"If you don't take the chance to live life, what can you say at the end of it?"
~Naveen Andrews

I like to think that the best way to view life is in the present with hope for the future and reminisce the happier moments of one's life. Not dwelling on the bad or stressing for the trials, but looking for ways to enjoy every minute of life. Looking for ways to enjoy even the not so pleasant things.

Life is a compilation of the little things. First kisses and first dates. Family dinners. Laughing so hard with your friends it takes minutes to recover then looking at one another and sending yourselves back into endless giggles. Procrastinating homework until this last minute. Soup on a rainy day. Spontaneous late night drives up the canyon. Hot chocolate on a Sunday night. The buzz of a bee on a hot summer's day. Science classes and math homework. Kids running around playing night games. Speeding tickets and drivers ed. Awkward middle school couples. Field trips that cease to exist upon entering high school. The scent of your crushes shampoo. Midnight movies premiers and over salted popcorn. All these things that make up life. These things that we overlook when we're running back and forth all day, when we really should stop and smell the roses.
