Natasha,

Great and timely piece. Happiness is built on simple acts done often, that’s my takeaway.

It’s a lived in truth for me just lately. The highlights of my days are often the most simple things: taking walks with my mom. Visiting the Emus. Writing poetry. Watching old shows like they’re new.

I also make it a point to write down one thing in truly and concretely grateful for. No abstract thoughts or vague entries. If it’s a new ink pen or having hot green tea that I’m grateful for, I jot it down.

Again, thanks for the great piece!
