Song For Soul: Little Things

People often ask me how I can be so happy most of the times. Honestly, I think it’s because I have had enough bad days… And I have come to realize that the lack of appreciation for what is present is what leads to those bad days.

I have learned to become appreciative and grateful for the little things – and the joy they bring. In many occasions, I have quoted this particular text as I really believe that the “little” things in life bring the greatest joy. From photographing flowers and swans to recognizing and smiling to strangers on the streets, from observing lovers walking hand-in-hand to acknowledging my heart that beats and the air that I breathe, I have come to see these “little” things and appreciate them. The starry nights, a cloudy day, a phone call or text from a friend just to say that he/she loves me, the food I eat, all the possibilities I have, the fact that I can spend time in solitude.. Ahhh.. I love ALL OF IT! I love the moments of my life – even the ones that aren’t as productive as I’d like. This appreciation and contentment keep me happy. We can all be happy.

Complete Lyrics

Been around the whole world, still ain’t seen
Nothin’ like my neighborhood
And of all the fancy satin and silk
My white cotton feels so good
Searched high and low for a place
Where I can lay my burdens down
Ain’t nothin’ in the whole wide world
Like the peace that I have found
It’s the little things
And the joy they bring
(The little things) It’s the little things
And the joy they bring
As simple as a phone call just to make it known
That you’re gonna be a little late
Pure as a kiss on a cheek in a word
That everything will be okay
Call in the mornin’ from my little sister
Singin’ to me, “Happy Birthday”
In the quest for fortune and fame
Don’t forget about the simple things
It’s the little things
And the joy they bring, yeah
(The little things) It’s the little things
And joy
Give me some good food, give me cute shoes
Give me some piece of mind
Bring me some sunshine, bring me some blue sky
Runnin’ ’round in circles, lost my focus
Lost sight of my goal
I do this for the love of music
Not for the glitter and gold
Got everything that I pray for
Even a little more
When I ask to learn humility
This is what I was told
It’s the little things
And the joy they bring, it’s the little things
(The little things) It’s the little things
Give me my guitar, give me a bright star
Give me some good news, give me some cute shoes
Give me Atlanta, give me Savannah
give me my peace of mind
Give me some Stevie, give me some Donny
Give me my daddy, give me my mommy
Pour me some sweet tea, spoonful of honey
I don’t need no Hollywood
