As you rush through your day trying to just keep ahead of it all, don’t forget that the whole reason for your being alive is to experience the magic of the world around you.
The old saying, “Stop and smell the roses” has taken on huge importance in my life and I try to do it as often as I can.
We are surrounded by magic and we miss so much of it by wasting our time bitching, worrying, dreading, arguing…you get what I’m saying.
When I used to work the midnight shift as a police officer, a shift I ABSOLUTELY HATED, I’d stop my cruiser in a quiet spot and get out to look at the stars. In between domestic violence calls and fatal car accidents, I’d take a second to look at the beauty around me.
Its proven effective “medicine for the soul”….it kept me sane for 20+ years.
Its a skill so start practicing dear ones…
