Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out. – Anton Chekhov
When called upon, the average man can often rise up to the occasion when necessary. However, it is the seemingly mundane course of life that can beat one down and cause one to go into a long, slow fade. Is it not the wise man however who understands that every moment of this ‘mundane’ life can be realized for what it is, an opportunity. By being mindful, we can be full of wonder and appreciation. By realizing what is, we can act and destiny can be altered.
