“Trade your expectation for appreciation and the world changes instantly.”
Do you find yourself feeling so stressed and disappointed about life lately?
Studies show that 8 out of 10 Americans reported having frequent experience of stress daily.
Why is it so common among people nowadays?
The answer is simple but a lot of people failed to realize this.
Focusing too much on the “bigger things” in life can set you up for a lot of unnecessary stress and disappointments.
Why? Because when those big things you are focusing on too much won’t work out as expected, chances are you will get frustrated and burn out which can lead to more setbacks and discouragement.
However, when you take the time to appreciate all the smaller but equally beautiful things that are right in front of you, your whole perspective and viewpoint about life will also change. You will have more moments of pure bliss and gratitude, which can open up more opportunities – meaning, you’ll have more reasons to be thankful!

What Does It Mean To Appreciate The Little Things Of Life?

Thus, it is important to have a grasp of what appreciation truly mean.

A lot of people today have invested and are still investing a lot of their time in complaining and feeling sad and frustrated over the negative aspects of their life which they barely have control over, oblivious of the fact that appreciating the little good things of life is one of the basic keys to success.
Thinking a lot about this lately, a story crossed my mind. It is a story about a little boy who loved shoes so much but couldn't have as much as he wanted because his parents couldn't afford them.
The little boy always complained and grumbled and whined at every smallest opportunity he gets. At a point, he became tired of his parent's poverty and hated life so badly he wished he could just die and put an end to all the sadness that life brings him.
One day, this little boy went to play at the beach and there he met one of the shockers of his life. A few kids who had either of their legs amputated were using clutches to play the game of soccer and the joy that was plastered on their faces as they played was almost indescribable.
The boy watched in amazement as he learned one of life’s biggest lessons to always appreciate life even with the little you have.
