“Some moments are nice, some are nicer, some are even worth writing about.”
It is still dark out and the world remains asleep as I write these words. I sip my tea, and savour the stillness, the quiet, the space of being able to think without distraction.
This savouring … it’s a special moment.
Savour everything you do, every experience. There is no moment that cannot be savoured – even those routine moments, even those times when you are having a difficulty with someone else, even those times when you are alone with nothing to do.
Savouring is about learning to live presently, to fully enjoy the gift of each moment, to give that moment the space and attention it deserves. It takes practice, but it is a delicious practice.
Savouring teaches us to be mindful, to live life in the present, and much more.
Try it …Savour tea, or chocolate, or a handful of berries … slow down. Pay close attention – the closer the attention, the more if got out of the savouring. Do not rush to the next thing, but stop and give some space to the activity. ……Focusing on only the taste brings us more pleasure in fully enjoying being in the moment.
Savour your special moments today.
‘‘Many people are alive but don’t touch the miracle of being alive.’’
