The phrase “smell the roses” means enjoy the moment. Life for all of us gets extremely busy, we live in a world of go,go,go and this becomes the norm for us. There’s nothing wrong with this lifestyle except when you are unable to STOP and “smell the roses.” We need to take time to reflect on our accomplishments and take a bow. When you work hard toward something and achieve your goal, it’s then time to “smell the roses” of that accomplishment.
This is the time of year when students are graduating from High School or College. They put in many years of hard work, just to get to that big day……..GRADUATION. The moment you hear your name called and cross that stage, you feel like you just won the grand prize of all time. AND YOU DID. After the diploma is received, some people get overwhelmed about what to do next and where they will go from here, whether college or making a decision on a career path. They put so much on themselves to go to the next phase of life, that they forget to stop and “smell the roses.”
I’m writing this message to remind you to enjoy all the moments in your life, don’t minimize your chapters of success. Each milestone you get through should to be celebrated, and you need to breath in all that you have done, before moving forward.
Send me a comment if you ever stopped to “smell the roses.”
