Episode 93: Savoring a Good Moment, and Who You Are in that Moment


Isn't it nice to really stop and enjoy things for once? Put away the phone, turn off the distractions and remember who you are outside of the things that are begging you to pay attention. We give power to the things that we allow to distract us, so how can we be more intent on savoring the good, true and beautiful things in this life?

Slowing down and doing one thing at a time.

Sleeping in on a Saturday morning.

Going on a long walk with a friend you haven’t seen in a while.

The feeling of opening a can of your favorite beverage.

Waking up smiling ‘cause of how happy you feel.

Being fully present in a way that you haven’t for years.

Buying a whole apple pie to surprise your family with, how delighted they are when they see it.

The way the fog rolls in around lush green mountains, it takes your breath away.

Being able to say exactly what you mean, to express yourself well and clearly.

Growing out of things that don’t fit anymore, old shoes, old relationships, old ways of thinking.

A bar of real swiss chocolate.

A friend Facetiming you from Italy to show you the beautiful countryside on the other side of the world.

Wearing your favorite color out and about.

Good warm bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

Taking time to really experience something that you ordinarily rush through.

Three day weekends and all the glorious promise that they hold.

Visiting a friends beehive, learning all about the bees and how honey is made.

When someone carefully picks a thread or a hair off your coat, and smooths their hand over the place where it was.

RSVPing YES for the wedding of someone you admire.

Stopping for a minute to take pleasure in a good moment, savoring it fully, enjoying it just as it is, for what it is, and for who you are in that moment.
