The attitude that I take is that everyday life is more interesting than forms of celebration, when we become aware of it. That when is when our intentions go down to zero. Then suddenly you notice that the world is magical.
I suppose the things that you always take for granted, that you don't even notice, are what you miss the most.

I'd done the right thing. I always did. It just would have been nice if someone had noticed.
—Sarah Dessen in Saint Anything
If we had no faults of our own, we should not take so much pleasure in noticing those in others and judging their lives as either black or white, good or bad. We all live our lives in shades of gray.
