It's the little things!

Isn't it though? It's the little things that either make you exremely glad to be alive or it's the little things that drive you completely insane.

A friend of mine was over the other day and I was showing her some money that I'd brought back from my world wide travels. As I was digging through my drawer and reminiscing about my trip, I ran across a little pocket notebook that had been water stained, crumpled, and to the ordinary person might seem like something I need to 3 point into the nearest trashcan. But inside was a list that I wrote down while I was living in Jamaica. The days there were rainy but also filled with a lots of personal growth for me.

On one of the pages, which are getting harder and harder to turn was written:
