Great story on the weather channel the other day . A guy gave up his car for a week and walked everywhere . It took him ages to walk to work and back , also had a long trek for quite a while to get to an important meeting . I,m sure they said he had a two hour round trip to work , that,s what got my attention . The thing I loved was them showing him stopping to smell the tiniest of flowers as he walked to work . The presenter said ,'' this gives a literal meaning to the age old saying of stopping to smell the roses '' . Very inspiring to hear something that gives us a new perspective ,, maybe we could start with a day of doing something quite different from the usual routine .
