Smell The Roses


As has become a custom for the last couple of months, I have taken up running. I decided that at least once a week I would jog a minimum of 6km. In the beginning it was fairly difficult, but I quickly got use to it and over time started to run for time, ( 6.5km in 14min 20sec. is still my personal best). I use to get this incredible feeling of satisfaction every time I would shave a couple of minutes of my previous best time regardless of how tired I would be at the end of the run. At times I would be so tired that I would not feel like doing anything else besides lazing on the couch to rest.

I set off on my routinely jog on Monday and forgot to check the time so I decided to take it easy and just enjoy the exercise. I was surprised to notice the different shops, houses and cars on the way and could not believe that I never saw any of them. I even saw some beautiful female creatures, creatures I never noticed in all the months I was running the route. Is I got home after running 2 extra km, I found that I was not as tired as usual and I really enjoyed the run.

Life’s Good moment.
The experience reminded me of the saying, “Stop and smell the roses”
So if you trudging around daily with the sole purpose of simply surviving each day I challenge you to stop, and appreciate what you have around you. Who knows, you might discover that life is good after all.
