“You Can Still Smell The Roses and Be On A Mission….”

Indie Arie said it best. You CAN still smell the roses and be on a mission towards something great, something amazing. We all have goals and dreams for ourselves and our life. But, as we are striving, succeeding, and charging forward towards our vision, we MUST remember to smell the roses. They are all around us, constantly there to offer a snippet of the beauty in this life. Indie’s song, “Beautiful Day” is one brilliant compilation of wisdom and inspiration. The following is an excerpt of her song:

“Early in the morning

It’s the dawn of a new day

New hopes new dreams new ways

I open up my eyes and

I open up my mind and

I wonder how life will surprise me today

Early in the morning

It’s the dawn of a new day

New hopes new dreams new ways

I open up my heart and

I’m gonna do my part and

Make this a positively beautiful day”

I especially love this concept of “I wonder how life will surprise me today”. What a spontaneous and wonderful way of looking at life. Waking up each day and thinking about how you might be surprised by what life is going to offer you. It is only when we become open to the possibility of wonder in our lives that we will notice it.

Early in the morning, It’s the dawn of a new day, new hopes, new dreams, new ways”- Indie Arie. Perfectly worded. Are you taking the time each morning before you start your day to get in touch with what it is that you want your day to look like? Are you stressed and hurried or are you present and intentional? I believe that we have the power to create any experience we want in our life-everything from our hopes and dreams to our day-to-day encounters. While we can’t control everything that happens, we always can control how we react to it. The choice is ours. And we can choose to have a beautiful day.
