I believe in the power of positive thinking. I believe in the power of suggestion. I believe in positive reinforcement. All of these concepts were fulfilled by this humble crepe.
I have never met a crepe I didn't like. And unless they become the "cupcake" of 2012 and appear in shops and carts at every venue in every town, I will continue to order one on the spur of the moment whenever I get the chance. They are small, delicious and always feel like a special treat.
By ordering this butter and sugar crepe at the farmer's market on Sunday, a lot of things happened. When it was presented to me, I immediately set it down on the tablecloth to take this photograph. I actually saw the vendor stand a little straighter when he saw how I valued his product.
Then as I happily ate this crepe while I meandered past the other market stalls, I noticed a few other patrons line up at the crepe table. Did my impromptu snack suggest that hot crepes were available and delicious (based on the powdered sugar on my cheeks)? Absolutely.
We are affecting each other by our actions more than you know. Slow down and try to notice if your actions have a positive effect. It is good for your state of mind.
