    This may sound silly,

    but last night I was standing at the sink washing dishes. I was feeling a little tired and kind of spacing out. The only thought I recall going through my head was that one of these days I need to get the dishwasher looked at. I kept smelling flowers. I had forgotten about the...

    I stopped for lunch today

    and when I unwrapped my straw and tried to blow the wrapper off, it brought back memories. My kids would always pelt me with their straw wrappers whenever we went out to eat. It's those silly little small things I miss. Cherish every moment because life passes us by so quickly.

    Little Things In Life

    There's a tiny plant with what looks to be a small flower growing out of the crack in the concrete. If that isn't a metaphor or inspiration for "keep going" then I don't know what is. Something that small let me know there's a bigger picture at work here. Even the smallest...

    Sometimes it's as simple

    as hearing a thank you for making dinner....often it's the smell of the outdoors in the early morning. Before anyone is awake, just a deep breath and being saturated in the deep blue night sky. Simply amazing, and I'm greatful for each time I can experience it.

    It's important to be thankful

    for the little things. The difference between pessimism and optimism is where you decide to put your focus. https://youtu.be/DpsEYCKsXGM

    Life is an opportunity,

    benefit from it. Life is beauty, admire it. Life is bliss, taste it. Life is a dream, realize it. Life is a challenge, meet it. Life is a duty, complete it. Life is a game, play it. Life is costly, care for it. Life is wealth, keep it. Life is love, enjoy it. Life is mystery...

    Sometimes getting lost is a good thing.

    There's that brief moment when you just let go and accept that you're not in control of something for a change. In that moment the weight of the world and the pressure of life is gone and you're just left with yourself and the unfamiliar road you've uncovered. Enjoy that moment...

    Funny how life plays with you huh.

    .. happiness in this times ain't free. It cost something and how happy you are now, it'll be a complete twisted opposite of whats to come back to you. It sucks, unfair, undeserving but then life aint fair afterall isn't it?

    Little things. Life is just a series of little

    things. The difference between happiness and sadness, between caring and not caring, between love and hate, they are all just little things.

    There are fewer things in life

    that give me more pleasure than to be sat round the table with between one and three friends or relatives, having a good laugh and decent conversation over a nice dinner. Such occasions always seem to be over way too quickly, but I love it while they last.

    I appreciate .. - the moment I woke up - that I'm alive. That's not a really a little thing, is it? I do wish more people will have that moment of self awareness as they wiggle their toes, stretch their arms over their heads like a cat...as they open their eyes to the sunlight...
