Stop and Smell the Roses

1. 4.

Remember to stop and smell the roses…

Life has a way of taking on it’s own momentum. How many times have you said, "I’ll do this or that after this or when this happens..” Only the “this or that” never happens or something totally unexpected comes along seemingly out of nowhere and throws you for a loop. The next thing you know you’re in a tailspin trying to regain your balance and footing. And when the dust settles, you’re scratching your head trying to figure out what to do next. An important reason to make plans because they can keep you focused when the unexpected comes along and it always does because…that’s life.

Plans or goals don’t always have to be followed to the “T”. They should serve as a guide. A plan helps to steer the course, keep the focus on the important things. In this new “digital” age things can sometimes move pretty fast, coming at you 24/7 so sometimes it’s important to slow down. I often need to step away to gain the focus, clarity, and energy needed to forge ahead.

Well I’m currently caught up in one of those unexpected tailspins and these pictures help remind me…


..and smell the Roses.

such beautiful roses! I can just smell their sweet powdery scent. hope you regain your balance soon. When one is in a tailspin it does help to have beautiful natural things to gaze upon and wonder about.

Very beautiful photos, I was just over at the rose garden in one of our local parks. I took lots of photos and let the scent surround me.
