Take time to smell the flowers

Have you taken time to smell the flowers?   Have you taken the time to just stop and look at the beauty that surrounds you?

Often the pace of the world grabs us by our hands and takes us for a walk on a path we’d rather not be on and when that happens we don’t take time to see the world.    The time for peace, quiet and serenity disappears into the noise and chaos of the day.    See the day!

Reflect

“Each of us is here for a brief sojourn; for what purpose he knows not, though he senses it. But without deeper reflection one knows from daily life that one exists for other people.”  Einstein

“Knowing others is wisdom, knowing yourself is enlightenment.”  Lao Tzu

Take a moment and reflect on this past week.

What did you learn?

Did you thank someone?

Did you find joy in your week?

Did you find peace in your week?

Write down the high points from the past week?   Can you repeat them?

Take a deep breath – exhale – relax and refresh your mind.

Contemplatation

Take a moment to just sit back and relax.

Take your thoughts on a journey.

Contemplate today, tomorrow and the days to come.

What do you want to see?

Time out

Take a minute today out of your busyness and stop. Sit down, be silent and relax. Have those around you do the same. Silence the noise. Stop the action. Shutter the voices. Silence the mind.

Do it for one minute. You have the time.

Relax, rejuvenate, rejoice, reflect.

In today’s culture movement and doing are valued. Sitting still being quiet and relaxing are not values most people cherish. What if you spent a moment relaxing, allowing the tension and stress ( a societal poison) go? Would that be of value to you?

Our lives are filled to the brim. The worry or thought is if we aren’t doing – always doing – then we are of course NOT doing. The TV is on to numb our brains after being bombarded by the needs of the day. Unplug the TV – let there be quiet.

It only takes a minute.

Relax, rejuvenate, rejoice, reflect.

Do it daily. Make it a habit.
