BLES'S' -Savor the Moment after Conversations
After a good meal with friends you want to linger and enjoy the memory of the good meal and fellowship. During one my trips to Brazil we went to a Japanese restaurant and had wonderful food cooked by non-Japanese speaking Brazilians. We pat our enlarged tummy, tell stories and take pictures to remember that great meal.
When we have experienced a good and engaging conversation, it brings positive emotions and creates good memories which will linger long after it happened. To savor the moment after an engaging conversation I usually tell the person how encouraging it was.
Sometimes it brings man-tears, a man-hug or man-back-slap. Women seem to have an easier time "savoring the moment" but thankfully professional athletes have shown men how to do man-cool ways of showing physical expressions of celebration and affirmation.
