Little Pieces of BIG Happiness

A simple note that made my day/week.
"The happiest people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they make the best of everything they have."
- Author Unknown

When I was back at Cal Poly Pomona, my friend Francine told me, "I believe that the happiest people in life are the ones who find happiness in the little things."  I can't remember the context of the conversation or why she told me that, but I took her advice to heart and it has stuck with me ever since.

It's always in my mind when I think about what makes me happy.  Every day I discipline myself more and more to find satisfaction in what I already have and not want more than I actually need. 

Fresh coffee in the morning, knowing that I have a great job, and knowing that my family can't wait to see me when I come home are some examples of the little things in life that bring me great happiness.
