"I get so lost in where I want to go I forget that the place I'm in is already quite magical."
When I read this quote recently, my response was "Yep. Sums it up."
It is the reason that I chose to have another North Star word of the year.
Savor/ take delight in, relish, enjoy
Even in the most beautiful moments, my mind drifts towards how I can make it better.
As I try to fix, change, and improve what is already whole - I miss the goodness of the moment.
Savoring for me is to enact a pause.
To inject a sense of enoughness. To witness and cherish what may shift in a moment. To saturate my entire being with the joy of what is.
1 month in...how is it going?
I still run right past a lot of goodness.
And then I have moments like these (see picture), where the universe collaborates to teach me the lesson of savor. She says, "fresh snow, nature, silence, movement, friendship...enjoy everything about it.
