I enjoy what I do ... for many reasons. The peoples that come into my treatment space are always teaching me and, reminding me of wisdom practices that have fallen to the wayside. This past week a patient helped me remember how unpracticed most of us are in the life-giving art of slowing down and deeply nourishing ourselves.
As technology speeds us up it is becomes increasingly important to 'take your dessert'. I love a good sweet treat. And, am especially fond of ice creams but that's not what I'm advocating. What I mean by "take your dessert" is to consciously create space in your life to be sweet to yourself and sweet with those you care for. And, if your dessert time happens to involve a literal treat, well then, bless it and savor each creamy bite.
Be sweet to yourself & those you love, four & two-leggeds alike.
PS: Did you know that the Rx symbol derives from the Latin imperative verb, to take = recipe?
