I found a new-to-me quote that gives another thought on how we can live our lives more beautifully. It's all about doing dishes and dessert:
"If I am incapable of washing dishes joyfully, if I want to finish them quickly so I can go and have dessert, I will be equally incapable of enjoying my dessert.
With the fork in my hand, I will be thinking about what to do next, and the texture and flavor of the dessert, together with the pleasure of eating it, will be lost. I will always be dragged into the future, never able to live in the present moment." ~ Thich Nhat Hanh
Wishing you a pleasant day,
