January 2023- Savoring a new year

I can hardly believe that we are at the threshold of a new year. I don’t know about you, but for me, time is flying by way too fast. As each new year approaches I have become more cognizant of savoring moments. But those moments zoom past so quickly that it is easy to lose focus on what is happening around me and what is truly important to savor. Over the next 12 months, I shall slow down and savor the time allotted to me — especially those loving moments I share with someone else.

My life has been blessed and I want to be more mindful of those blessings. I want to experience every detail of my life, not just sit in a rocking chair watching time float by. So, I continue towards self-improvement, random acts of kindness, and cherishing experiences.

Every year I choose a word that becomes the theme throughout the coming months. This year the word is ‘SAVOR.’ Savor is defined as ‘something pleasing’ or ‘delicious in flavor.’ With a bit of stretching, savoring a life, savoring companionships, savoring time can all be defined as appreciating each distinct moment. I want to recognize those precious opportunities and participate in loving experiences. I want to live life.

“We should learn to savor some moments
to let time feel worth existing”

~Munia Khan, Poet

In 2023 join me in capturing and savoring all the moments, experiences, people and places that cross your pathway. I will do the same!

As Fennel Hudson, author of Fine Things – Fennel’s Journal – No. 8 wrote, “Life is a wonderfully fine thing. Go live it.”

And to you my readers, may you live your life throughout 2023. It is a new year, a new beginning, a new opportunity to be thankful for what you have and have what you need — not too much, not too little, but just enough!

Happy New Year!
