Last night hanging with some friends it hit me; it's the little things that count.
A simple sunset. Time with your family. Hanging out with your friends.
Everything that happens to us matters, no matter how big or small.
There is so much to be thankful for in everyday but far too often we get caught up caring about what not will matter in the long run over what will. There is more to appreciate when we look to the little things then when we look to the big elaborate things.
Yes, everyone loves a great big gift every once in a while, but that does not hold the meaning of life or the meaning of a relationship.
The memories that create the meaning of life cannot be bought.
Far too often we look past the little things that can mean the most. A night in with my friends or family can create more memories then anything else.
It is not what you have in your life or how many friends, but it is what you make of every situation that creates the happiness you have for everyday.
I have truly started to appreciate the little things.
Even waking up each day is something that is overlooked.
A beautiful sunset can take my breath away. A fun night with my family means more to me then anything. And a night in with my close friends is more special then a night out that you would never remember anyways.
Maybe this is a part of growing up, but I am thankful to be more appreciative of the little things that surround me everyday then searching and yearning for something that won't matter in the long run.
