Week #23 - LIFE'S simple pleasures - Stop and smell the Roses
This week, I have the perfect cliche` that I have seen twice already today before my day has even really started!
These lives of ours can be so busy and it is easy to use a catch phrase that we just don't have the time. But there is so much you can miss if you don't take a moment, pay attention, slow down, take time to appreciate, enjoy the pleasures of life and just breathe!
I have taken this cliche of Stop and Smell the Roses and literally while walking the dogs down a path, in the middle of a sidewalk on a busy street or climbing someones driveway.... stopped and bent over to smell the roses.... or any kind of beautiful flower that is growing!!
Unfortunately, sometimes, we need little reminders throughout our busy day to tell us do that. STOP. AND SMELL THE ROSES!
I also like having instant access to Google's dictionary to look up words I use but don't always remember the actual meaning. For example.... we've all heard that phrase is cliche`, but what does CLICHE` mean... it's an expression, idea or element of an artistic event that is overused and has lost it's meaning.
These cliches`, or quotes, or life lessons are so absolutely true ... we are so busy ALL the time that we really need to just take a moment for our selves and realize the little things. That is why I am taking this weekly simple pleasure trip.... I don't want to miss out on smelling some really beautiful roses!!
