… how reading a book has the power to transport you to a whole other world.
… how being around animals makes you a more compassionate person.
… how traveling the world gives you a new life, a new identity.
… how taking photographs helps you to remember those precious moments that would otherwise be forgotten.
… how cuddling with your spouse makes you feel loved and important.
… how by simply walking barefoot on the beach, you feel connected with Mother Nature.
… how no matter what religion or beliefs you have, you breathe just like them and they bleed just like you.
… how by just watching the sun set or rise, you remember your own mortality.
… how elated you feel after a genuine laugh.
… how a deep conversation can occur with a complete stranger.
… how “family” can be those related by blood or those related by shared experiences.
… how special times are remembered by listening to the song that was playing at that time.
… how really anything can be an adventure.
… how much each and every one of us impacts the world in our own ways.
