Never Stop

I wrote something one day that began with “Never stop smiling.” A few days passed and I went back to reread it and it seemed different this time, like somebody else had written it for me. I didn’t realize that I was actually writing this piece specifically for myself. Sometimes I forget to smile and enjoy the greatest, simplest, purest pleasures of life. I have cheated myself of some of the most amazing things that life has to offer me. I have allowed myself to be consumed by stress and expectations and worry that I simply looked past all of the wonderful things in my life that are happening around me. So here is a little piece of advice not only for me this time, but for you: never stop smiling. Never stop appreciating. Never stop believing. Never stop loving; loving you, loving life, loving this beautiful journey that we are all on together.
