Experiences that can alter your life occur on a daily basis. If the ocean kisses your toes just right you can decide, in that moment, to never allow stress to overwhelm you again.

There are many things/experiences in your life that have the potential for shifting your perspective or changing your life completely but often times we find ourselves stuck in the whirlwind of life just going and going without ever stopping to smell the roses or get our feet wet. Next week I want you to make note of everything that you see/hear/touch/smell/taste that is significant and I want you to allow it to act as a catalyst for your growth. If you’re striving to be better today than you were yesterday then smelling the roses is necessary…it could end up giving you a greater appreciation for your own life.

Thanks for joining me and Happy Free-Thinking Friday!! I’ll see you on Self-Love Sunday!
