Last time I checked,
this beautiful thing called life isn't a race,
cause if that's the case,
i'll take last place.
Because along the way,
every single day,
I've experienced the small things,
that in reality take up the most room in the heart.
I've taken the time to master the art,
of nurturing friendships -
that like flowers -
need to be fed with love and support.
I've taken time to enjoy the sunset,
with not a single fret,
because the view was one of a kind.
It's ok to not be okay.
I've taken the time to inspire,
what really makes someone happy.
Making someone smile,
so big that you can see it from a mile,
has got to be one of the best feelings.
But so often people don't take the time to care.
I've found that balance is the secret,
to living a life that feeds your soul,
allowing you to grow.
once in awhile,
take some time out,
and without a doubt,
looking around at the beauty that is missed,
because everyone is focused on crossing the finish line,
is well worth it.
I hate to say it,
but none of us make it out alive,
so give yourself a high five,
and time some time out.
