Simple pleasures of life are the ones which really make a difference and make our day a happy one . We all have heard that the best things in life are free, but they usually aren’t noticed. All of us desire something big in the hope that after we get that we will be happy. But after getting that thing your heart moves to the next thing and you continue to circle. In this vicious circle does the big happy ending come about? I guess not. But the small pleasures of life can.
We are all in pursuit of happiness .
