Life… Unpredictable, mysterious, surprising, astonishing… One day you wake up with incredible plans for your future. Next morning, you are broke, miserable, and your life does not make sense anymore. You need to struggle, create new goals again, again and again. At the end, you have chances to greet morning with the smile on your face. Amazing? Maybe… But anyway, the life is worth this fight!

Why we do so? Why we just cannot be grateful for the things that we have? Why we just cannot be grateful for life that was granted to us? Why we make our lives so complicated?
My friend had recently retailed me the conversation that she had heard in the bus. It was between the little boy and his mother. He told her: ‘I have a father, a mother, two grandmothers, and a grandfather. I am so rich…’
