Recently, I got to thinking about how in a world where everything seems to be bigger and better, how often we forget to enjoy the little things. I used to pride myself by being someone who could truly and whole heartedly appreciate “the little things”–often, these are the big things. However, I’ve started noticing myself always reaching for more, something that someone else has, or was able to do. The fact of the matter is, we all do it. It’s so easy in a world where people can flaunt what’s great about their lives on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Vine, etc…that we forget that even the people that seem to “have it all” have problems, just like we do. I’ve been doing it subconsciously, and now I’m taking a stand to halt it. To remember the little things. My life is great and beautiful and I want to remember so that in each waking moment, I feel grateful. For no other reason, than that I should be.
What are some of the “little things” that you appreciate?
