It’s that time of year when families are in full throttle . Running with the kids to games, school concerts, plays, recitals. The weeks blend into each other until Summer vacation hits.
It’s also one of the most beautiful times of the year. The trees & bushes are in full bloom. They are decked out in glorious colors. Each a little bit prettier then the other. It can be a wonderful inspiration to anyone that opens their eyes and just enjoy the beauty. Even if it’s only for a moment.
Live in that little moment because, like a magnificent Magnolia flower, the moment will not be there for long.
I was talking to a client the other day who was about 20 minutes away from our home town. She said she was driving along and thought how beautiful all the green and flowering buds looked. She spent the whole time driving home admiring each town as she passed through it. When she pulled into her drive way she realized how beautiful her road was. She couldn’t get over how she had missed the beauty on her own road, until she took a minute to really look.
So if your life is spinning at a fast pace try to step off the merry- go-round for just a second and admire all the new life that is popping up.
Up here in the Northeast our growing season is not long. We learn to appreciate what we have before the next season begins. Slow down and smell the flowers.
