When we’re really busy–or really struggling for any kind of reason–it’s easy to miss the little miracles that happen in our lives every day. When we miss them, we miss the joy and happiness they bring. We miss the pleasure and reassurance they carry. We lose.
There will always be a thousand things to do. We will always be busy. But why are we doing all we’re doing if we then lack the time or good sense to enjoy anything–including life itself?
Pause. Take a moment. Draw in a couple deep breaths. Don’t settle for just smelling the roses. Also smell their leaves and stems.
