Stop: And Smell The Ocean

I took this photo awhile back, but wanted to take some time to reflect on it. July 27, 2014 (6)This photo was taken back when things in my life were going pretty well. At the time, I only took this photo because I thought it was pretty funny. I had never noticed any stop signs saying anything other than stop.  However, now this photo has more meaning behind it. A lot has happened in my life within the last couple of years and since this year started. I have had so many moments where I have had to tell myself to stop and just breathe. Can anyone relate?

This photo reminds me to stop and smell the ocean. Meaning it’s important to stop and enjoy the moment, think about the positive things, and appreciate what is around me. At times, this can be a daunting task. Other times, it comes easily. It’s a work in progress.

Now, it’s your turn. What does this photo bring up for you? What story/feeling is behind a photo like this?

 

  1. What a lovely story and so true!
