Taking Time to Smell the Flowers

rhospiritualguide_taketimeI will not be blogging this month of August as I will be travelling for most of it. I will provide pictures, stories, information and insights about my travels upon my return!

Just to make it a bit intriguing though, one of the places I will be heading to is Salem, MA! I am taking a tour while I am there to learn more about the history of the city of Salem. Stay tuned!

Spend these next few days or rest of the month of August appreciating nature around you. Everyone says take time to “smell the flowers”; however during the summer months, I don’t know about you, but I do seem to be so much too busy. With trying to pack so much in before the winter months arrive, summer seems to slip by and I wish I had spent more time aware of my surroundings!

If you are travelling like I am, take time to be aware of your surroundings. I took a graphic design course once and one of the interesting things I learned about was how shadows create a great images. Take the time to look at shadows created by natural light. These minor things in nature make us aware of how, in a subtle way, there is beauty in nature and all around us.

Take time to really “SMELL THE FLOWERS”! I hope you all have a great rest of August. Stay safe everyone and happy!
