permission to enjoy

     Just for today, I am giving myself permission to enjoy one thing at a time. I won't do it perfectly, but I will practice. Tonight, as I look back over the day, I will savor the times when I was fully present and appreciating.

“Why not give up multi-tasking and try focusing on one thing at a time? . . .  [B]e 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 Vryhof  

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