My theme for 2020 is Savor. While journaling last November, it dawned on me that I don’t fully enjoy anything. I’m a foodie but I inhale my food. I love hot showers and warm baths but I use an abrasive wash cloth (not just for the rough spots of my feet and elbows but all over). I am generally not fully present to enjoy anything (and I do mean anything) that happens to me. This has always been the case. Last year, I did make gains in this area but I want it to be a focus this year-thus my theme.
Here on the blog, this theme will translate into a recurring blog post that I have entitled Savoring. Here I will feature curated content that I have enjoyed recently and I think that you will enjoy also. I am really excited about these posts. I have wanted to share things from other writers, articles that caused me to pause, pics that made me laugh, etc. Plus, this will help me slow down and notice these things – savor them, to see if I want to share them with you guys. Here goes.
- Anne Bogel gets to preview a lot of books coming out in advance of their release. She reads them and then tells us about them and that, in turn, lets me know whether I might be interested, as well. In this post she discusses nine titles, releasing in the next few months, that she really enjoyed: four of which I can’t wait to get my hands on. Can you guess what they are?
- This photo Mindy Kaling posted on Instagram. I don’t have a chair but I have an ottoman. At least, I fold them – most of the time.
- This ad about offline shopping from Bed, Bath, and Beyond. It’s very old but it made me LOL.
- It appears to me, from my friends and the people that I follow on social media, that no ones’ January is starting off exactly as we envisioned. That being said, I really enjoyed this post from Cori. If you are like the rest of us, read it and “give yourself grace”.
Until next time,
