little things add up.

I've been incandescently happy lately. 

For no apparent reason. 

Just happy. 

Happy to be here, happy to be me, happy to have a cat, happy to be financially secure, happy with the people around me, happy to be learning, happy to have a supportive family, happy for job opportunities, happy to have enough to eat, happy to have a gym, happy to be a single, strong woman, happy with my language tutor, happy with the change in weather, happy to live in a non-violent society...

And then a little card like this adds to the happiness and I realize that you don't need a grand event or a dramatic occurance to be happy. 

The little good things add up. 

I hope you add up your little things and find happiness, too. You don't need some great thing to be happy. The good bits of normal days are enough when added together.

walk slow. xoxo.

Oh Jessica, I don't think you have any idea how much you mean to so many. You need to keep that sweet message close by, so when you have a bad patch, you can pull it out, look at it and know it's all worth it. It truly is all the little things that add up to a very big picture, and you have been especially placed at the very center! Keep doing your thing sweetheart. It's working! :)
