If you saw someone open a bag of M&Ms and start popping them in their mouth and swallowing them whole, you might think they had lost their ever-loving mind.
You might even ask yourself… what’s the point of eating M&Ms if you aren’t going to taste them? (Then there’s me over here freaking out and thinking… if you are going to eat those empty calories, you’d better be enjoying them!)
In a world of fast food, social media and text messaging, it is a rarity that we savor our food, savor a moment, or even savor a conversation. As a society, we don’t really take much time to savor anything.
Savor, according to Dictionary.com, is derived from an old French word and simply means to “taste, breathe in; appreciate, care for.”
Let me clarify, savor does not mean you took a picture of a beautiful sunset on your phone, edited the photo with a great filter, then posted it on social media and hashtagged it with something deep, like #blessed or #breathtaking.
Nope, not savoring. Not even close.
