STOP AND SMELL THE ROSES!February 27, 2015 - Author: Omonioboli - 35 Comments
‘Tomi have you booked our flights?’ ‘Gozi did you finish your homework?’ ‘Aunty Grace did buy beans when you went to the market?’ ‘Mr Seyi, hope you bought fuel in the car!’ ‘Oya get the luggage in the car. Hope I haven’t forgotten my iPad’. In all of this madness, when do we have time to actually stop and smell the roses?
If you are like me, then you get what I am saying. I find it so difficult to relax. Even after the day’s done and I am dead tired, instead of going straight to sleep, I stay awake going through my day and plotting the next day or the next week! You know the verse in the bible that says ‘sufficient for the day is its trouble’? I think that verse was written for me! I should make a bracelet with the verse and wear it all the time as a constant reminder to relax! I just don’t know how people fall asleep in two minutes. I wish with all my heart that I could do that. Is it something that can be learned? If you know any relaxation tricks and tips, please feel free to use the comment box to share with me. I promise to try all of them and let you know which works. I sincerely hope something works because we all absolutely need to make time to relax and enjoy the little things. At the end of the day, it’s the memories we create that counts. No one ever remembers their work or project deadlines on their dying bed. They only remember the times they spent with their loved ones or regret the times they didn’t. We should always find time to create beautiful memories with our loved ones (believe me, I am speaking to myself). And if we don’t rest properly, we find we can’t relax and just enjoy the little things. I find that I get irritable and just bark orders or get upset when I feel someone is being slow around me. Bottom line is, life is too short to waste it jumping from one place to the other without stopping to smell the roses! Don’t forget to let me know your thoughts. I read all the comments, I love them, keep them coming! Let’s keep it real! Hugs and kisses…
