Today wraps up 31 days of stopping to smell the roses. You can read past posts here. I don’t know about you, but I’m encouraged to make sure I know what the big rocks are and to put them in first.

This series has been full of teachable moments for me. I’ve been reminded that it’s okay to just sit. To sit still and not worry about what I should be doing helps me be engaged with my family and friends, helps me to take a step back from the rush of life, helps me to remember what’s important.

Just to sit and soak up the moment is probably the sure-fire best way to stop and smell the roses.

The days are long, but the years are short. I don’t want to miss them! For more short and sweet ideas on how to stop and smell the roses, to enjoy the little things in life, check out my 31 Days to Smell the Roses series.

  1. I just wanted to “stop” and let you know how much I enjoyed reading your series!

  2. I, too, have enjoyed this series….and am especially reminded that it’s okay to stop and sit today: I’m in bed with a bad neck crik and my in laws have taken my kids for the day. Add to that, only 25 days til the due date of baby #4. Sometimes you HAVE to stop! 🙂

    It’s hard, isn’t it? This sitting still. If I ever let myself do it, I let those “should be” thoughts get in the way of actually enjoying it. I’m going to work on that from now on. Whenever I hear of people who can meditate, sitting still for hours at a time, I’m in absolute awe. How do they do it?!

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
