What you have right now will not last. Happiness and sadness alike. The most important thing is to not waste it away. Appreciate what you have right now. Yes, you might want more or better things in life. But just take a moment and count your blessings. You probably have more right now than others. So don’t let your desire to achieve the best that you can make you forget the things that you already have. Gratitude is not a sign of complacency rather it is a much needed reminder to yourself to not lose perspective in the course of going after your dreams. Just because it is there right now, doesn’t mean it will always be.
