Enjoythe simple things in life

There are as many nights as days, and the one is just as long as the other in the year's course. Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word 'happy' would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.
--Carl Jung

The other day I went out with a friend of mine. We were talking about life and things that happen. And he said -"you know you can't be happy all your life, could you? Life is fool of suffering!"... I thought for a little bit and then replied him that you could be happy if you learn to enjoy all the little things in life. If you know how to do this then you will always have a reason to be happy no matter what else happens. You know...there will always be something that is not going the way you want it to be but this should not bother you.You should find the strength to enjoy a smile, a nice gesture, the nature, the stars because if you are always busy chasing big things and don't pay attention to the little, one day when you catch that "big thing" you will have nothing left to enjoy... and that is the sadness in life, that we always aim high, but when we reach our goal we feel just a momentum of happiness and then we just get used to it and don't enjoy it... SO think what makes you happy and enjoy it. I myself love when I see the neighbor early in the morning and he smiles back at me and says "Good morning"- that just makes my day. I love late night walks, I love watching the stars or the sunrise... these are some really simple things and we are so used to them that we do not pay attention to them, but if we don't have them-we have nothing...so enjoy them!
For example before the first time I injured my shoulder I never thought what a privilege it is to have two arms, and when I dislocated my shoulder I had to wear a brace for two months, and I could use only one of my arms, and I realized how hard it was to do so many simple things like tie my shoes or tie my hair... so after I got healthy I am always thankful that I am able to do all these little things! SO don't take anything for granted,enjoy everything you possibly could no matter how simple it is!
