life is beautiful


{note to reader: this one of those posts where you have to sing a little song in your head while reading, because it fits perfectly. life is beautiful by vega4. It is truly one of my favorite listening pieces.}

My life is far from perfection. Serenity is something I must search for, quiet is something rare. But realizing that if I constantly lived in the surroundings I want here and there, I see how dull it would become. Reaching for something that you don't have at the moment gives you the strength overcome. It sometimes even adds a little adventure to the day.IMG_2139


Probably the most important moments to me are the silly ones. The seemingly passing happenings that turn out to be the most treasured ones. I honestly don't know how I could get through the day without that amazing function called laughter. When you really think about it, a laugh is something unique. No one teaches a baby to laugh. She grins for the first time and giggles burst out, warming hearts all around her. Laughter is contagious, it is spontaneous.
