Don't Forget To Smell The Roses

Our lives are so busy these days with cell phones, texting, tweeting, work, kids, and all the other things that fill our lives. This note is to remind you that there is much more to life and and that it takes effort to slow down and "smell the roses". A good way to do this is to go sailing with friends, take a long walk, listen to your favorite album, take a friend for a picnic, lay in a hammock or just lose all the distractions. One thing I notice is that there are so many things going on we forget to appreciate the people in our lives. Next time you see your parents, spouse, best friend, or even someone you really like and are just getting to know, stop and look them right in the eyes. The eyes are the window to the soul. Look deeply into their eyes. I think they will be shocked as there is so much stimuli around us we are forgetting to look each other in the eyes. And next time you pass a rose bush, take a wiff!
