Sometimes it's the little things that matter the most. The race for a future happiness is one it's impossible to win because however much I get, there's always something else on the horizon. The new apartment, the new back surgery, the better car, better job.... If I chase that stuff I will never be able to stop running, so today I choose to stop chasing and just lay down and smell the flowers instead. This way I can try to add small nuggets of joy to my life by appreciating what I've already got.
