Are you missing the beauty for the bustle?

How can we ever love the sea if we're always racing for the shore?

“We place such value on the noises of our lives, we glorify and exalt the over-popular art of always being busy. How can we ever love the sea if we’re always racing for the shore?” –Tyler Knott

Are you missing the beauty of life for the everyday hustle and bustle? Stop and… __________ [insert activity here]. Smell the roses. Sip some coffee. Reflect. Be grateful. Play with your kids. Talk to your partner. Meet a friend for lunch. Do yoga. Call your mom. 

It’s not too late.

Oh, and read this. You’ll be glad you did.

It’s a great day to be alive,

About Jaime Shine

I love to write. While most kids were playing with blocks or dolls, I was publishing magazines and newspapers – feature articles, ads, sports box scores, the whole nine yards. From promotions director to advertising roles to branding projects, I’ve always been interested in all forms of marketing. That interest blossomed into a career path and led me to open my own business, which has always been a dream of mine. And I’d love to work my magic for you.

  1. Wonderful message and photo. Humans beings haven’t learned the second word in their name – being is essential to our becoming, we are creatures born of the moment. Coincidentally, Tyler Knott took the photos for my wedding in Montana. I highly recommend TreeHouse Photography. Also, as you noticed, Tyler Knott is a gifted writer and poet. Have a wonderful day and thank you for sharing!
    Cheers,
    Tyler

    • Tyler,
      I couldn’t have said it better myself. Some people are so busy being busy, they can’t see everything they’re missing. I was fortunate to come across Tyler K. on Instagram. His pictures are beautiful, so I can imagine your wedding pictures are spectacular. Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment!
      Cheers,
      Jaime
