smell the roses

garden rose
{we received a shipment of these garden rose stunners for a special event this weekend. I promptly stole one for a small vase on my desk. All the better for stopping and smelling.}

When you’re surrounded by beautiful things every day, it’s easy to become a little jaded to their loveliness. I imagine the same goes in places like bakeries, though I can’t believe cupcakes and fudge frosting could ever lose their appeal.

I’m trying to make an effort to spend more time in the present, instead of always thinking a few steps ahead. To stop and smell the roses, if you’ll pardon the obvious florist pun. In my heart of hearts, I want to be the person that puts the art/love/passion first and lets all the technical stuff follow suit.

While we’re on the subject, here are a few recent posts from around the interwebs that I’m particularly inspired by:

 

I love Sydney’s perspective on being ‘busy’, and overcoming our self-imposed overloading.

The next time I’m in a creative rut, I’ll remember Elsie & Emma’s advice that good ideas take time.

I really appreciate Kendi’s thoughts on being true to yourself within the parameters of your blog.
