Life talks to us all the time, if we would listen. It talks to us when our bodies are tired and we need to slow down and rest. It talks to us when we go through the motions of life without any real joy or meaning - reminding us to pay attention and cherish every breath. Sometimes it even talks to us through the man or woman at the grocery store who's words suddenly light up for us in a special way, reminding us of some important lesson we've been trying to learn or remember. It hints at what's important in life by reminding us to pay attention, love ourselves and our loved ones, and give meaning to our lives by caring about the quality of our work, creativity, and play. It reminds us that we are the creators of our lives, and we are the ones that improve the quality of our lives by our appreciation of every moment - big and small.
