Appreciate the little things happening in life, later you’ll realize how big those little things were.

You just don’t know that you live in a paradise. Yes, you do. We all have so many blessings in our lives, but usually we don’t notice them. 

In today’s world of overwhelming, simple things are not that easy to understand. Our bodies are designed to be in harmony with the sun, the moon, the seasons, and nature. This is the simplicity that our souls long for. Therefore, our adaptation to the “modern era” has been fraught with danger to our mental and physical health. Each morning, our forefathers welcomed the sun, ate simple, home-cooked meals, played with their children and grandchildren, and savored a magnificent sunset, without television to lure them indoors on a summer evening. For me, it is very exciting and tempting to watch a good web series, but I find that if I make good, tasty food while listening to relaxing music after coming back home from the office – that moment is more fulfilling and satisfying. And yes, that’s the simple pleasure.
