Everyday someone says that they don't get to the things that they truly want to do. The things that they yearn to do. Most of us have to first meet the demands of our boss, our household, a partner, or our children.

Don't hurry, don't worry.
You're only here for a short visit.
So be sure to stop and smell the flowers.

Walter Hagen

Simple, right? NO!

What are you supposed to do? How do you meet the needs of everyone around you and still keep your flame from going out? How do you squeeze yourself in? (Tweet This)

We all have dreams, some we're working on, some are way down the road still simmering in our minds... waiting out time. We deserve each moment as Zen Habits reminds us, even in our hurrying moments, let's not forget to smell the flowers. Let's fit ourselves in too.

Each day we accomplish, we might not notice that we've actually moved ahead because we are too busy getting to our next "thing" whatever it might be. But what about pausing once in a while to jot it down in a notebook, this act in itself will allow us to smell the roses. We did it! Now celebrate.

You might not be one for broadcasting your highlights on social media, you're just not of that ilk. Attention makes some of us squirm. Or you might enjoy it, so go for it I say. Just always remember, that everyone seeing your post has also reached a goal that day. Sometimes just finishing the day is all that someone gets to celebrate. (Tweet This)

We're all allowed to smell the roses. (Tweet This)

Give yourself that moment. Then share what you've learned by encouraging others, you might not get as many followers/hits/retweets but you will get the satisfaction. I promise.

Keep looking. When you find it, make it better. ©
