It is May 1st and I was able to be of service to those who were being celebrated in a local luncheon for their service to others. I happily purchased 16 avocados and additional ingredients to put this bowl of delicious guacamole together. I am so proud of my work, and I found that it brought be joy and a sense of renewal. I am sad to see it leave my reach with chips, but like anyone who cooks, professionally or non-professionally, or just within your own home, I had small tastes along the way to ensure those fully enjoying this, would have thankful taste sensations to remember later!
The point of my sharing today is about renewal. It is the beginning of the month, which is always one sure fire way to feel renewed or give yourself a sense of renewal, a new start, another chance to do or be the person you want to be this month.
I found that cooking helped me feel a sense of purpose, a sense of pride, and happiness when it was complete and I could deliver it to the intended luncheon attendees.
I suggest that you take some time to reflect, contemplate, discuss, open debate, and share with friends your thoughts on renewal, and how you best enjoy renewal activities. What is it for you? Is it cooking? Is it hiking? Is it meditation? Is it eating in a favorite restaurant? Is it taking photographs? Is it enriching friends around you with your wild and contemplative thoughts....
Which ever path of renewal you choose, I would love to hear about it and ask you to comment on this site. Please send me a message and let me know where, how, or what you did to find renewal in the month of May. I do enjoy hearing about personal growth and the experiences of the journey of life. I look forward to hearing from you and where your contemplations take you!
