Everyone seems to be chasing something. Money, prestige, acclamation, whatever. I think that people believe that if they get more money, prestige or acclaim, they will be happy. But I don't think that is true. I think you find joy in the little things in life. There is a reason why people say to take time to smell the roses. My kids have taught me how to look at things and just take the time to see the beauty and joy in a moment. The simple things, like a bright pink sunset.
The bills might be due, the car might need new breaks, the washing machine could totally be on it's way out, but that doesn't mean we can't take a quiet moment to stand in awe of a sunset. Take a lesson from my little ones and enjoy the little beautys all around us, I did.
