Perusing through social media, I came across a post that didn’t catch my attention. Wow. Big surprise.

The gist of it was something we’ve heard a million times and therefore my brain categorized it as familiar and moved right along. What was it, you ask? Umm...something like

smell the roses,

be present,

take a moment,

You know. You’ve heard it.

To my surprise, something about the post stuck with me later in the day. I wish I would have saved it so I could properly give credit to the author and muse of this newsletter.

I’m now realizing that the reason it stuck with me was because the terminology used was different. The way it prompted and described the fleeting moments of everyday joy had new words attached to it. Since I can’t remember exactly what it was, I’ve decided I need to give this lingering thought some attention because it’s just not letting me go.
