As usual driving back from work, I listened to the English section of the local radio station. I was mesmerised by the beautiful songs on air. Furthermore, the Dj was so bubbly talking on many things. Before signing off, he was saying, "In the journey of life, do not forget to stop and smell the flowers."
"Smell the flowers", that is the saying I like most. We often hear people say, "Go out, smell the flowers". I find that it is kind of inspirational saying it to someone who might be feeling down over unforeseen circumstances that had happened in his/her life.
As we all know, literally, it is not the act of holding a flower and smell it. It is more like an encouragement, reminder or motivation for everyone of us to take a moment off and enjoy the day. For some of us, the hustle bustle of life might have taken its toll on our lives, why not free our minds by going out and smell the flowers. Grab the wonderful moment even for awhile for we might not be able to enjoy such moment again. No matter how busy we are, just stop for awhile and smell the flowers.
