The Simple Pleasures of Life

This morning, I had the privilege of enjoying a wonderful breakfast outside on my patio. The sun was shining, the birds were singing their morning song, and I had a delicious breakfast of eggs (over easy), a bowl of cereal, and English tea. Nothing fancy, just simple, honest, and tasty food!

To me, this was a great opportunity relax, enjoy a minute of peace and quiet, and take a step back to enjoy some of the simple pleasure of life. And I think that’s the reason why I’m writing this post – to give myself some time to reflect, relax, change up my daily schedule a bit, and just enjoy the moment (and have more of these kinds of experiences in the future too).

And in our culture of trying to cram in as many activities as possible, I think it’s something that most of us don’t take the time to do and I’m so grateful for this opportunity this morning. It could something as simple as enjoying the feeling of the sun warming your skin, feeling the cool and moist air of the early morning, going for a walk or getting some exercise, or even just listsening to some great music to name a few. And I mean really savor and enjoy the moment. Focus on the little details, like watching a ladybug stretch out its wings, listening to every note and taking in the harmonies of the music you’re listening to, and feeling truly alive.

To me, this opportunity has reminded me of how fortunate and blessed I am. Life is too short to be angry or bitter, to hold grudges or be upset about things that you can’t even change. It’s far better to let it go, do what you can to the best of your abilities and live life to the fullest with as few regrets as possible. That reminds me, I need to get going on my to do list for today!

Life is good – cheers to more happy and fulfilling experiences.
