I learned that to be happy, you have to be able to put time aside for the little things. Even if you have an endless list of things to do, there must always be time for things like family and friends. The tasks in your list will still be there. However, if you do not appreciate your family and friends, you will lose them.
To be successful, you need to be happy. If you are not happy, you will never be successful. A list cannot make you happy. Only family and friends can do that.
For example, I always have a lot of homework from my teachers. However, I always try to make time to spend with my family. It is during those moments that I am truly happy.
Also, even when I am really busy, I still try to help my parents. When my mom has groceries or needs me to take out the trash, I always try to help. It is these little things that strengthen the bond between parent and child.
