Taking time to smell the roses.

We all lead frantic, stressful lives attempting to juggle our roles. We allow people to get under our skin who deserve no place there. We sacrifice our hopes and dreams because we’re constantly told we’re not capable by people who resent us trying to escape the boxes they create for us.

We hold our tongue and give no voice to unkind thoughts though others do not return the favour.

That is why……

Sometimes it is important to smell the fresh cut grass, to savour the first sip of morning coffee, to roll up your trouser legs and paddle in the icy sea, to get out in the fresh air, to read a new book, learn a new skill, make a new friend.

To talk, reason together, search the scriptures, truly love and pray earnestly together because life is short.

There will always be those who will tear you down, who will be jealous of and resent you and want to see you fail, regardless of who they are in your life but that is their loss and their fault and their bitterness to carry.

You, keep shining.
