It’s important to cherish the simple things in life: a good song, perfect weather, a warm hug, fresh fruit, a fart that doesn’t smell. So often we zoom through our day without taking time to appreciate the subtle gifts so easily overlooked. This afternoon gave us the most perfect weather I could imagine, so Nick and I sat together briefly on the front porch to enjoy it. There was no reason to be perched out there other than to experience the sunshine and warm breeze.
In that transient moment, life was perfect.
When was the last time you turned an ordinary moment into something extraordinary just by deciding to do so? Imagine how much richer our days would be if we sought to see the beauty in the boring? -the humor in the humdrum? -the delight in the dull? -the terrific in the tedious? Do it right now; commit, that is, to allowing yourself to enjoy moments of your life that would normally pass by without notice. I’m doing it – at this very moment – because writing this blog feels so good.
