I am willing to acknowledge….there are things in my life that do not smell quite right.What does your life smell like? At first it may seem like an unusual question. On second thought, the question will probably reveal to you some things you may have overlooked. If you were to take a whiff of your life, which response mechanism would be activated? A gag reflex? The laugh bottom? A sign of relief? Or unspeakable joy? If you wee passing by your life, what would you smell? A bed of roses? Or a gym locker full of sweaty socks? Perhaps some of Grandma’s home cooking? Or is it more like popcorn that has been left in the microwave too long? If you were to throw open the front door of you life, what would hit you in the face? The scent of Carpet Fresh or the stench of a moldy basement? The aroma of a cake that’s just about done? Or the smell of trash that needs to go our? Most of us are very familiar with the way our lives look. Few of us have ever taken the time to make sure that our live smell as clean as they loo

Quite often, what our ears, eyes, and hands iss our nose can detect. The sense of smell is also quite useful because it evokes memories. With a whiff of something, you can be thrown back into a memory of something that happened, how it happened and whether or not you liked what happened. From there, you are motivated to encourage or discourage the same thing from happening again in your life, Most important, the sense of smell evokes feelings. If something in your life doesn’t smell right you will not feel right. If you don’t like what you feel, you know it is time to clean up?Until today, you may only have been concerned with the way you life looks. You may have ignored certain things you heard or saw, but you cannot ignore a smell. Just for today, be devoted to sniffing around your life. Be on the lookout for rotting things you need to discard and fragrant things you can put on display.Today I am devoted to sniffing around all aspects of my life?
