Love Letter #8: How Do You Eat an English Muffin?

How do you eat an English muffin? This is a silly little love letter…and there’s a point as well.

You see, I have a thing for Thomas’ English muffins. I had one this morning with breakfast. To me, there is a top and a bottom. I always eat the top first because I find the bottom more crunchy…and I love that. 

But…this morning, I was distracted and ate the bottom first. OH MY!! 😱 You know what…it was just as delicious…maybe more so because I wasn’t hung up on ‘how’ to eat it. 

The fact that I noticed that I bit into the bottom first though tells you a lot about how stuck I can be in a small habit. 

I thought about how persnickety I am about this and wondered why and realized how much of a creature of habit I can be. 

This is not necessarily a bad thing…but it does make me curious what else I’m doing in such a routine way that I am missing out on a greater experience of life. 

I don’t have an answer just yet…but it’s definitely something I’m paying more attention to. 

Maybe you do or don’t eat English muffins (no judgment), but where are you stuck in a habit that is keeping you from experiencing something just as or far more delicious in this? I would love to know.

With love,
