Simple Moments

California Sunset

The older I get the more I realize that life is short, it is what you make it, it’s a series of simple moments.  We all have the power inside of us to get exactly out of life what we choose. There is no room for blaming others at the end.  I do realize there are some with circumstances that alter ones life, but for most of us, we make all our own choices.  We can choose to smile at the simple moments or we can just watch those moments as they go by.

It is my choice to look out for the simple moments that we all have daily.  I know sometimes it is difficult to stop for a moment in our busy day to day lives.  Give it a try, I know if you look, you too will find those simple moments that will make you smile.

Here are my top ten simple moments that make me smile…

1. When I receive a love note from Handsome.

2. When a flock of birds fly in formation.

3. When I scoot over for a motorcycle while driving and they thank me.

4. When I catch the sunset at the moment it disappears.

5. When I slip into clean sheets {the best feeling ever}.

6. When my favorite song comes on the radio.

7. When my kids say “I love you” to me.

8. When my yorkie curls up in my lap at the end of the day.

9. When a butterfly flies in front of me.

10. Hearing a child laugh.

What are your favorite daily simple moments?

    So very true! Some of the most beautiful things in life are the simplest… a really good cup of coffee, unexpected flowers blooming in the yard, watching my two cats at play. Life is good!
