The old adage is true: Sometimes you DO have to stop and smell the roses to truly appreciate life.
No matter your religious or spiritual background, the one reality between all mankind remains the same: we are here to seek happiness for ourselves and to share between each other.
After having an amazing weekend spent with friends and family, I recognized that deep happiness from within — and wanted to stop and embrace it before I let the mania of life take it along for its [very fast] ride.
Slow down, take a breath, and count your blessings. It really works [and feels great].
