The little things...

Earlier this week Laura and I were sitting around talking and planning out our week, and in the blink of an eye we got ourselves all the way to the weekend.  We pretty much knew what we were going to be doing every hour of every day.  The sad part is the answer that we went through didn’t really change week to week.  We could have had the same conversation for the past year.  I’m sure this is pretty much common place for most of us.  Unless you’ve got some exotic job that takes you to the ends of the earth, things probably get monotonous.  Hell, I’m willing to bet that traveling to the ends of the earth could get monotonous as well right?  Shortly after having this conversation I walked into the office and outside the window I saw the leaves on the tree turning an amazing shade of red.  It was really cool to see.  The picture here doesn’t really do it justice, but it was amazing.  That’s when I figured it out.  For me at least, the cure for the day to day monotony is in the beauty that’s all around us.  These leaves aren’t going to be like this forever.  Seamus(call back to yesterday’s post) isn’t going to be around every day to entertain me.  There’s really cool things happening all around us.  They don’t have to be earth shattering, they just need to be noticed.  That’s what makes each day different, and amazing.
