Simple Pleasures

I was out walking our dog earlier and when we got back he gave me such an adorable contented smile, it filled me with joy. It made me think about what other simple pleasures there are in life, that brighten our day or make us feel just a little bit special.

These are some of the things I came up with:

A smile from a dog (as above)

doing something kind for someone,

a nuzzle from a cat or kitten,

the sound of genuine laughter,

freshly washed sheets,

walking ย barefoot on soft, warm, dry sand,

a fresh juicy strawberry dipped in a bowl of sugar,

hearing a blackbird sing its beautiful song,

the smell of a fragrant tea rose,

having a cup of tea in the garden on a sunny day,

being the first person to walk on a fresh blanket of snow,

looking up at the stars on a clear night,

basking under a cloudless perfect blue sky,

listening ย to a piece of beautiful music,

watching a graceful ballet dancer,

seeing the first signs of spring after a harsh winter

There are so many more wonderful things that we can experience that don’t require any money, special equipment or effort . ย We should ย embrace these things and make our lives naturally richer. ย I’d love to know what you think…
