Quotage: Stop and smell the roses

image via pinterest via substance over stuff

Sometimes I think being busy becomes a badge of honor…….that we wear proudly….because it makes us feel important and big. We are busy doing good things….busy doing useless things, busy doing everything…..

Here is a challenge: intentionally choose to not be busy…..but rather to stop…..sit….relax….savor…….enjoy.
