It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 1, Page 30, Book 13
The greatest discovery of my generation is that man can alter his life simply by altering his attitude of mind.
Find something or someone unexpectedly or in the course of a search.
Become aware of a fact or situation.
It has occurred to me that every day is filled with treasures and in order to discover them, we only have to look around us. So often we whiz right by something so valuable and miss it entirely. We easily overlook a multitude of things to find simple joy in.
I've had days when I've wondered why I bother with a totally useless task when I know there are many more worthy things I like to do. I've discovered the things that bring me happiness, yet I'll wind up doing something that makes me terribly unhappy. I know I'm happiest in the winter time being warm and cozy, yet I'll force my self to go out to events where I find myself cold and miserable.
Like everyone else, I make mistakes, but I'm am discovering, that I can do better. We all know deep down there are different things that excite us and passions that we wish we had more time to explore, people we wish could spend more time with. I believe that when we focus on and spend time on what truly matters, it does truly matter.
When you recover or discover something that nourishes your soul and brings joy, care enough about yourself to make room for it in your life.
