Little Pleasures Of My Life…

11 Jan

They say the best things in life are free.  I always believed that the pleasures of life lie in the small things that we do, not the big things. Just a little dose of inspiration which I had and I jotted down some of the little things which can sometimes make me really happy:

  • My parents’ smiles;
  • Cuddling with my cats;
  • Long drives to unknown destinations or night time drives;
  • Sitting down and watching the rain near a splendid mountain view;
  • Getting drenched in the rain;
  • The anticipation & hype just before boarding the plane for a long holiday;
  • Clocking your card out of work just before a weekend off/days off;
  • Finally laying in bed under the comfy, freshly washed bed sheet after a hard day at work;
  • The smell of gasoline;
  • Laying on the beach, watching the stars & listening to waves crashing on the shore;
  • Getting a message right away after thinking about someone;
  • Watching the sunset;
  • The other side of the pillow;
  • Driving over little hills and getting the mini roller in your stomach;
  • The joy of unpacking gifts;
  • Watching your payslip at the end of the month;
  • Smell of perfume/body lotion which reminds you of someone or your childhood;
  • Waking up in the middle of the night and realising you have long hours to sleep;
  • A compliment/reward/blessing;
  • Feeling the cold sand on your feet at night;
  • Spontaneous adventures: A phone call, jump in the car and just drive!
  • A nice swim;
  • A good conversation and a nice laugh;
  • Holding hands with someone you love;
  • Get a hug from someone by surprise, just when you need it most;
  • Bringing a smile on someone’s face;
  • Just sitting and observing people;
  • Succeed in doing something which people say you can’t do;
  • Enjoying a nice movie under the quilt on a rainy day;
  • Lighting scented candles and just relaxing with some soft music!

Sometimes, we have to just forget about the big things which we THINK will make us happy. Sometimes we have to be happy with what we have, with our surroundings, with people who cares to be in your life… rather than waste our time and effort with what we don’t have and over people who don’t care.

Smile that perfect smile 🙂 Life’s good!
