We live in such frantic times, moving from one thing to the next without really concentrating on anything in particular. Our minds become restless – yet we have so many opportunities to be generous and inspire each other. Today’s post is all about “smelling the roses”, and how the birth of my son, Kingston taught me to appreciate just how precious life is. When Kingston was born everything had changed. As a new parent, you learn that the cliché everyone tells you is actually true: It goes so fast. My son will turn 4 this year and I cannot help but be astounded by this simple fact. I get teary eyed just thinking about it because I don’t want this experience of raising Kingston to race by. I want it to drag on, deliberately, definitively, and perhaps forever.
I want to enjoy being a mother. Being a mother is the BEST life has to offer. It has taught me to live my life with compassion; to be kind to myself so I can be kind to others.
So, let’s make today count! Let us stop, and “smell the roses” together, as they say, because right now is the only time we will ever have. Let’s make the most of it.
Have a great weekend.
