Well, where do I start on this one – this is actually quite a difficult subject to put into words, but I’m gonna try my best and for some reason I just keep feeling that this should be something that I share with you guys.
Appreciating the little things isn’t always that easy. We all dream of having these big, luxurious houses and cars. To travel the world and live in the most expensive hotels. Marrying the perfect partner and having loads of money and wearing expensive brand names only.
Well have you ever stopped in the middle of your dream and just noticed who and what is around you? Really noticing who is around you and the things they do for you. Or just noticing the pretty different shades of colour from a flower. Seeing how happy your dog or cat gets when he/she sees you and how he/she actually smiles at you. The cute little note your significant other has left you that has the simple words “I love you” on it.
When you notice these things and realize how special they really are, you will feel your body fill with happiness and gratitude. How does the saying go – “The little things in life are in fact not little.” – because even though it might be the simplest, teenie tiniest of things, it makes us whole. And that is big and wonderful.
Of course there’s nothing wrong with having lots of money and living the lux life, but sometimes we tend to go through life with eye caps on. Even if you’re the poorest man on earth, there’s always something that will make you smile. Even if you’re the richest man on earth, there’s always something that will make you smile. You just have to find it yourself. You have to find that content and calm feeling you get when someone brings you a coffee or sends you a short text or just do’s something for you that’s of the littlest of efforts, but that you know that person does it from their heart.
We go through life always being in a rush, that the little things goes unnoticed. We’re afraid that we’ll miss out on that lux life we’re always dreaming of, that we forget to just sit back and breathe and look around us.
I believe that if more of us noticed these small things and appreciate and cherish them, we would all be a lot happier. Like genuinely happy.
It is sometimes difficult to just stand back a little and just notice. But doing this would make you so much more grateful and appreciative of the things you have in life.
Learn to appreciate the little things 🙂 because they aren’t all that little.
I hope you guys understand the message I’m trying to bring out in this post, it’s quite simple, but still tricky.
