YOLO—You Only Live Once . . . or do you? YOLO is a buzzword these days, reminding us to take chances and make the most out of our lives, but I think we might be missing the point. We don’t live only once. We live every single day! And there’s no limit to how much we can live and enjoy our lives.
I was reminded this past week about how important taking time off can be—and that we should enjoy the simple pleasures in life. I’d let my crazy schedule get the best of me, only to realize that I was not taking any time for myself to simply “be.” Seeing how frazzled I was, a good friend pointed out to me, “Shari, if you never take time to stop and smell the roses, you’re missing half the fun in life!” The truth of her words rang in my ears, and I suddenly remembered the importance of taking time for ourselves.
