Underrated

Updated: Mar 9, 2019

From my personal experiences over the years, what things did I find underrated? What things do I appreciate or enjoy but don't always notice? For the most part, items on my underrated list are things you will not see in today's media landscape. In fact, appreciating the little things in life may help someone become less focused on TV and social media and more on what's really important. Most of these items don't have a large marketing budget to help promote yet at the same time, allows people the chance to appreciate the more significant things in life.
