20+ Pics Showing Happiness is Always Within Reach When You Appreciate the Simple Things

Happiness embraces us in all our experiences — yet we sometimes aren’t fully aware of it. All it takes is to slow down from our hectic lives and take a look around us. The grandmother who’s learning to write for the first time, the comfort of a cozy hug, no matter where it comes from, the man who finally gets to see colors thanks to a special present from his wife.

Bright Side wants to show you a glimpse of what happiness looks like and we have collected pictures from internet users proving that sometimes the smallest things can have the greatest impact on our everyday lives.
