I loved the words of the above movie clip. In fact, when it was over, I rewound it and listened to it multiple times. It made me think. When I seem to "lose myself in routine and constancy", here are some of the little nuances I seem to remember feeling make it all worth it:
Freshly squeezed orange juice from my husband to wake me up on my birthday.
Cleaning out my email and finding pages and pages of emails from my best friend.
A moving story, such as this one by Liz.
Years ago, the little old black man who drove the shuttle at the airport in LA. I had been having a rough time then, but somehow his smile and contagious attitude started to change my outlook and somehow made it worth being up at 4am. I still remember feeling like he was just what I needed right then.
Sarah always thinking to ask how my back was, even without me saying anything.
When a stranger commented on my beautiful baby on my way out of the hospital after delivery and it was the first time the whole thing sunk in and I started crying.
The notes 10 years ago when my dad died from really unexpected people. I still remember them.
Random pieces of mail from my mom with no included explanation, such as the news article entitled, "Raw Egg Yolk Cures Acne."
Just to name a few. I'd love to hear the other subtle things that have made people happy!
