Yes… I know it’s technically “stop and smell the roses”. And smelling sunrises doesn’t make sense nor is it possible. But my blog, my rules 🙂
The whole point of the “stop and whatever-you-choose” is to pause from life’s craziness to give yourself a break and find a bit of joy in the small stuff. Roses or other flowers, sunrises or sunsets, a small child running around a playground with a huge smile on his face or stomping on the ground so he or she can see shoes light up, a cute furry puppy, etc.
Taking a deep breath and focusing on something other than life’s busyness for even just a minute or two can be refreshing and rejuvenating. Promise.
You might even stop and smell the sunrise like I did this morning 😉
