Stop & Smell the Roses
Enjoy pausing for just a moment!
People often say the phrase, “stop and smell the roses” to other people who seem to be over busy....working, raising children or just busy with life! “Don’t forget to stop and smell the roses.” Yet, do we ever really do it?
Keep in mind, it’s not literally about smelling a rose! It’s about slowing down in the midst of the craziness of life and pausing in an uninterrupted captured moment.
Our sense of smell takes us to those pause moments where our brain says, awww yes!
Maybe it’s the smell of...
~fresh coffee brewing
~a new baby
~a Christmas tree
~cookies in the oven
~fresh cut grass
~or yes, even a rose.
Whatever that smell is for you, the next time you encounter it, let your mind go there and pause just a little longer and stop. Be in that pause, be all in, breathe and just be.
Make it happen for you, stop and smell the roses a little more often. You deserve it, you need it, we all do!
Living with grace,
