Describing life in a nutshell, this never fails to bring a smile to my face:

Finding happiness:

Things are starting to click.

I absolutely love that moment. When you are able to filter out all extraneous “noise” and focus on the task at hand, live in and celebrate the present.

That one moment of brilliance where everything harmonizes and an understanding is reached- when nothing is missing and you believe anything is possible.

I have been a part of these moments: at work, rest and play; in the living room, dining room- and the bathroom; talking with friends, family and fellow transit travelers… These are the moments that inspire me. And the wonderful thing is that they are always occurring…

There is no need to rush. Take some time.

And remember to breathe! Remember this please!


Food for thought:

Honestly, you cannot make anyone do anything that they do not want to do. People will make their own decisions.

Sometimes the effort it takes to remain neutral is exhausting.

Common sense is NOT as common as one would like to think.

All you can really do is live, laugh and learn.


A penny for your thoughts? These are mine:

Time is valuable. And respect must be earned.

Give someone a moment of your time, and your full attention and what you learn may surprise  you.
