Life is...

It was one of those days when nothing seemed to be going right. After a tough day, I was lying in bed thinking there is hell of a lot more crap in life than goodness. There is so much in life I can do better without.

I started making a mental list of things in my life I could do better without, but somehow thoughts drifted off to doing just the opposite - making a counter-list of things that I just cannot give up. The list made me realize that the little goodness and beauty in life is worth it all. How on earth can I miss seeing my dog do something totally ridiculously funny ; or watching a movie at night at home with good friends and oily chinese food ; or that tiresome day-long journey to India, every minute of which is spent envisioning the moments when I would see mom and dad waiting at the airport ; or seeing that hug emoticon from my man over a chat window exactly when I need it - the kind that makes me burst out crying in relief....

... and I went to sleep, thinking life is good.
