Love the Moment

lovethemoment

I have a few favorite books I enjoy and flip through quite often. One of them is called Love Life. I do my best to Love Life and commit to this each and every day. Loving Life is not always a bundle of fun or a barrel of laughs. Sometimes it is the sweetness or the kindness, but sometimes it is the justice or the struggle. Sometimes it is the people and activity I love and other times it is the beautiful silence and alone space that is part of loving my life.

Today as I flipped through my book I came to the page that said

LOVE TAKING YOUR TIME           IT IS A GREAT ART TO SAUNTER ~ Henry David Thoreau

saun·ter
ˈsôn(t)ər/
verb
  1. 1.
    walk in a slow, relaxed manner, without hurry or effort.
    “Adam sauntered into the room”

I have learned over many years how to saunter, but it still does not come naturally. As I consider the chaos that can come with the holiday planning, I would like to invite you to join me in this commitment. Are you willing to join me in LOVE TAKING YOUR TIME and learning about the art of sauntering? I believe it includes interrupting the pace in which we live. When I transition into the love of taking my time, I often start with a deep breath. I then ensure I am not multitasking, but give my full attention to one thing at a time. As my breaths get deeper and my body relaxes, the walking in a slow relaxed manner without hurry or effort feels light and invites me to notice different things.

How I wish I could hear your stories of slowing life down and taking your time this holiday season. Believe me, it is so valuable and worth being intentional about. I hope this Christmas season you will have stories to share about how you Loved the Moment and practiced the art of Sauntering.

One thought on “Love the Moment”

  1. Richard and I are “sauntering” around the village where the Kisses winter and glad we are missing the weather in TX and MI. Blessed to de-stress!
