Life's Accents

My wonderful sister, Jess Versteeg:

I imagined the next 60 years flying by and me ‘not having the time’ to make these changes and regretting it. Let me be clear: the things that I wanted to change were accents to my life. They were the pops of colour in a wardrobe, or the jewellery to complete the outfit.

This minutiae, the pops of color, is what makes the difference in truly being content, I believe. The big things–our jobs, our relationships–are easy to target for improvement but the compilation of little things in life are what gives it pop.
