Smell the Flowers
I arrived at work at 4:30 this morning...
The stitcher wouldn't boot up properly...took to six to get it running..
At eight the first client phoned to check on progress.. wasn't happy when I informed him we were behind schedule and his job would not make the 8:30 am deadline..
I then had an argument with one of the stuff...just after one of the other staff went home sick..
Still in a foul mood from the morning's adventures I got in the car to go and get some lunch. While stopped at the lights I noticed an older gentleman walking along the road..I watched him stop..pause...lean over and smell some flowers that he was walking past...and then he carried on his way. Sometimes the smallest things speaks the biggest lesson.

Yep, it isn't the details...it is the small things that are important.ReplyDelete

you can't control things beyond your control and some things are just now worth stressing over, as long as you have done your best

We all need to stop and smell the flowers - or the open road; both are good for the soul. (Glad you got out on the bike later...consider this a comment on the latest post as well.) And even better you got to meet a like minded rider who actually knew where he was going.ReplyDelete
We were lucky that is for sure, but biking is a bit like that! And nice to hear from you to...Delete
