Are you someone who tries to savour the moments that matter?
As a mother of four, my mind is often pre-occupied with the next task that I have to complete: Okay, I need to make another peanut butter sandwich, pour another cup of milk, wipe that mouth, get this one down from the table, sweep under that chair, put the soup on, wash up the lunch boxes, and make myself a cup of tea.
Most of the time, that is the dominant voice in my head.
But now and again, another voice assuages it.
A quieter voice that tells me to slow down. To step back. To breathe. To take in my children. To look at them in the eye. To listen to them. To interact with them.
When I listen to that voice, I allow myself to sink into a moment, rather than just hovering above it.
It is good to listen to that voice.
Embracing moments allows us to experience life, not just live it.
And it's the experience that then flows onto the writing and the journaling.
Yes, in order to document a moment, you have to first savour the moment.
