Life moves so fast. It’s hard to stop and take a deep breath. If you don’t stop and smell the roses, then you’ll keep on moving on until it’s too late. We fail to realize that we need to stop in order to truly embrace what’s going on around us. You could be at the top of the Empire State Building, but it won’t mean anything if you don’t pause to embrace that very moment. Our minds are overwhelmed with everyday tasks. Tasks that as humans, need to be done, but should never keep you away from taking a break when you need to. Constantly staying busy will keep your mind busy as well. Stop, clear your mind, and look around. Embrace everything for what it is, take nothing for granted. One should do this at least once a day. If you don’t do it once a day, it’ll be hard to even do it once in a lifetime because life will always keep you moving, thinking, and reacting. It’s up to you, you can live without a true understanding and appreciating for everything you’re working and living for or you can stop and smell the roses.
