We all seek novel ways to be happy and enjoy life. And, why wouldn't we?
However, some of the most delightful ideas are so simple, that we easily overlook, or forget about them.
Go back and focus on the little things, of which some of these are examples...
The enjoyment and bliss are right there, waiting for you to experience!
I invite you to ponder the following. Remember or imagine.
Don't they make you feel good?
Add your own examples to the list!
A clear conscience
The first, real day of spring
Receiving the perfect gift
A cool breeze, floating through the window
The heady scent of fresh, red roses
Slipping slowly into a hot bath
The smile that you know and love
Gratitude rushing over you
Seeing a person whom you have missed
Children and animals sharing affection
The first few bites, when you're really hungry
A rich and vibrant sunset
Finding the answer
A first date that goes incredibly well
The swelling of hope in your heart
The sound of the cat purring
A new song that you can't stop playing
The moment when you finally sit down, after a long day
The train arriving just as you get there
Ripples of water blooming out into a lake
Waking up with a start, and then remembering that it's Saturday
Warm, fuzzy socks
Rising to the challenge
Discovering money in a place where you had forgotten about it
An unexpected, but welcome opportunity
Finishing a difficult project
Kindness between children
Clean, fresh sheets
The first, blank page of a new notebook
The awareness that you're creating a wonderful memory, right now
When it's easier than you thought it would be
A great movie, that not only entertains, but enlightens, and offers you new insight
A sense of becoming yourself, still, or again
Getting a surprise that delights you
Holding a sleeping, newborn baby
The smell of freshly cut grass in summer
The first sip of hot coffee
The promise inherent in a brand new day
Knowing what real love feels like
