Living Big by Appreciating What is Small
June 13, 2016 7:05pm CST
Happiness is always chased by many by hoping for things that they do not have. Some people are blinded by the belief that happiness can be attained completely by acquiring big wealth, by winning the lottery, or by being married to a millionaire. Some people linked happiness to money most especially those who are struggling every day to have foods on the table. Although money can bring us happiness, it is just a temporary one. As I journey through life, I have realized that there are too many things people take for granted. Simple care from loved ones, roof in our heads, foods on our table, fresh air produced by plants and trees, complete body parts. I can say that there are too many simple things to mention that if only we'll focus on it every day then we can feel complete and blessed. Photo is taken during my trip to Hong Kong.

Yeah.. we have so many things to be thankful for. Small and simple things that should be appreciated. But let's accept the fact, that we cannot live without money. We cannot have those material things that we need without money. So all I can say is, appreciate what you have. May it small or big. Be thankful for everything that you received. And continue exerting effort to earn money.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts Cristy! We do need money but if a person's world fully revolves around money, then I think it is not good. You are right about being thankful for everything. Practicing gratitude always is a good thing.

@annierose I feel the same. I am myself downsizing throwing out all my extra things! Even throwing things out i haven't used in years!I am trying to read all my books and do my book on the computer so that i don't have to have extra paper around, but will do my research on paper!
