stop & smell the roses

“Stop and smell the roses” is an old saying.  I don’t know much about the phrase’s origins, but it’s basically a gentle reminder to slow down and take your time, to just be, and to be grateful and happy for the beauty (and opportunities) around us.

Each time I go to the grocery store, I literally stop and smell the roses.  Try it some time.  You might like it. 🙂
