There are moments in life when we don’t notice comfortable shoes, cell phones, human rights, farmers markets filled with an abundance of food, the happiness in life that we naturally possess, and when our favorite songs come on the radio. That’s why it’s important to take a step back and reflect on our attitude.

The gift of life should never be taken for granted. You can achieve happiness in life when you stop aspiring for it. Daily gratitude comes only after life satisfaction is achieved. Are you happy with everything you already possess? Do you see how absolutely lucky you are? Really look at your privileges and the graces that are bestowed upon you.
