20 People That Prove True Happiness Is in the Little Things

Happiness is the thing that inevitably happens when you practice being grateful for the smallest things in life. It’s when you smile because you finally finished the painting you’ve been working on, or when you grin as you chat with your loved ones. It is all about appreciating the tiny joys in life and being able to laugh, even for the most peculiar reasons.
