Stopping to smell the Roses

Stopping to Smell the Roses 

Wow, during my morning readings today, (usual things, tech blogs, Twitter, BBC news, ect, ect.)  I saw this amazing photo.  And I had to stop and look.  And stop again.  Sometimes I forget what an amazing city I live in.

 So often we all get so consumed in our “lives” and forget to live them.  Too often people are ultra consumed by what they are doing right then.  We all get caught up in this at times.  But to be the best employee, partner, and parent you need to stop, listen, look.  Your life will improve as you embrace more and enjoy it more.

When is the last time for no reason you told you partner you “love them”.  Called your parents, friend or kids just to say hi.  Not for a reason or obligation, but just Hello. 

Dont’t forget to call, email, blog, tweet to your friends, family or workmates on special dates, like birthdays, anniversaries, or best of all just because! 

Take a look out of a window today, find a spot of beauty, look at it, appreciate it, and love it.

Today I challenge you find your rose, call someone you have not talked to in a while.  And today when you find your rose, take a picture and send it to me.  Make my day buy sharing it.
