Smell the roses...

That is what everyone wants.
Fast. Now faster. No. That's too slow.
Drive as fast as you can on the freeway.
Get your food as fast as you can from the drive thru.
Have calls that last 3 seconds.
Even that is too slow.
No one takes the time to breathe.
We are always moving.
Why not take the time to stop and ask someone how their day is?
Then actually wait to hear the answer.
Stop all the way at the stop sign.
It doesn't take that much longer.
Maybe if we'd all stop and smell the roses,
we'd actually be able to find things to be grateful for.
God created this earth for us.
Enjoy it.
We're only here for a little while.
You never know what day will be your last,
so take advantage of every day.
Just smell the roses.

Happiness is an interesting thing.
It comes and goes.
It can come faster than you can blink,
but can leave just as quick.
It comes for a short time
and sometimes stays awhile.
It makes you
tears to your eyes,
causes you to
scream for joy,
or makes you
completely silent.
Its in the eyes of a child
and the gentle touch of a grandparent.
It can change your life forever.
Anyone can have it, and anyone can give it.
The best part of happiness is that it is a choice.
You can choose to laugh at your mistakes, then learn from them.
Choose to smile and keep going,
even when you want to sit down and give up.
So choose now.
Have happiness in your life.
Or not.
Nothing is stopping you.

New Beginning

Once upon a time,
I did actually have a blog.

And I updated it.
That lasted about 5 months and then it took me about another year to update it again.
So I sort of just gave up on it.
I am not even sure how to get back onto that blog or if it still exists.
So thanks to Jessica Carlson
her blogging conversations)
here's to my new blog.
