You know that saying "Stop and smell the roses?"
I keep trying to remind myself to do that. So this morning on the way to my bus I stopped to smell a few flowers. Slugs!!!
Remind me not to touch people's plants when it's been warm and damp!
Yes I know the saying refers to life etc etc.
I just figured why not stop and smell the plants. I walk past these gorgeous gardens every day and often think I'd love to smell the flowers. So I did and then jumped back like the atypical person who had come face to face with a mouse.
Still, I guess the home owners probably got their mornings amusement from that.
Did you know these critters climbed up plants? No, neither did I.
I have always seen them on the pavement but actually never climb a plant.
Anyhow stopping to smell the roses applies to life as well.
Every day I see the same people on my facebooks complaining about life etc etc.
I want to tell these people, STOP and smell the roses.
There is always something sweet if you take the time to look and appreciate it.
Yes it can be hard, believe me I know that full well.
However, we are all masters of our own destinies and have to accept the responsibility of these.
So smell the roses today and you just never know what you may find. I found a slug. But it wasn't a bad thing.
That slug represented something living and vibrant.
