My daily aphorisms. Reflections on life, death, beauty, change, love, happiness, etc., written in a poetic and whimsical style.
It would have to be one bite of something I did not care to swallow because in this instance ... one would be plenty.
Unfortunately, though, I tend to over eat when it really tastes good. :)
dang that's me 2
But you could keep one aside for a late-night snack. Besides, whoever has the most bites wins.
Well thats the point isn't it? Over eat and it makes you fat!
hmm it depends on what my one bite is...sometimes red velvet cake calls my name...ALOT! gosh, in the past 30 minutes all I've been doing is talking about good tasting food. lol
There is this old Syrian TV series which was very popular. There was a talking donkey in the series. The donkey told his owner "Do you know why there aren't any poor donkeys, but there are poor humans? The man answered with a negative. The donkey then said "Because donkeys do not eat more than they can and they leave the rest for the other donkeys."That of course was a type of social satire because we call someone a donkey when they are acting foolish, and that scene showed that donkeys are not more foolish than humans.
Unfortunately 90% of people take extra 2-3 bites always ...apieceofshe.blogspot.com
That's true but you know how I just love my food NP. It's got to be 2 bites for me.
That's a lesson most people have to learn on a diet. We've gotten to where we use smaller plates when we eat, so we can't get as much on it.
I agree! The problem of always wanting more is a function of ignoring satisfaction.
If you truly appreciate what you have, I think you can more accurately tell or even notice if you're "full" with one bite. I'm guessing a habit of greed is like being on automatic pilot in a way.
Knowing when you have enough is defiantly and important key to happiness.
This is timely during the season of over indulgence.
Ideally, that should be the case, Marty, but there is no end to human avarice. Well said!
That really is the definition of satisfaction and contentment!
Now that is a biting observation on greed.
as I express the gratitude for being alive, the math rules stop working - God gifts me 100 bites to enable the sharing
