Sometimes you have to stop and smell the roses; even if the saying is overused.

Updated on September 19, 2011

You don't have to be old to be wise.

In today's lifestyle, not many stop and small the roses. Yes, it's an overused quote, even verging on the edge of a cliché, but boy is it true. Many continue with their normal lives, perhaps frustrated at the continuous repeat of a cycle. Many stay at home and get up to nothing, and end up very disappointed; in themselves and in the world. I am only young, but to paraphrase a favourite band of mine, Judas Priest, you don't have to be old to be wise.

I believe that sometime in their life, even if for a moment, everyone should smell the roses. And feel the grass. And even sing in the rain. It might seem silly, or even time-wasting, but taking time to appreciate the small things is important in anyone's life. I'm content, and yet so young, and it's because I love life, and all of its flaws (which to me is perfection). This is why I'm going to post some images which are dear to me, and I feel are beautiful. This is a purely opinionated hub, but I hope some of you can see the beauty in these images too.
