Enjoyment vs. Denial

It’s OK to just enjoy the moment. A beautiful sunset, the laughter of a friend, the taste of a fresh-baked cookie, the feel of sun shining on your hair after a long cold rainy spell, a favorite song on the radio, a good book, a ladybug in the garden, a grilled-cheese sandwich, the sound of a passing train, the scent of sun-dried sheets. Enjoying the moment doesn’t mean you’re in denial about the state of the world.

(This is a note to self. And I’m posting it here in case anyone else needed to hear it too.)
