🌹 Stop to smell the roses...but not the neighbors... YOURS! 🌹
🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿🌿 🌹Take a moment to see what you have in your hands TODAY. See it...and I mean REALLY see it! 🌹In this world it is incredibly easy to lose sight of what we have by thinking of what you don't.
🌹It's so easy to look at the neighbors rose bush and lose sight of the beauty and essence of our own.
I have been there. Wanting more - convinced I needed more!!! The reality is that I had MORE than enough. I simply wasn't looking at it!!!! 🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯
I was too busy looking at the neighbors rose bush. I was too busy looking at the grandeur of someone else's blessing that I didn't see the beauty of my own. I was missing out on the sweet fragrance of what I had. The life that was already in my hands.
Since, I was blessed to have this eye opening moment... happiness, contentment, and a thankful spirit seem to come more naturally. I realized that although the neighbor has some beautiful roses...the bouquet on my table is just as captivating!
And it's mine! I don't have to wish I had it, or stick my head half way out the window to get a glimpse of it. It's already mine.
So, now, instead of coveting my neighbors rose bush I water my own bouquet.
Want to know the best part?
It's flourishing! ....and so am I. 🌹💖🌹💖🌹💖🌹💖 #roses #bouquet #thankful
