I might savor this day by taking the time to do something for myself. Take a break. Rest a little bit. Do one thing today that serves me. Get a breath of fresh air. Reflect.
Remember and practice to pause … not just now, in my morning reflective time, but/ and through the day.
Breathe in and out mindfully and slowly… connect with my inner and the outer worlds around, trust and allow the natural beauty to nurture and bring me to life … and keep going! …
One hot beverage at a time.
I made a joyful noise for the Lord in church today, really listened to the sermons, offered sincere prayer. Then I enjoyed a visit to a duck pond. I think finding time to speak to God and reflect on his goodness is one of the best ways to savor a day.
Today it will be watching a TV on the ceiling of my Dentist’s surgery, wearing dark glasses.
Coming here right now, it’s night, and I struggle to savor what has been good, after seeing what happened to Bucha.
Anna, I read your response a bit ago but your sadness has stuck with me. How do you savor a moment when you feel this overwhelm..
I lit a candle for Bucha and you as a rememberance.
I can savor this day by learning and gaining as much wisdom as I can today.
By being present to all this beautiful day presents. Stay in the NOW….
Altered to more down to earth expression, to let the sun shine in and out 😊Thank you dearly. 🙏🙇
I woke up exhausted and in pain but I will visit my daughter later and we will have lunch together. I will immensely enjoy spending time with her, savouring the food and conversation and maybe go for a spring walk watching how nature awakens from its winter slumber. Maybe we’ll see some wildlife and find ourselves to be part of nature and children of Earth.
I’ll savor it by noticing and reflecting on what is before me today and every day – the beauty around me, the miracle of living, and a deep contentment for my life circumstances.
Moment by moment, be present.
Ahhh, today is my day. I’ll join my two riding partners for our Sunday ride. It’s been 30+years of companionship. I will definitely let them know how much I appreciate them. And then, my sweet girlfriend and I are going to the beach. I will try to be present in all of this and really enjoy myself. This week has been taxing (figuratively and literally 😲) and I will attempt to put all that aside and be in the moment. And just to add to the the quotes,
“The future ain’t what it used to be”
Charlie, what kind of ride? Bike, horse, motorcycle, something else? I’ll be out on a bike ride with a friend who has been out of the country for 3 weeks on a long vacation. We’ll go to the farmers’ market, get coffee, maybe go for one of our “noodling around” rides through the neighborhoods.
Hey Barb, we ride Mtn bikes. It was a beautiful ride. Lots of wild flowers. And we had time to talk in the sun. ☀️
Taking time to enjoy it and not be “doing” all the time. Maybe read my book during the daytime-something I don’t ordinarily do…in fact, it sounds rather luxurious!
Agreed that daytime reading is luxurious! I read poetry in the morning and read at night, but during the day I’m always “doing”. Last Sunday I read a while from Welcoming the Unwelcome, by Pema Chödrön. Today I’ll make a point of reading a few chapters more, maybe out on our back deck with hot coffee and some sunshine..
I really enjoy reading Pema Chodron. I haven’t read her in years, so thanks for the reminder!
My friend and I are heading over to another friend’s house for brunch. She just had a double mastectomy and several rounds of chemo. It’s been a very long time since we’ve been together. I can’t wait to be laughing again with all our inside jokes and foolishness. We love her dearly. Today is all about positive energy for life and vitality.
