How many times do you actually do this? We all lead busy lives and its often just the weekend that we let ourselves relax. How about in the week why not let yourself pause at certain parts of the day. Something that I have made myself do is to allow myself my lunch without any interruptions. Its very easy if you work in corporate to just sit at your desk and eat on the go. Not only that while you are sat at your desk people will constantly interrupt you. By giving yourself that space in the day you allow your brain to switch off and to enjoy your food. Look at all the beauty around you. Its very easy to live life 100 miles per hour and not notice mother nature. Make time to meet with friends constantly saying you are busy means you miss out on spending time with loved ones. When you take time to enjoy the moment life takes on new meaning.
At the souk a couple of days ago, I ran into an older gentleman from Belgium who immediately began raving about these delicious peas. He was so delighted about the fact that they were so fresh and likely picked that morning. We stood in the bustling souk for some time chatting about traveling and life in Morocco. He had such a zest for life and told me about how he has a bicycle here he rides around from town to town (not an easy feat, I tell you!). It was such a beautiful moment in time, to pause in the midst of a chaotic souk and connect and share with another being. Needless to say, he inspired me to get a kilo of these tasty little guys, and I sit here, enjoying them fresh from the pod, savouring the moment. #peasinapod
