Howdy, my name is Sonia, and I am a student at Texas A&M University. I have found that in life it is easy to get caught up between school, work, housekeeping, traveling, family, stress, loss, health, or anything else for that matter. Do we not have sufficient time for a balanced life? Or are we overcomplicating what we actually need to live a happy life? And what exactly is a happy life? So here I am, seeking to look beyond the routines that confine the minds of ordinary people. It is a quest to find the beauty in simple pleasures attainable by the average person. Within this quest, challenges are bound to arise; so I invite you to join me and share your experiences.
