The other day, I was cleaning and dusting, and took out the candle and opened it up for the first time in years to smell it. It just didn't smell as bright and as fresh as I remembered it.
Okay, my point with all of this is that sometimes things in life are amazing and special, but they're also fleeting. Sometimes you have to light the candle and enjoy it then and there because the "special occasion" may never come, or you might not know it when you see it. Create the occasion and it will be special.
The next step: realizing that you're the occasion :P
