It occured to me today that happiness is sometimes not in the big things in life. Real happiness may be in the little things that we encounter throughout our day. Little moments of lightness, of pleasure, of fun.

It wasn't an eventful day and neither was it really a notable one but as i sit here writing this, i somehow feel satisfied. That got me thinking. Somehow i felt as if my good feeling had to be justified. It's then that i hit me, nothing big had happened but many little things had. I tried to recall each time i laughed today, each time i smiled (even the slightest bit), each time i felt happy. And i surprised myself at how many "happy moments" i had. It's a pity taht so much of life gets swept up in the normality of things.

Song of the day: More Than Fine by Switchfoot



..it's in the little indulgences we allow ourselves


..it's in the secret daydreams we keep inside


..it's in knowing that somebody somewhere cares


..it's in the little things in life


After all, it's the little things that finally make up the big picture...

We tend to take these little things for granted don't we? It's a perenial shortcoming of mankind I guess.
