Sometimes it's good to just contemplate our lives. What is good with it, what is bad with it, what can be changed, for that matter, what should be changed or what should not be changed.

In doing so, it's very easy to be caught up in the day-to-day blahs and become burdened with all that troubles us.

I've found, hard as it is many times, that to focus on what is good in our lives, what makes life worth living is even more important. Those blessings that are so easily overlooked when you're getting hit over the head with the battle-axe called mundane life.

What makes me smile?

What makes you smile?
