Roses| Stop and smell them!
When I attended high school, so much of my daily focus was on doing class assignments, participating in club activities, and trying to stay active in school sporting events. When I attended college, my routine included a similar rigor. While in college, I remember daydreaming of how nice it would be to have more me time once I graduated, and how my busy schedule would taper down. That has never happened! My daily schedule is busier than it has ever been. I have accepted that busy is always going to be a part of my life. However, I have learned how to make time in my schedule, just for me, to do the things I enjoy. I enjoy long jogs by myself, movie nights with my husband and children, Saturday lunches with my sisters, Sunday brunches with my girl friends, and smelling roses every day of the week.
