I have found that it is indeed important to take time.
Time to look.
Time to listen.
Time in general.
When you take time to enjoy, everything just seems to fall right into place.
I suppose my grandma's saying "spilled milk isn't as dense as honey" is truer than we'd like to believe. If you whine over little things, you are going to have a heck of a time with something dramatic.
I always believed in the idea that the grass is always greener on the other side, but it's not true.
Right now, I can't think of anywhere else I would want to be except for right here, where I am. Because it's perfect.
Stop wishing something was different, because in an abstract view, it is.
People who expect something spectacular, will never be content.
Stride isn't a bad thing, it's just not relevant when you know that nothing will ever be perfect.
I think that I have finally learned, to just go with the current. I have been spending so much time attempting to make a point, show opinions just to cause a thought, and make a difference in a mind set, I haven't even thought to look away from the big picture, and in the end - it's key.
