Post Smelling The Flowers
Smelling The Flowers
by: Mike Francis




How busy are we with our everyday life that we cannot “smell the flowers” anymore. Yes, to smell the flowers is just a metaphor, but it refers to a lot of things.

For example, we walk everyday on the same streets, near the same stores and people that we forget to watch them, we forget they are there. We do this automatically, we rarely stop to think. Just make a test and see for yourself: the big white house you walk by every day, what kind of windows does it have? What colors are they, what’s the shape of it’s roof top? Does it have a chimney or not? Mmmm, you don’t know, do you?

The thing is that we get so absorbed by our little problems that we forget to stop and see the big picture. I think this really depends on the level of living of each country. For example people from a poor country think about their immediate needs, like food , having a home, having someone that takes care of them. On the other hand people from a highly developed country start thinking about the planet needs, they want to “Save the whales” and take care of the Ozone layer, the start seeing the big picture because they don’t have pressing needs to attend to.

Why don’t you do something for yourself from now on? A friend of mine told me that every week she takes half a day for herself. That day is for relaxations, for doing something different, that she doesn’t during the week. Change your point of view, see from another perspective, try different new activities and enjoy yourself.

I promise that you will discover new sides of yourself that you never thought you had, and that you will begin to like them. Also even if it sounds strange and you say you’ll never do something like going to a museum, or visiting an exposition, drawing in the park or going to dance courses, just give it a try and then judge for yourself.

Wake up, do something with your life, don’t live in monotony and self sufficiency, there are so many things out there that you can try, that you’ll never believe how you could have missed them.
