It’s the Simple Things In Life That Make Living More Enjoyable

I like getting something new every now-and-again; it’s exciting.  There is something about getting that package delivered to the house and unpacking it to see the surprise.  I don’t buy a lot of things, but when I do I am like a kid waiting for Christmas morning.

I believe it’s the simple things in life that make living more enjoyable.  And it is the simple things that many take for granted.  I try to be aware of these small moments and breath them in; savor them if you will.

The sound of water running.  Laying in the grass and watching the clouds.  Noticing how blue the sky can be on certain days.  That moment at the beach when my feet touch the sand for the first time in months.  The refreshing feeling of taking a cool shower in the summer when the heat spikes past 95.

If you blink you might miss some of these moments so be sure to practice awareness and give yourself time to experience them.  What are some of your favorite small moments?

  1. First thing in the morning when I get up before everyone and the house is quiet, when the coffee first starts in the coffee maker and you get a whiff, or when you are on vacation and you get that first smell of the salt water. 🙂

  2. This is so true. Sometimes we are so distracted waiting for the big stuff to be good that we don’t give ourselves the opportunity to step back and realise the small and simple things around us. I would rather have a day full of simple pleasures than on big thing. My favourite simple pleasure is a morning coffee.

    • I love the morning coffee. I prepare our Ninja the night before and sometimes I get excited that night about waking in the morning for a new type of coffee. lol

  3. The smell of freshly baked bread or a cake just out of the oven. Sitting on the grass and watching the clouds roll by, walking with Harry and hugs any time of the day with my son. Oh and simple back rubs. Yes, the small things are definitely the best.

  4. I got up at 5 this morning and discovered flames still flickering from a fire we started 2 nights ago so I threw on some cardboard and am enjoying my coffee beside it. Thanking God for his goodness!

  6. Hi, I love the simple things in life. Today was my last appointment with my psychologist and it was wonderful.
    She gave me a goodbye gift and card, a lovely gesture I wasn’t expecting. I too thankfully had also bought her a thank you pressie and card for the years she listened to my waffle. The giving and receiving and mutual appreciation are also the Simple Things in Life.
    Nice to read your blog
    Cheers Mo X
