And over the course of the last six years, I can’t believe it’s been six years almost since I went on that retreat. I’ve really started to not only embody the power of, you know, what...

…this sense of urgency that we all have that is really inflated and exaggerated and not real. So it’s giving ourselves permission to say that’s going to wait. We’re not brain surgeons.

12:24

I know for myself I will eat quickly and not really taste what I’m eating and just getting it down and onto the next thing, but if I put my phone away, engage in conversation, listen to the laughter, then I’m taking in all those senses and actually tasting my food.
