But you gotta keep in mind that you need to

see the world in bold colours.
enjoy your fantasy, reject their reality.
take a risk for your own sake.
love with every fiber in your soul.
smile often.
laugh even more.
be content with what you have.
but strive for a higher level.
watch a sunset now and then.
buy a 4 year old some ice cream, they deserve it!
look at the stars.
hug someone everyday, you both need it.
enjoy every day.
tell someone thank you.

we all know the story called The King's Chessboard by David Birch. It is about a king that wanted to reward his wise man. The man didn't want anything, but the king insisted. So the wise man decided he wanted a grain of rice on the first square of the chessboard, and he wanted the amount doubled every day for each of the 64 squares. A grain of rice is tiny but collectively it adds up to a lot.

So finally remember to find meaning in the little things. They are more important than you think.

Receding Footsteps.

I'll watch the sky change colours. Fading evenly across the sky, receding into the night. Darkness advancing, creeping with shadows against my feet. Sitting right where you left me, watching the world silently. Stars twinkle in the last of the sunlight. Shrouded in silence I let my thoughts surround me with the coming of the night. A smile on my lips, remembering you sitting with me. Fingertips aligned, secret whispers filling the silence of the coming night. Sitting right where you left me, I watched you walk away silently. Not moving until you were long out of sight and longer still.

I never hang up first, I'm never the one to let go. I just watch you walk away and hope you'll think of me, as I think of you tonight.

But then you'd turn back and smile, for one last wave goodbye. Stormy eyes seem to shine, the sky radiates vibrant tones, and I know peace is mine tonight. The world seems brand new, hearts beat quicker still. It's never as simple as we once knew, drenched in thoughts we're swimming tonight. But your smile and wave let me know everything will be alright.
