Thanks to my Mentor for Life/Godbrother, the mighty-talented and wise, Jeff Savage:
When you wake up in the morning, approach life as little victories. Look at the everyday events that have a positive impact on your life.
He reminds me, as I tell him my plans for the night,
Small things. Like putting the top down after work. You have a car that actually has a top that goes down. You have friends to hang out with. You have a club to listen to music at. You have memories of Austin. And you have a smile and laugh that lights up the room.
Sometimes it's such a "duh" to see what sunshine is right in front of you to grab ahold of.
