  The Beauty of the Little Things in Life

The pursuit of happiness makes us strive for more all the time. And once we’ve accomplished a certain goal that promised great happiness, we are already pursuing the next one.

This kind of attitude focuses our attention on the things we do not have and tricks us into believing that by adding these things to our lives, happiness will emerge. It is a way of thinking that makes it quite difficult to be quite happy in the present moment. Similarly, it can result in greater levels of discontent when we are not able to attain what we desire.

It also shifts our attention far away from the present moment and all the beautiful joys that can be found in it.

The ability to draw happiness from the little things in life also has a lot to do with gratitude. If you are able to center your attention on all the beautiful aspects that are already to be found in your life, you will become a much more grateful person.

“The small things of life were often so much bigger than the great things… The trivial pleasure like cooking, one’s home, little poems especially sad ones, solitary walks, funny things seen and overheard.”
                                                 – Barbara Pym

Being grateful for the little things is a unique skill to not only be content with your Life but also to be less dependent on the outcome of external circumstances.

It marks the first step towards discovering the true source of Happiness which lies within.
