"This is my wish for us today -
May we both forget the disappointments of our yesterdays, long enough to experience the joy of just being alive and strong. May we be at peace with ourselves and find contentment in small things. May we cherish the beauty we have found in each other and curse not the courses that keep us apart. I wish you love, always."
The sun is shining, dew glistens in the spiders’ webs and a soft breeze brushes my skin. The day’s possibilities loom large ahead and yet I am sad and a part of me aches. Such is the spirit of mankind I suppose, and I will forge ahead till its end. May I be grateful for the gift of yet another day to love and be loved.
"For most of life, nothing wonderful happens. If you don’t enjoy getting up and working and finishing your work and sitting down to a meal with family or friends, then the chances are that you’re not going to be very happy. If someone bases his happiness or unhappiness on major events like a great new job, huge amounts of money, a flawlessly happy marriage or a trip to Paris, that person isn’t going to be happy much of the time. If, on the other hand, happiness depends on a good breakfast, flowers in the yard, a drink or a nap, then we are more likely to live with quite a bit of happiness."- Andy Rooney (via kvtes)
