      @ Hilary and Meleah, pardon me that I did not state clearly that the list was actually compiled from the video; I just added in the quotations and a little of my perspective. Glad that both of you like it!

    Yes BK! these thing are what makes life wonderful!! So many people get caught up on this rat race to do this or that and to make it… what in the world is making it anyways? We need to stop and smell the flowers and see that life is beautiful right now right where we are in the present moment. This is the wonder of life.

      @ Eren, what you have said, it couldn’t be more true. A lot of people are so caught up in the rat race that they simply miss all the flowers in their lives.
