[quote] stop and smell the roses.

This rings so true in my life right now. I have this horrible tendency to get into “survival mode” and just try to make it through X amount of minutes/hours/days/weeks/months/years until “life” will start or until whatever I’m trying to get through is over… but the thing is, those minutes/hours/days/weeks/months/years are all life–every one of them. If  don’t stop and appreciate each of those as they come, one day I’ll look back and wonder where the time went. that’s one of my biggest struggles… to take each day as it comes and be thankful for each of them. So that is part of why I love this so much. It is kind of a slap in the face to me and reminds me to be real about things!

I hope this post finds everyone enjoying their Friday nights! Have a happy weekend, blogland!


“For a long time it seemed to me that life was about to begin- real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life. This perspective has helped me to see there is no way to happiness; happiness is the way. So treasure every moment you have and remember that time waits for no one. Happiness is a journey, not a destination.” (Souza)
