Hello! I’m Diana Scarborough, an accountant/mother by day, and a writer/book lover by night. I have learned over the course of my increasingly fast-paced years, that happiness is not something that happens to us. It is not delivered to our doorstep with a nice red bow on top, just waiting to be opened and enjoyed. Of course life has its surprising moments that utterly grip us and take our breath away. But, for the most part, I believe happiness is something we make. Fulfillment is something we enjoy when we learn to stop taking the little things for granted. If we constantly brush off all of life’s tiny little beauties because they are ordinary, unimportant, or we’re simply too busy to bother, then we will surely see the color fade out of life and happiness will be hard to come by. Because, let’s face it, if we wait for the eventful, the enormous, the extraordinary to bring us joy, those moments will be few and far between. My two sons have been amazing teachers of this lesson. To them, everything is new. Everything is amazing. The tiniest things that we as adults have come to see as commonplace, can make them quiver with excitement and curiosity. And, as their primary playmate, I too am learning to be excited with them. To share in their enthusiasm rather than squelch it. And, in some ways, they have become more of an influence on me than I have on them. It is my goal in writing this blog to share that influence with any who care to read. To find little lights of inspiration and beauty in everyday life and highlight them for myself and others to take notice. To help create happiness. To appreciate today the things that we’ll remember tomorrow.
