Default Appreciate what we have: sweet and inpirational

Sometimes we take things for granted and not realize the little things, not appreciate what we have. We always try to compare with others, envy others, but that only makes us unhappy at the end of the days. Really try to embrace what you have...

what are some of the things that you appreciate on a daily basis?? please share your story

@sxu...I do agree with you on the fact that we should learn to appreciate the little things in life more...
happiness/unhappiness are contradictive in that sense that it's often more easy to determine how we feel when we feel sad,angry,depressive...to answer your question i often try to go for a few daily things in life like contentment,
accepting myself as i am and accepting others around me as they are...judging people leads us into controversial feelings..i bet before we judge anyone we should learn to see who we are ourselves..it often demands discipline..
i appreciate a good conversation,understanding, good food,laughter,music,drinking a beer or a whiskey knowing my limits,furthermore a lot of us cannot live without the internet,i cannot live without music,and i want this world to be a better place regarding racism,sexism,social and mental issues...we should start with ourselves,nobody is or can be perfect,but i think life can be beautiful if we make it look that waythanks for starting this thread,my mood is usually inspirational,but can also be happy or pensive...i will come back into this thread later on...

I really appreciate that my cat seems to know when I'm down and insists on smooching me.

I appreciate a nice hot cup of lemon & ginger tea now that is winter and freezing cold when I get up in the mornings

O.K,Sxu...here we o with a bit of life philosophy...

**I asked the zebra,
are you black with white stripes?
or white with black stripes?

and the zebra asked me,
are you good with bad habits?
or are you bad with good habits?
are you noisy with quiet times?
or are you quiet with noisy times?
are you happy with sad days?
or are you sad with happy days?
are you neat with some sloppy ways?
or are you sloppy with some neat ways?
and on and on and on and on..
and on and on he went...
I'll never ask a zebra..
about stripes...again..**


the face..is the mirror of the mind..
and eyes without speaking..
confess the secrets of the heart..

I have always been a thinker in life=it sometimes gave me joy or sadness,but still i hold on towards the positive aspects of life=what we are,what we wanna be..or wish to be anyhow..
i often compared life with a movie where most of us only play a minor role,we are not the stars as such...we are only tiny fractions in the whole system on which the world is based..still i think each of us got a role to play in the first place for our own contentment and inner peace,and secondly towards humanity in general as well..what's the use of carping at about ourselves,which is something we do not wish for ourself,or others for that matter..we often face something in life we did not expect at all..if life would be a mirror?then we'll get the best result if we can see a reflection of a happy face..looking too much in mirrors sometimes can give us a wrong idea..are we smiling because we must smile?in darker days the mirror does not smile back..i believe in a deeper sense of emotions when we can give something back to others,a good word,a good deed,actions create reaction..all of us face difficulties because life is not a bed of roses..therefore crossing a bridge together is better then crossing it alone..the purpose of life should be that we emotionally are constantly in a growing process,because i think the only travell wortwhile is a trip through our own mind,on that journey we discover who we really are and how others see us..life is not only meant for dreamers who only see the positive sides...it is a combination of positive/negative experiences,each one of us can learn from these lessons of life..we all search for our path..how difficult it can be sometimes,is it not?life seems difficult but..does it not always start from the thoughts between our 2 ears?i think a good feeling comes out of a tiny corner sometimes,the little things in life count...speaking for myself i went through bitterness,desillusion,love,
disgust,fear,anxiety and dissapointments..but i always came out of it...and i tasted life the good way often enough...
if i make a total sum then i say...I wanna live according to the motto WOLO==we only live once..that's why i think positivity is a counterbalance towards negativity...easier said then done...i know...but i always went for it..

haha good one, thx for posting this funny life philosophy. I think everyone should have some laugher once a day. I mean when days are dark and sad, try to find someone, doing something, or watching something that can bring some humor into your life. Humor reliefs a lot of stress...I think it's a great necessity for us human being. Next time will come back with some funny or inspiration video for everyone to keep moving forward...

yes definitely you have strong mind that's what people need to think when they get stuck in their dark mind. I know it's tough but having this philosophy can really help you overcome alot of obstacle. yes life is precious don't take anything for granted. Definitely keep sharing experience with others will help
