Stop and Smell the Roses

Sometimes stopping and smelling the roses seems like it’s not option for most of us. We’re all busy, with kids, pets, work, our spouse, our parents, our grandparents or just life in general. Some of us are just bad at time management, period. Yet, despite all of our crazy lives, stopping and smelling the roses is just damn right important. Taking a minute or two to stop, take in, and enjoy all the wonder that surrounds us is best for our souls.I encourage you, the next time you see a pretty flower, a beautiful tree, a sunrise, a sunset, or whatever it is that catches your eye, to stop and take a minute or two and enjoy! It’s the best feeling in the world. Take a photo of it so you can remember it, too. If you don’t have a phone with a camera or a camera at least stop and stare for a while for a good mental picture. Below are some stop and smell the roses moments I’ve experienced in the past couple weeks.This is a place I drive by on one of my routes home.

The first 2 are a sunset and the second 2 are a glimpse of the sky early in the evening right before a storm. I hope you’ve enjoyed these photos but I hope you stop and smell the roses sometime soon, more. Love to all: Mallory Lov-E-thic for everybody

Lover of all humans, animals, books, traveling, crafting, painting, photography, learning new things, meeting new people, experiencing new things, listening, sharing, and most importantly, LIVING BY A LOVE ETHIC. “Love ethic” is an phrase adapted by one of my favorite authors, Dr. bell hooks. In one of her books, hooks defined love according to Peck's definition in his 1978 book The Road Less Traveled: love is “the will to extend one's self for the purpose of nurturing one's own or another's spiritual growth” (as cited in hooks, 2000. (2000). All about love: New visions.
