At the front entrance of my building, there is a beautiful Daphne plant that blooms once each year (to my knowledge). It smells so incredible that friends have told me they stop to smell the plant when they're in my neighborhood. Each time I pass by the plant, I feel a sense of calm and a moment of appreciation for the present, aware of the natural beauty surrounding me.
This week - take a moment to pause life and appreciate something small - a beautiful sunrise, the sound of children laughing, the smell of a home cooked meal, or a hug from a loved one. I promise, it will help you get through the week!
