Everyone has heard the saying "Stop and smell the roses" well today I'm telling you just that!
Every American has their daily routine, wake up, eat breakfast, go to work/school, eat lunch, get off work or out of school, eat dinner, go to bed, repeat. Not to mention the routines hidden in between that list.
I have been talking recently to a friend of mine who can't seem to shut his brain off. He talks about how his mind is going non-stop, and that he needs a break (having been in college for six semesters in a row). The saying mentioned earlier was the first thing that came to my mind when I was listening to him speak.
I am just the type of person who loves to find the beauty around me, its a trait I got from both my mother and her father (my grandfather). I love watching how the trees change with the seasons, finding shapes in the clouds and my favorite... studying flowers and how not a single one is just like another. By focusing on these small simple things, I am more content, and at peace, which is a lot to be said for a college student.
My advice to you is this, as you go out today and begin your daily routine, stop for a moment and smell the roses. Then sit back and watch how much better you feel throughout the day. By focusing a little bit of your time on these simple things, you will learn not to stress as much.
"Roses are red, Violets are blue, I see the beauty, Hope you do to."
