Never pass up an opportunity to be curious, excited and ENGAGED with life

I love where I live because should I somehow get complacent about life all I have to do is go downtown and watch the tourists clicking pictures, pointing, smiling, and enjoying all that they are seeing around them to remind me how special it all is.

Take time every day and really look at all that is around you, from nature to the man-made, with the wonderment of seeing it for the very first time and enjoying its splendor. Marvel at what the person who made it must have gone through to arrange all the pieces in just such a manner that it now exists in that form. It all is so amazing if you stop and think about it.

Start looking at your surroundings like a tourist who has saved for years to be standing right where you are today. Be in awe of what surrounds you.
