Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don’t wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it’s at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored. Earl Nightingale
I’m really not very good at savoring life. I tend to hurry because there’s a big ol’ heap on my plate. Now, I wished for this big ol’ heap and I’m really grateful for it, but at the same time, I forget to have fun.
How do you forget to have fun?
Easy. You forget about savoring life.
Practice Savoring Life
I’m working ahead of Labor Day weekend to publish this post so that I can go play on Monday. For my friends across the pond, Monday is the Labor Day holiday in the US and honors the working class – those of us who most likely live paycheck to paycheck with little reward. So it’s time for a little monkey business. :)
And yes, I tend to hurry through life because there’s always something that needs to be done.
But not today.
What do you do just for fun? What’s your favorite way to relax and savor life?
I love digging in the dirt. Just being outside on a beautiful day is good for my soul. I dream of the ocean – don’t get to go very often, but I love it there. I love to play golf but I haven’t played in a long while.
Most of the time, it’s because I’ve piled a big ol’ heap on my plate.
Hey wait a minute! I’m a certified aromatherapist – isn’t there a blend for that?
Yep. Sure is.
Savor The Moment Diffuser Blend
- 2 drops Neroli Petitgrain Co-Distill
- 2 drops Frankincense
- 2 drops Sweet Orange (substitute Lemon if you like)
- 1 drop Ylang Ylang
Add these drops to your cold mist diffuser and let it run! This blend is wonderful for lifting your spirits, calming your thoughts and grounding you. And that allows you to be in the present moment and savor life. If you don’t have these oils on hand, I’ll make 5 mL bottle for you for $19.99 plus shipping. Go to Custom Blends in the aromatherapy shop and let me know you want Savor The Moment – I’ll take it from there!
Have A Little Fun In Life
This afternoon, I’m outside with my laptop writing and guess what? A hummingbird flew right by me (3 times!). Interesting, eh?
There’s a message in that and I had to figure out what it is. The good folks at SpiritAnimal.info blew my mind by explaining the symbolism of hummingbirds:
The hummingbird generally symbolizes joy and playfulness, as well as adaptability. Additional symbolic meanings are: Lightness of being, enjoyment of life. Being more present. Independence. Bringing playfulness and joy in your life. Lifting up negativity. Swiftness, ability to respond quickly.
Now, ain’t that just something??
One of the (many) reasons I’ve been busy is adding lots of new products to my aromatherapy shop in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
You’ll find cool gift ideas including temporary tattoos, locally made soy candles and soaps and many other items for you and for gift giving. And I have gift certificates in case you’re not sure what to get.
I love having wonderful products to make your life worth savoring. So, even though it’s been a busy time, it’s worth it.
In the meantime, I’m purposely taking time to relax and play for a day!
I hope you’ve had some fun over Labor Day weekend and I hope you had time for savoring life.
