May 3: The little things. Describe a little thing – one of the things you love that defines your world but is often overlooked.
… Accept what you cannot change.
They say that the simplest way to achieve happiness is contentment, the gift of acceptance for one’s self. Truly it is, that simplicity is beauty itself, but unfortunately, only a few were given the ability of self-actualization, the understanding that the littlest things are the most important and that the big things are just nothing but temporary.
Nature is one of those little things that we weren’t really able to appreciate that much. And on a deeper note, we are also the reason of its destruction. You might say that since it just gives the air we breathe and it cannot give you the most expensive jewelries, mouth-watering dishes, nor the newest gadgets, so you won’t care anymore, but that just ruined the whole thing. You consider the air you breathe as a little thing yet it’s the reason why you can still wear those jewelries or eat those foods or play with those gadgets.
Dear reader, I think this generation had been so ambitious that they overlooked into the future without giving importance to what they still have in the present nor learning from the lessons of the past. I hope you are not one of them. Learn to appreciate the littlest things, because they provide you the biggest joy you could possibly have.
