With everything that is going on in this world right now I can really hold on to one thing, my faith in God. It's what keeps me from going crazy. It's made me look back and appreciate the smaller things in life. Those little things that you don't really think about or don't always appreciate because we have so much.
Here's a list of the simple pleasure of life that make me happy...
♥ The excitement of a new baby in the family
♥ A smile from a baby (those gummy grins make me melt)
♥ Feeling safe and loved when surrounded by family
♥ The sun shining through the curtains early in the morning
♥ Sunday afternoon naps
♥ Opening up a brand new journal
♥ Hearing a song that brings back a memory
♥ An unexpected piece of mail
♥ Finding a quote, a Bible verse or song lyrics that you need to hear/read right at that moment
♥ The sound of rain when you are cosy and relaxed in bed
♥ Finding a book released earlier than you thought
♥ Words of encouragement when you are feeling low
♥ Photos capturing moments of happiness
♥ The feel of sun on your skin
♥ Feeling so happy you can't contain it
♥ Companionable silence, when you feel like you don't have to say anything at all
♥ Diving into a pool and it makes you feel refreshed on a hot day
♥ Hot chocolate at night
♥ That feeling of accomplishment after a hard day of work
♥ Laughing so hard your stomach hurts with your friends
♥ Feeling beautiful with my hubby even when I'm not dressed up, have messy hair and wearing glasses because he makes me feel that way
♥ Looking at the clouds and daydreaming
♥ Gazing at the moon and stars at night
♥ The love of God and how no matter what I do, He is there waiting for me
I'm feeling so thoughtful lately and I can feel a change in the air. I've been journalling a lot lately to get those thoughts onto paper. To clear up my mind. And I know that I was born to do so much more in this life. I don't want to sit back and let it pass without doing some difference in the world.
Do you ever feel this way? Knowing that you have a purpose? What are some simple pleasures in your life?
