The Simple Things in Life

Life is so, so sweet

I was originally going to make this long intricate post about things. But Calvin describes it so well. It’s amazing how so many people aspire to do great things, or achieve a specific goal. Not that either one is a bad thing in it’s own right, but the majority of the time it’s the simple things that really make an impact on your life. I guess I’ve had plenty of time this summer to consider my future and what kind of things I would like to happen, but I’ve come to the reality that there’s honestly not that much I want in life to be happy. I honestly don’t care if I have a high paying job, I just want to do something where I can be happy. I would love to have a wife and a family someday as well, someone that I enjoy spending time with. Kids that I can watch grow up and play with them. I don’t think that’s too much to ask for, is it?

It’s like the Peanuts comics, “Happyness is…” It’s the simple things that really make life special. Spending time with friends. Enjoying a hot (humid if you’re in Alabama) summer day outside. Exploring some place new that you’ve never been before. Sometimes I wish I could go back to being 10 when life felt so much simpler than it did now.
