Laura’s recent post (and challenge) has me thinking about savoring. I realized that one of the things that really helps me to savor is . . .
(drumroll please . . .)
I know, I know. Predictable. But really! When I put something in there, I start thinking about it. I then put a bit more weight into the actual experience (ie, if I’ve planned a date night it feels more significant than a spur-of-the-moment thing . . . not that a date night could actually happen for us without some planning, but you know what I mean). And THEN in either blogging or journaling about it (or even flipping back in my planner) I am reminded of it again.
This all helps me savor good things more. Reason #282723 why I love planning and journaling. OH, and I’ll also add that feeling organized (ie, not feeling like I have 35 random to do items floating in my head) helps me to savor, too. I can enjoy an experience much more when the rest of my life feels under control.
