"we do not change as we grow older; we just become more clearly ourselves."
"the two most important days in your life are the day you are born, and the day you find out why." -mark twain
"make your life your masterpiece."

Every girl needs those sweet nothings that make her day.
For me, it’s the simple things,
Like receiving a smile from a friend,
Eating craisins on the porch,
Strumming my guitar,
Listening to Owl City in the hot tub,

Hearing perfect words spoken by people I admire,

Singing at the top of my lungs,

Bursting into random laughter at a memory,

Meeting women who touch the moon and assure me I will, too,

Tanning in a corn field,

Chilling on my bed with my favorite girls in the world,
Jogging in the pouring rain,
Brushing my teeth,
Watching shooting stars,
Holding hands with a boy I’m falling for,

Laughing so hard I cry,

Playing the piano,

Writing my heart to the page,

Breaking a sweat,

Catching a snowflake on my tongue,
Capturing moments in time,
Getting wrapped in a hug by somebody I love,
Inhaling warm cookies and milk,
Doing things someone said I couldn’t,
Studying the crazy people in the world,

Making my friends beautiful,

Discovering something new,

Going to football games,

Remembering the happy things,
Finding myself,
Making messes,
And breathing.
These little miracles are the reasons I live,

and I don’t know if life gets better than this.

The author's comments:
Sometimes I just have bad days. I like to write to let out the emotion, and usually it turns out depressing and focuses so much on the negative parts of my life. For once, I took a step back and looked at how blessed I was. Sometimes, the simplest things are what make us happy. These are the things I love.
