I came across the following quote today and think that it is so true. A great reminder to find happiness in the everyday, to find joy in the simple things and to not take anything for granted. It also reminds us that everything is not limitless so if there are things you want to do in life, don't wait. Do them now!

"....we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well. Yet everything happens only a certain number of times, and a very small number really. How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon from your childhood, some afternoon that's so deeply a part of your being that you can't even conceive of your life without it? Perhaps four or five times more, perhaps not even that. How many more times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps twenty, yet it all seems so limitless."
Paul Bowles
