The Simple Things in Life

During these rough times, you always seem to think about the hard times. Why is this happening to me? Why can't I find a job? Why? Why? Why? When rough times hit, we always seem to think about the negative in our life, but sometimes we just have to sit back and relax and think about the simple things in our life.
Even if it is as simple as a flower. Take a few minutes to look at this amazing flower. What do you see? For just those few minutes you are at peace and relaxed. I believe sometimes you just have to take a deep breath and look at the simple things in your life.
