Lately, I've been so so stressed out with everything. Everything just adds up to one big stress attack - I'm in my final semester of grad school, the economy sucks, my employer is not doing very well, I might get laid off, money is tight, my Nani isn't doing very well, etc. etc. etc. All of this stress lately has helped me come to realize how important the "little things" are. I start stressing about something as trivial as money or school - but then I look at the beautiful mountains or think about spending some quality time with Bwandon and everything else just gets pushed into perspective. What is life REALLY all about? Bank accounts? Thesis projects? Government? Or is it about love...happiness...family...friends...laughter...good food...good talks...great experiences. Take a deep breath. Look to nature. Life is good.
