Happy (little things) weekend!

categories Inspiration, Lifestyle Design    

If one could only learn to appreciate the little things … A song that takes you away, for there are those who cannot hear. The beauty of a sunset, for there are those who cannot see. The warmth and safety of your home, for there are those who are homeless. Time spent with good friends for there are those who are lonely. A walk along the beach for there are those who cannot walk. The little things are what life is all about…”

    Beautiful, Maria!
    I totally agree. Since happiness is made up of little moments, it will never come to you if you can’t appreciate the little things in life.
    Have a nice Friday!
    Big hugs

    This couldn’t have been posted at a better time! My assoicate and I were in a deep conversation in regards to issues of life and having gratitude amongst pain no matter! As we were speaking, I was glancing over your post! I stopped our conversation and said, “you’re not gonna believe what’s in front of me”. So I began to read. Thank you!

    Beautiful! Happy weekend, sweetie :)

    What a beautiful quote. Not that one’s happiness should always be so relative, but it helps me to keep gratitude and joy going in my life to keep a healthy sense of perspective about all that I have, especially in comparison to many others. Thanks for visiting my blog this morning! I had fun looking through the gorgeous pics on a few of your posts and trying to decipher the German with my 2 years of college German. Tschus!

    Wow, wundervoller Blog! Tolle Fotos und überhaupt! Wenn ich nur endlich ein Haus habe, engagiere ich dich ;)

    Danke fürs Vorbeischauen auf meinem Blog!

    Liebe Grüsse,

    Maria, this is so beautiful! I think I’m that kind of person that sees the little things every day and I’m just so grateful for them. And it is so important to not forget how lovely life really is! THANKS for sharing and I might borrow that quote one day, but I’ll link back to you :) Have a beautiful weekend!

    We must never take “little things” for granted, they are the foundation for “big things”!

    Have a beautiful weekend Maria!

    P.S. Love the pic!

    What a beautiful quote! I try to spend some time being grateful for all I have everyday, but I do miss the little things sometimes, like having a warm safe home. Thank you so much for this reminder.

    Lovely thoughts! Its been raining here and I was swearing about why the weather is turning so bad….Thank you for giving me a whack on the head and reminding me to be grateful and enjoy every moment and not sulk!

    Have a great weekend!

    Well said! The little things matter the most. We tend to take them for granted because the big things are in the way.

    Beautiful Maria! Have a wonderful weekend.
