little things

Sometimes, you just have to drop what you're doing, cancel plans, and just play video games with your three-year-old brother.

At times, it's refreshing to have a heart to heart with a girlfriend into the wee hours of the morning, while painting until your fingers are stiff from the acrylic.

Occasionally, it's okay to just stop and appreciate the way some of your favorite books just seem to belong to one another.

Frequently, you just need to write with a pen + paper, just to connect emotionally with your piece. (For me, physically writing down something is much more engaging than typing on the computer.)

Once in a while, you need to go shopping for the perfect Easter dress with friends -- and then come back for it later when you have money. ;)

Every now and then, you just have to stop and enjoy the ordinary. Because such moments -- the little things, if you will -- not only make up life, but make it worth living.
