Red Velvet Cake

Inspiration: To continue to indulge more in the "sweetness" of life.

Red Velvet Cake. Thick, creamy, white frosting surrounding a decadent, scrumptuous red layer. To say it is delicious is an understatement. My whole body was in sheer delight. Last week was the first time I ever ate this. Now I know why people get so excited when this is served for desert.

Desert is very important. It represents sweetness. Both literally and
metaphorically. It is necessary to both taste and experience sweetness in our lives. When we deprive ourselves of life's simple and great pleasures, we can create an undertone of anger and resentment. While structure and rigidity can be helpful at times, it can also be constricting and cut us off from our flow.

So the next time you have to think about something, feel it first. Feel it deeply and then from that space, make a choice. Will it bring me joy right now. Then the answer is obvious.

Continue to enjoy the remainder of this year with lightness, sweetness and love.
(and of course desserts):)

Have a very "peaceful" day.
