Zest


Welcome to our meditation... Take a deep breath. Stretch your arms and legs. Roll your shoulders. Align your posture. Relax your body. Relax your mind. Let us focus for a moment on that tangy fruit, the lemon. Its bright, sunny, yellow color. The invigorating, citrus-y scent. And what the lemon has to show on its outside is surely a great preview to its inside. Lemons make our taste buds dance. Their tangy flavor adds spark to our drinks, dishes and desserts. They are the epitome of Zest. We can learn a lot from this versatile little fruit. Just like the lemon, our zest for life is reflected by our insides as well as our outsides. We can see it in our bodies and faces. We can hear it in the tone of our voice. Sometimes we can lose track and the patterns in our lives can cloud our enthusiasm. Having something to look forward to can bring zing into our lives. Make plans. Buy tickets to an event. Or maybe take a couple dance lessons. Today let us try to be more like the lemon: Bright, versatile, and full of Zest!
