Have You Smelled The Roses Lately?
Recently, we have all been impacted by the worldwide phenomenon known as COVID-19, also popularly known as Corona Virus. With so much uncertainty, fear and uneasiness, we must not find ourselves so caught up in negativity, instead we should remember the beauty and awesomeness that spring gives us.
Yes, we should definitely adhere to the precautions given by the officials and professionals, i.e. masks, social distancing and staying home unless essentially required to do so. This doesn’t mean that we can’t go to our backyard and take in the beautiful colors and delicate yet fragrant smells this season continues to provide as it does every year.
Ask yourself, “When was the last time that I just stopped and smelled the roses?” Well, there’s no better time than now to take the mandated pause on your life, stop the hustle and bustle for a moment, take in some self-care, and rejuvenate and refresh yourself, your mind, and your spirit. Go out to your yard and smell those roses, tulips, daisies, and honeysuckles; watch the bees play as they continue to work in pollinating, feel the breeze pierce through your skin in the brisk morning; appreciate the setting of the sun in the evening. All in all, take this moment while you can to enjoy just being.
