Happy New Year!
The only thing that has changed is an increased attention to savoring life. Instead of eating and running off to the next thing, I will savor my well-prepared food. I will enjoy and savor the clients I have learned to care about and welcome to the fold any new clients who are ready to work with me. As I put away my decorations, I will linger over them, remembering how they came into my life, and blessing the people who are associated with them.
I will reinstate my morning ritual of a gratitude journal, and before I have that first sip of coffee in the morning, I will take a moment to notice its aroma and really enjoy that first sip. I will spend a few extra moments cuddled up to my husband in the mornings before we go our separate ways.
To keep me grounded, I am setting my timer for five times a day and when it goes off, I am going to check in. Am I savoring or squandering my time?
It’s going to be a great year!
