Anyone else every find themselves not appreciating the simple things in life? I have found myself doing this often lately, especially with family. Family is supposed to be the greatest part about life. Now, family doesn’t have to be your mom, dad, siblings, etc., it can be close friends. Having a close family helps living life even better and more joyful. Lately, I have not been spending as much time with my family because I was trying to impress others who don’t matter. Make people prove that they deserve to be in your life before you give them a place in it. Opening yourself up too fast is setting you up to failure. This is something I have learned the hard way, but I am beginning to learn who I need to help me grow. Stay close to friends and family and spend as much time with them as possible. You will find yourself becoming happier. “Enjoying the finer things in life” does not mean diamonds and fancy clothes ladies!!! Enjoy the people who love to just be around you and bring out the best in you! Have a wonderful day everyone and think positive!
