permission to enjoy

      How would it feel if somebody invited you to give yourself permission to enjoy one thing at a time today?   

“Why not give up multi-tasking and try focusing on one thing at a time? . . . [T]ry to be fully present, appreciating every aspect of the task before [you], and giving thanks to God for the skill to do it. . . . [G]ive yourself permission to enjoy the task.” Br. David Vryhoff  

“Rejoice. . . . Give thanks. . . .” 1 Thessalonians 5:16, 18
