"Beauty is whatever gives joy"
- Edna St. Vincent Millay
To spend your days not seeing colours, tasting sweetness, feeling love, hearing laughter and smelling roses is denying your senses of beauty.
We have lives, busy lives, full to the point overflowing at the brim lives. We are focused, driven, determined. We have our checklist that must be completed and if it isn’t then a cloud of personal failure supposedly blows in your direction.
Sensory perception goes beyond the five I mentioned above, as humans we are primary lead by the mind and we take the above for granted.
Appreciation of our ability to have multi layer experiences that give meaning, fulfilment and allows us to live in present moment awareness is a cause for celebration.
Don’t deny yourself the beauty in the present moment for life’s comparative to do list.
A wise woman once told me there is ALWAYS time to smell the roses.
And in my experience…. there is.
