Unintentionally Intentionally

Today’s Perfect Moment falls into that weird category of unintentionally intentionally happy little things. If you’re confused, all I can do is ask you to read on.

On Friday, as a treat to myself, or perhaps as the dessert to my lunch, I had some Lindt chocolate I bought at the grocery store on Thursday night. I was kind enough to share it with someone.  After a few pieces, we both agreed that we should not eat all of it and save it for another day.  We are both trying to be a bit more health conscious or at the very least calorie and sugar conscious.

Truth be told, I expected that I would eat it later that night after I got home or at the latest on Saturday after my bike ride (which did not happen due to rain) or after I sanded and painted the front of my house. I suppose that really wasn’t in the spirit in which I stopped eating the chocolate on Friday, but all’s fair…..

For whatever reason, I did not eat the chocolate and there it was in my lunch bag on Monday morning when I packed my sandwich, peach, and yogurt. Though I considered eating it for breakfast, I left it in my lunch bag. When lunch rolled around, I had a nice dessert–which I shared again.  Fortunately, it was still delicious and a perfect ending to my lunch.

So, I intentionally did not eat it all on Friday, but I unintentionally still had it on Monday for lunch. That’s how we got to Today’s Perfect Moment.
