Stop & Smell the Roses

We live incredibly busy lives.  We are always doing something or going somewhere. 

For most of us, our lives are also so fast-paced that we barely get to complete an activity and enjoy it before we are moving on to the next activity. 

We are plugged in constantly to social media websites like Facebook or Instagram, or Googling information that we want to know, or we're watching our favorite TV or movies.  It's almost impossible to keep up with the quick pace of the news.  And do we really want to, when the news media is constantly bombarding us with horrific stories of violence or salacious gossip about the lives of a handful of famous people. 

It's so easy for us to lose meaning in our lives if we get caught up and swept away by all of our doings, all of our wants, and comparing ourselves with others.  

Stay focused on each moment that you have with your children.  Appreciate their uniqueness and watch them growing and changing with a sense of awe and respect for their differences.  Family time is so important, even just sitting together not doing "anything" is actually "doing" so much in terms of giving children a sense of security, feelings that they are loved just for being born, and can create feelings of warmth and closeness which can be treasured by everyone as time goes on.

Thanks a lot a great deal to do this perfect report. I want to inform you of Youtube . com. Vimeo held temporarily evaluated this include in Will just last year with very little further data because of its rollout. Rrt had been also constrained only for several buyers who have been an element of YouTube's evaluating undertaking. This period Youtube . com has only selected Canada for this rollout on this highlight under a new Sharing tab. The idea lurking behind the You tube online messaging have could be to promote members to remain during the YouTube mobile app for posting and conversing on the particular videos, and not have to key between other apps. The revolutionary in-iphone app messaging provide is set to take on Facebook's online video media customer service where you may provide feedback, like, talk about, respond to commentary and not to mention privately readily share video clips with others.
