A Momentary Vacation

Fall has arrived. While on vacation it is easy to realize how much more beautiful and peaceful everything is when spending time taking in the sights, sounds, smells and even tastes around us. Did you ever think you can take momentary vacations every day?

It is all a matter of being present to "the now", pausing to absorb the beauty around you and being grateful for each and every experience. The golfer Walter Hagen is often misquoted as saying “Stop and smell the roses.” What he really said was: “You’re only here for a short visit. Don’t hurry. Don’t worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.”

How much more empowering would your day be if you savored the moment and took a momentary pause to really appreciate all the beauty and sounds around you? How often have you really studied a plant, flower, bird or insect? It is all there for you to savor, even if it's only a momentary vacation.

A short pause may be just enough of a break from your daily grind to give you a different perspective on the wonders of life. Don’t wait for a traditional vacation to slow life down. You don’t need a new environment to take delight in the world around you. What can you see, smell, hear or taste that is in your space right here, right now?
