As always, a quick hello to all of my Keep the Faith listeners, thanks for being a part of this extended community of contagious encouragement.
I am proud to be an educator and consultant for Beautycounter, a B-Corp company on a mission to get safer products into the hands of everyone. The lack of regulation in the personal care and cosmetic industry is astounding and it is harming our health in very serious ways. We need more voices to join up on our mission. If you want to put your passion to purpose while being generously compensated, then I would love to start a conversation with you about what it means to be involved in the #saferbeauty tribe that is Beautycounter. Join the movement of #betterbeauty and message me via email to make your voice really resonate for a cause. Shop for your own Beautycounter collection at www.beautycounter.com/trishblackwell
QUOTES ON SAVORING LIFE
We see God face to face every hour, and know the savor of Nature. –Ralph Waldo Emerson
I savor life. When you have anything that threatens life … it prods you into stepping back and really appreciating the value of life and taking from it what you can. –Sonia Sotomayor
“You have stories worth telling, memories worth remembering, dreams worth working toward, a body worth feeding, a soul worth tending, and beyond that, the God of the universe dwells within you, the true culmination of super and natural.” Shauna Niequist
It’s rebellious, in a way, to choose joy, to dance, to love your life. It’s much easier and much more common to be miserable. We could just live our normal, day-to-day lives, saving all the good living up for someday, but I think it’s our job to live each day like it’s a special occasion, because we’ve been given a gift.” Shauna Niequist
SAVORING LIFE AND THE SEASON IN THE REAL SENSE OF IT
It’s one thing to talk about savoring life and savoring the season you are living in, but it’s a whole other thing to live it out and do so fully. Savoring life is as Shauna Niequest said, REBELLIOUS. It is uncommon. It is necessary. Doing so will make you stand out – it will make you a leader among your peers and will inspire others you might not have even imagined would notice.
To savor life take note of it – document little ways you slowed down and connected with life that you might not have otherwise done. It’s imperative that you celebrate and acknowledge your growth and increase awareness and engagement.
7 WAYS TO SAVOR YOUR SEASON RIGHT NOW
- Recognize that there is an end to each season (don’t get overwhelmed or locked into the belief of permanency – believe in change).
- Look for the lessons and beauty that surround you.
- Acknowledge what frustrates you about the season and find a way to express gratitude towards it.
- Capture memories that strike you (note the lessons, beauty, take-aways, etc.) and make a commitment that each season of your life is a season of growth.
- Decide to bloom where you are planted (don’t wish your season away and don’t just survive it, thrive in it).
- Find others in your same season (remember you are not alone)
- Gratitude journal daily
