So much laughter that it eventually ceases to even be a sound; you’re just both sitting there rocking … More It’s The Little Things
Open your eyes and look around, What is it that’s got you feeling so down? Worry? Anger? Life’s becoming a bore? Well for the next 30 seconds just think: what am I grateful for?

Me, me, me. My life is so awful, everyone else around me is moving ahead, reaping benefits, being happy, while I’m stuck here like a little rain cloud.
