“Enjoy the little things in life, because one day you will look back, and realize they were the big things.”

Always appreciate the little things in life. Whether it is a beautiful sunrise or sunset, pretty flowers growing on the side of the road, music playing on the radio, your pets, your family and friends -- appreciate them. There will always be somebody who is less fortunate than you in this world, and it is important that we realize that. Appreciate the little things.

If you see a beautiful sunrise or sunset, take a picture of it. Capture its radiance and share it with the world. If you’re driving when you see it, pull over and take in its beauty. Somebody might not be able to see the sunrise or sunset. Go outside and soak up the rays on a sunny day. Dance in the rain on a rainy day. Appreciate the little things.

Show your family that you appreciate them. Don’t be afraid to tell them that you love them and always be there for them when they need you. You never know when one day comes that they might not be there anymore. There will always be somebody in the world who is less fortunate than you. Somebody might not have the family that you might take for granted. Always remember that. Always appreciate your parents, no matter how dysfunctional they might be, they gave you life. Appreciate the little things.

Even though it might not be the best house in the world, always remember that there are people in the world that don’t have a place they get to call home. Be thankful that you have a place you get to call home. Appreciate the little things.

Show your friends that you appreciate them. Always be willing to listen when they need you. Strive to be the ideal best friend. Tell them that you love them and that you will always be there for you. Appreciate the good memories and the not so good memories that are made with them. Remember that it is not about quantity, but rather quality. Appreciate the little things.

Growing up, I always had my favorite yellow Labrador Retriever by my side. He was my best friend and I never imagined the day he wouldn’t be there to greet me when I got home. On my 17th birthday, his stomach twisted, and he died. I never realized how much that dog meant to me, until he was gone. Appreciate your pets, because unfortunately they don’t last forever. Pets provide non-stop, unconditional love. Appreciate the little things.

Be thankful for what you have and the people you have in your life. Always remember that there are people who are less fortunate than you, no matter how tough you think you have it. Give back every chance that you get. Life goes by in the blink of an eye. Appreciate the moments. Appreciate the little things.
