its funny how much we take for granted. in fact there are so many things that we take for granted that should fill us with enough happiness and hope to last a lifetime. the fact that each day the sun rises bringing with it a fresh start, a beautiful sky and light to guide us. the fact that we can breathe in the air around us and know exactly where we are, whether it be by the sea, the woods, the desert, the city. the fact that it is always possible to find a small enough silence to be with yourself for a moment. the fact that when everything seems to flooding and crashing like waves all around you, when everything seems so important and so crucial and so significant, that you always have ability to retreat and realize how simple life is. you can always talk with yourself simply when you understand that. you can tell yourself the truth; the life is a beautiful gift. the only responsibly that can be defined, is to enjoy it. and when you know that its easier to take in the moments. because every single moment is one to reflect on in the present. that is one thing we take for granted the most. moments. whether they appear to be the best or the worst they are important. and how you perceive them and how you act in them changes the outcome, changes your life and changes the world. the best moments are those when you are completely alone, doing absolutely nothing. it is in those moments that you have the opportunity to check in. listen to silence or the noise around you. listen to it outside your body and within. its beautiful. its a moment. you have so much power and so much capability. there is nothing more beautiful than that because with those two possessions you can take on the world and create a beautiful life. keep the simple things in mind, reflect on them often. life is good.
