Awake in precious moments

“Savor” by Cary Brosius *


Ahhh, isn’t that first taste of coffee or tea divine? I don’t know about you, but I barely need the rest of the cup when I take my time and enjoy that first sip.  When we take the time, and really slow down to take the moment all in, the quality of our experience multiplies.

Sometimes when I look at my hands,
peering at the intricacies,
sensitive sensors, opposable thumb,
bone and tissue,
knuckles and joints,
I realize that I am

I am consciousness
aware of existence
Beauty and Miracles
and connect me
to the essence
of life unfolding

These hands can caress feel,
tenderly touch
this stunning,
of our co-creation

I strive
to be awake
in precious moments
to the gift
of this unique
where, when
and with who
I am

Yes! To be AWAKE in precious moments is exactly what it means to  SAVOR.

Welcome to SAVOR week.

SAVOR – taste and enjoy it completely.

This week your Bliss Initiative is to slow down and enjoy every moment. Before you take a sip, or begin anything, pause and notice how you feel. This week we are trying not to rush. This is a week of deliberate choices. This week we are taking the time to notice all the beauty and miracles around us.

Smell the roses, taste the coffee, notice the smiles, breathe deep the air. Give yourself permission to enjoy the moment. This week we savor all of it!


Tamara and January are here each Monday to help set the mood for the week!
