I have started lighting a candle at meal times as a daily ritual, and I think it changed my life. Let me explain.
Last weekend, I have the incredible opportunity to visit a dear friend who lives on Orcas Island, an almost ridiculously idyllic island off the coast of my home state of Washington. Each gathering around the dinner table was started off with a lighting of a candle, which her ball-of-precious-energy son stood on a chair to do.
Such a tiny action, but it brought an incredible energy to both the shared space and meal in front of us.
In a world of fast food, meals eaten on the go, and sometimes even skipping meals all together, this simple daily ritual made me realize that eating may be the single most powerful daily ritual we can do to save ourselves, and possible save our world.
I will leave it at that, but if you have a candle handy……
Wishing you an inspired Saturday, friends.
