Appreciating the Little Things

In this life, we all want some piece of the American Dream. What wasn't told to us was that you have to work extremely hard and take small steps to even achieve a slice of that goal. And boy this has been a climb that has tuckered me out.

The one thing that I can say in achieving all of this is that thank God for my parents teaching me to appreciate the little things so that I won't go so gung ho on the big stuff. Okay if I get a new car or a new TV, I will be overjoyed, no doubt about that. But it doesn't have to be the top of the line or the priciest of them all. As long as it does the function that it's suppose to do, I am happy.

That even includes my paycheck. I know that with the money I earn on the 15th and the end of the month, I can take care of my household, my food, my transportation and whatever is left over, a little fun.

Okay so enough with my rambling, but let me say this, in times where money is funny, change is strange and jobs are hard, just remember that the littlest things should be appreciated because without it, you wouldn't know what you really have.
