"Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things."
This quote is encouraging people to appreciate the small moments in life. It is suggesting that while we may not think much of them at the moment, they can become more meaningful in hindsight. These small moments could include spending time with family and friends, taking a nice walk, or enjoying a good meal. By taking the time to appreciate these moments, we can look back later and realize that they were the important things in life.
