As we grow older and hopefully wiser, we begin to understand the simple things in life are invaluable. Things we might’ve taken for granted such as health, family, friendships, happiness, hard work, and peace of mind.
We realize these become more important than whatever else comes after them. We value things that last longer, make us smile more often, and make our hearts happier. For instance, a good friend, an injury-free body, a happy family, the reward of knowing the hard work you put in to achieve XYZ. Pretty simple stuff. Essential yet often forgotten.
