Smelling the Roses

I had to stop and smell the roses today.  Life has been entirely too busy the past few weeks.  I thought that it was important to slow down and appreciate the small things in life. 
I have to remind myself not to let life pass me by.  I can get all too consumed in whatever project is going on at a particular time.  

I took a few minutes today to step into the garden with my camera.  I find that taking the camera actually helps me slow down.  I have to focus and look at the detail.

Beautiful things are happening all around us.  We have to take the time to enjoy the process.  The flowers didn't just appear.  They have been growing and changing for months--just like all of us.

I hope that you have been able to slow down and enjoy the life around you.  If not, I hope that you are able to take a virtual sniff of theses lovelies.

What may seem a weed to some is a thing of beauty, if given the right focus and attention.

Remember:  Beauty and inspiration can be found just about anywhere and from anyone.

Stop and smell the roses (flowers, weeds, etc.) today--and tell me all about it.
