With the day to day life hitting you at 100 mph it's seemingly impossible to remember to remember to stop and smell the roses. Just look around at your life or the world around you and appreciate. As humans we are programmed to take things for granted after a while. It's our natural tendency to grow, improve, etc. The car or house you have was probably the greatest thing in the universe the day you got it and now it's just a stepping stone till you get your next house or car. That's just the way it is. But appreciation is sooooo much more important that you know.
