DAILY HAPPINESS TIP #16- Always Love What You Got and Remember What You Had

“He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has.”  ~Epictetus

Appreciate what you have and what you’ve been having for only in recognizing that you’ve been so blessed that you forgo envy for what others possess and purge grudges for what escaped you.  Be forewarned though that this could be the most difficult thing to do for according to Aldous Huxley, “Most human beings have an almost infinite capacity for taking things for granted.”
“We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.”  ~Thornton Wilder

Hi this is really great. It is really worth reading. We need not strive to be happy, there are little joys in life that we experience every day that we should be thankful for.
