Savor the Season
To savor something – a meal, a moment –
is to take notice, to pay attention, be mindful, to truly appreciate
everything that’s before you.
Soak it in with all your senses.
Breathe in the rich smells.
Taste all the flavors.
Hear the music and the chaotic chorus of voices and the clinking of glasses.
See, really see, the people in front of you. Don’t look past them to what’s next.
Embrace your emotions. Feel the love.
And be grateful for everything that you have right now.
Show your gratitude.
Say thank you to those who helped you along the way.
Promise to give back – your time, your energy, your money, your passion.
Savor the season.
Have a happy Thanksgiving!
