I have been thinking about how the small things in life should make us happy, and that they can make my day if I let them.
The grass is not greener in any other place you imgaine it to be. The grass is greenest where you water it, and it is watered by your attitude and outlook.
LOVE & ENJOY the small moments of life & then these pile up to make a contented and enjoyable person to be around -- after all life is about how much you can give, not how much you get.
Check out this list "natural highs" of the little things you can enjoy...

BUT wait there is more...
It is not just plain chocolate, along the way u get to eat like little sweets or treasures in the chocolate, these are the parts of life u treasure, and savour. The times when u thank God for memories, or wish u could just save the moment in a bottle. These are the 'warm fuzzies' of life that we are always thankful for.
But they are only cool cos they only come along sometimes and so u enjoy them (like hokey-pokey icecream)...but u cant get upset when u haven’t had one in awhile...cos even without them your life is still sweet!
