Appreciate what You have

March 6, 2007

Many people spend their lives searching for happiness.

In the end, some are fortunate enough to realize that it isn’t about having more, doing more, or being more.

It is about how you view what is already yours.

Look around you today, and appreciate the riches that has been placed in your life.

Even if your circumstances are troubling and your prospects slim, you can always revel in the vibrant colours of the morning sunrise or the amazing tenacity of a dandelion fighting to find its place in the sun.


When you begin to see and appreciate the richness around you, you will almost certainly find that you have a great deal more to feel hopeful about than you once imagined.

Appreciating what you have is one way to keep your hopes up.

    I’m so happy I have me, my health, my love, my family and friends around me.

    These things don’t have price tags on them, but they are what defines my happiness.

    I’m happy that you’re happy with what you’ve got, Moz. 🙂

    why are they searching for happiness?
    it’s because they don’t know what happiness is.
    and why don’t they know what happiness is?
    it’s because they don’t know what sadness is.

    have a great day, jemima. 🙂

    Everyone go around searching for happiness; but they don’t know that it is always there, just beside us. It all matters on how do you choose to perceive things.


    That’s true, Kyels. 🙂
