When I slow down long enough to smell the roses, I usually see the beauty and all else that is ours to share.
The greatest gift we can give ourselves and others is our complete attention, as the saying goes. This resonates with me because I’ve begun a daily meditation practice that is making me more aware of the moment I’m in and the fact that it is one-of-a-kind and unique, never to be experienced again. I missed so much subtle beauty because of my former attitude toward life. Life really is what you make it – it can be a terrible chore with few and far between moments of joy, or it can be a continual process of gradual awakening and learning.
The choice is yours.
