What is important in life? To me there are many levels you can enjoy happiness on and each has its' own ways to achieve happiness. This may sound like mumbo jumbo but let me explain. To be happy in the big picture requires happiness on these many levels. The big things, to me, are the health and happiness of my family and other loved ones. This is the base from all I do and achieve. It all starts here for me. If happiness is a pyramid this is the base. On other levels there exist the things I perceive to make me happy: a job that challenges and rewards, a house we take pride in making ours, eating at a nice restauarant every once in a while, a good cup of coffee. And these kind of go up the pyramid to the top where the many little things can add up to happiness. I get a ton of enjoyment out of potting plants. How freakin' mundane this sounds, I know, but there is just something about it I enjoy. Again, it's the little things if the big things are in order.
