Are you saving the world without savoring it first?

Author EB White said:

Every morning I awake torn between a desire to save the world and an inclination to savor it.
This makes it hard to plan the day.
But, if we forget to savor the world, what possible reason do we have for saving it?

I love this quote.

I've been spiraling downwards lately, fretting and forgetting to appreciate the world around me (let's not mention all those things that fall under the "self care" rubric). After revisiting this quote, I think I'll take off for a few days, give myself some down time.
