We all seek to add years to our life. But do we really enjoy the ones we already have.
Simple things are the basic to have a good life. If you feel good with what you have, then you already have the start to enjoy. If you focus on what you don’t have, you don’t enjoy anything. In the end, we remember the moment of joy.
“In the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.”
- Abraham Lincoln
Focus on the simple and enjoy life. You have the power to find the simple in any situation. It’s up to you to choose to find it or not. And even when you don’t find it at once, if you keep focusing on your quest to find it, you’ll feel the joy of doing so. Focusing on the simple and enjoying it will help you stay happy.
“Life's most persistent and urgent question is: 'What are you doing for others?'”
- Martin Luther King, Jr.
Joy can come from doing simple things for others. Many people under-estimate the benefit of doing something to help others. You’ll know your limit and you should respect them.
What is simple for you can be very complicated for someone else. Always set the level of what you do with what you can do. Go along with what you feel is within your capacity.
