My most honest, real smile in a long time was with you. The funny thing is, I was aware of it the moment it spread across my face. I felt silly (with the tooth missing and all, plus my family makes fun of my smile; I am crazy self conscious), then I saw you smiling back at me, & I forgot about everything except you.
This hit home several months ago for me. Just because something's going to take a long time doesn't mean you shouldn't bother with it. Start now, time will pass anyway. And who cares if it fails. Move on and try something else.
