Happiness is in the familiar


Quotable quote
Note scribbled on the inside of the notebook I carry everywhere with me.

Sometimes the familiar can get boring. Once they become distant however, you realize how much of your happiness is drawn from the comfort of what you’ve grown accustomed to.

So… thank you for Shrek everyday. Thank you for the everyday routine that puts the toddler at ease. Thank you for spaghetti everyday. Thank you for the daily (hourly even) iPhone tug-of-war with the toddler. Thank you for the messy meals. Thank you for the to-do list that never gets fully ticked off. Sometimes these drive me crazy, but the truth is I find comfort in them. These are some of the things that are most important to me. Time with the boy, the thrill of burning the midnight oil on those to-do list items.

What everyday familiar things do you find much happiness in?
