Life on the run is really no fun.
Your accomplishments mean something, but what have you really done?

Sometimes you really lose when you think that you’ve won.

On your road to success you get less rest.

You forget about your family and put all of your relationships to the test.
If your life is defined by your work, then who does that impress?

Don’t forget about the little things.
Live life and learn what it really means!
Love and laugh because your time is all you have.

Let the scent of the rose hit your nose and I hope that you grasp.
Don’t let life pass you by because it goes by fast!
The future soon becomes past,

But I’ll keep hoping that you focus on making it last.

When in a hurry, true beauty goes unnoticed.

So take the time today to stop and smell the roses.
