Whenever we feel as if the world is crashing down upon us, we look for a sign to give us hope, to make us feel better. It’s when we’re going through a hard time we realize that the thing we are looking for is already ours. Happiness comes in tiny packages and sometimes all we need is to appreciate the things we have.
