A rewarding, fulfilling life comes not from the large accomplishments but in the small, everyday steps and decisions that we take. A beautiful work of art is not made up of a spectacular mountain in one corner, a vibrant sun in another, a beautiful meandering stream down the center, and empty space between them all. The beauty is in the cohesion, intention of the brush strokes, and view when you step back and take it in as a whole. Do not let your ambition for great moments and landmarks overshadow the opportunity you have for greatness everyday. Live each moment as though you are completing your life's masterpiece.
We are all a product of choices. Each time you touch paintbrush to canvas you have an opportunity for greatness.
