…When the simple things in life make you smile the most.
I’ve always been a believer in “the little things, matter the most”, but this photo of a young boy from a floating village in Siem Reap; who has a lot less than most children his age (in the Western World, that is); really reprsents such. He radiates with happiness- from the simple pleasures of life.
The photo pretty much speaks for itself and that’s what I love most; because you can’t help but smile as well!
Taken on a recent trip to Cambodia, the shot captures a moment pure joy! He was riding his bike (that is clearly too big for him- yet it never phased him), along the river with his friends, before he fell off. Naturally, falling off your bike would be something to cry about, however this was not the case for this young lad; he got straight back up and decided to push the bike for a while instead; all with a huge grin on his face. This kind of moment/ photo really makes you appreciate the little things! No matter what happens in life, no matter how many times you fall, you have to get back up and most importantly; with a smile!
