An elemental aspect of “living intentionally” is that we take time out from working through issues or constantly tending to one’s needs and simply “Be”. I think that stopping to smell the metaphorical flowers is as important a gift to one’s healing journey as effectively dealing with an illness or emotional issue. And, as such, today’s offering amounts to smelling the flowers.
