Stop to smell the roses

Sometimes something as mundane as the commute to work can just take my breath away. This was what I got to look at as I walked to the cabinet shop on Tuesday morning.

some days the walk to work kind of takes your breath away

It’s amazing to me. Now that the stress of of trying to sell a 41 year old family business that my late father started is gone, I have been stopping to smell the roses a lot more often. Literally. Last Wednesday I took an afternoon break to run around Lake Harriet. As the rose gardens came into view my first thought was, “I need to get back to work.” After a few more paces, I decided that stopping to smell the roses on a gorgeous October day would be much more important than getting back to work. And it was totally worth it.
