It's the cool autumn breeze that smells of earth and new beginnings. It's that one country song that makes me feel nostalgic. It's the ominous clouds and heavy air before a thunderstorm. It's that moment of bittersweet emotion after reading the last word of a really good book. It's watching the sun slant in through my bedroom window and create a mural on my wall. It's rolling my windows down as we near the shore, and breathing in the salty air. It's hearing my mom's contagious belly laugh. It's that tired-happy feeling after a productive day. It's when the Ferris wheel pauses and I'm at the very top, admiring the lighted world below. It's the lump in my throat and tears in my eyes during a heartfelt prayer. It's my niece wrapping her chubby little arms around my neck and putting her head on my shoulder. It's laughing uncontrollably with my best friend at the grocery store, and not caring what people are thinking. It's lying on the trampoline and watching the stars on a summer night. It's the adrenaline running through my veins after a run. It's listening to the sound of rain pounding on my window as I'm tucked under the covers.
It's the little things that impact me in the biggest way.
