Reviewing some of my recent writings I have noticed that I write a lot of questions. I think that is because I’m in a period of my life were I’m evaluating the motives, thoughts and behaviors in my life. I have realized that sometimes we are so involved in our lives, in this auto pilot mode that we tend to forget to stop and think what is behind the things we do. We know the right things to say. We know the right way to act, but sometimes we have to be honest with ourselves in terms of what is in our hearts.
I did some writing today and then I did some reading of some blogs here on WordPress. Reading through other people’s experiences in life it made me realize how many times I have just closed my eyes to my own realities and acted oblivious to my surroundings.
Today I’m challenging myself to be more aware. The daily routine has to take a halt. Smelling the roses is more than just feeling that fresh aroma in your nose, it’s also closing your eyes and getting in tune with the emotions that it provoke and the memories it brings to you. It’s time to stop going through the motions of life without living life.
