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.
Some of my favorite small moments are the silence of the world early in the morning. 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?
