I came across a Hub on the writers’ site HubPages this morning, and the theme is about the simple pleasures in life. Here it is if you want to read it…..go here!
The point is that we spend a great deal of time and money planning for the big pleasures….a new bigscreen television…..an upcoming vacation…..a new car….and we get so busy taking care of the everyday events in life, that there are times we overlook the simple pleasures that are all around us.
Fall has arrived with a vengeance right now, and as I look out the window the leaves are cascading down around me, greens and oranges and yellows and reds, a veritable blizzard of color. The clouds are flying past at breakneck speed, and the whole scene changes every ten seconds, or so it seems.
One of our dogs, Atticus, is curled up at my feet as I type this; his tail is wagging and soon he will stand up and put his head in my lap, and look up at me with those big brown eyes that are filled with love, and my heart will melt.
Those are simple pleasures and they are so special. I do not have dreams of glory. I do not have dreams of riches. What I do have dreams of is living my life in such a way that I can enjoy each and every minute of the mundane nature of life. I have everything that I need and want in life right now, and it doesn’t cost me a penny.
I am rich in so many ways, and I will continue to remain rich as long as I keep living simple!
Can you think of three simple pleasures in your day right now?
