Take Time To Savor
The past few days, I took time away to “not” think of finding a new home, a job, or anything else. I was able to take time to savor because there were no expectations from others or myself. It did not hurt that my friend has a vacation rental and we would be staying for FREE, in a luxury home, near several other friends. We arrived, went grocery shopping for the stay, came back, and just enjoyed each others company. (Yes, hubby went with me. I rarely leave home without him.)

Take Time To Savor
Day two we got to visit with our musical friends and enjoyed learning about different tone woods for guitars. We went back to the vacation home and just chilled. Yay, more time to savor. I had such a nice, relaxing day with our musical friends (and hubby) that I did not even think of my business or The Busy Woman Facebook fan page but once. I think I need to hang out with people like this more often!
Day three we reconnected with a high school friend and were able to pick up where we left off 20 something years ago. It’s funny how some people are so different from their younger years and some are still the same person inside, in this case, kind and sweet. I savored each moment. (Learning to take time to savor is a process. It just doesn’t happen overnight.)
a little something to let them know you were thinking of them?

Hanging out with good people helps nourish your soul. The key phrase here is “good people.” But how do you know for sure who those good people are? I think most people are good people.
During this part of the journey, I learned another lesson. Before sharing yourself with others, test the waters to see who is worthy of hearing your story, and in some cases, “any” part of your story. Even though you felt close to someone long ago, it doesn’t mean they deserve to know the details of your life.
Is there someone you are giving more of yourself than you should be?

Until next time…
