Sometimes I just don’t notice.

I don’t notice all the good, all the simple joys, all the smiles.

Some days, the complaints roll more quickly off my tongue than the praise. The day’s outtakes play back, instead of the day’s highlight reel. All that isn’t is easier for me to see than all that is.

But today I made the decision to notice. To appreciate. To smile.
