Alive to Every Smile

There are somedays where you honestly appreciate being alive. It is in these days when the birds sing to your tune, cars part the crosswalks for you, and strangers become friendly. On this occasion a mutual end isn’t so much as he/she dumped me as friends becoming stronger. It’s life in a little child jumping about that makes you smile; it’s a perfect moment from a far away vantage point that causes a grin. It’s fuzzy sweaters, warm cookies, and a choking embrace all rolled into one. We come alive by loving everything around us; it’s the best way to know who we are.

I hate to admit this, but life really is made of rainbows, butterflies, and a good laugh.

And on the general order that I love quotes, and especially now I love everything… I’ve said it before, but I think we all have the ability to be in this elusive state of happiness. Now go on, go get it.

> “The Constitution only gives people the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself.” – Ben Franklin


I hate people that constantly censor themselves with the justification of a “requirment” of quality, life-altering work! I I hate when people refuse to write just because they don’t feel it will affect anyone. People that live just to make a splash in life disgust me. And unless you truly are that selfish person, that excuse doesn’t work for you either.

This is not to say that the point of life isn’t to try to make that splash, but rather to say that everything we do and say is drop in the pond that could lead to the next tsunami. We need to realize that no matter what we say, or what we do, someone out there is crying or laughing because of it Our words and actions are powerful! The harder you try, though, the harder it becomes to even ripple the surface. A noble cause in life is to understand that everything we say, everything we do is just the start of a wave. Everything we do and say affects someone.

Not Much, Beautiful

There’s not much to say. I suppose things are okay, but now that people know that it’s going to be that way, things will never be the same. I finally put some of Halloween party pictures in the browser. They’re really fun to look at; people, my friends, are wonderfully beautiful.

So my sister blew up the power supply on my old computer, and I finally had time to get around to replacing the whole thing. I’m at Frys, looking for the advertised special, but I can’t find it. So I settle for a “quasi-cheap, but still more than I wanted to spend” one. Little did I know, but that very unit I picked up was exactly what I was looking for, and boy, do I love sales! Ten minutes on installation time at home and we were back in business. I fixed the computer just for her to screw it up again. I love my life.
