sure I get a nice big breakfast that morning but what about the next morning? What will I eat and enjoy then?
I'm starting to learn that taking sips in life is, in fact, a better and more enjoyable way to live. Counting my blessings everyday and letting myself enjoy the good slowly means I can savour these moments for days, months and years to come.
I mean, if I were to cross off everything on my bucket list now, what on earth will I have to look forward to? What will I have to work towards?
Tell me, are you a sipper? or like me, do you like to take big gulps at life?
