Are we taking enough time out of our day to appreciate the smaller things in life? Or are we more obsessed with big, impressive material things? It's important to remember that we can't fully appreciate the major things unless we can appreciate the minor ones, too. A stranger's smile, a little kid's gigglefit, or even just the beautiful clouds in the sky all deserve our notice. We all run the risk of taking things for granted if we don't appreciate them more consciously.
