Recognising the Simple Pleasures in Life

Recognising the Simple Pleasures in Life

Over on my Instagram Stories recently, I have been putting up a post everyday at 7pm all about 3 things that made me smile that day. I love putting these posts together because not only do they allow a space for reflection about the lovely moments of my day, but I find that throughout the day, I am taking note of things that make me smile that I otherwise may not have highlighted in the same way. It is encouraging me to recognise the simple pleasures in life.

There is so much that happens in my day that could easily pass me by. Like now, for instance. I am sitting outside in the garden writing this blog post on one of the first warm and sunny days since a few days of rain. If I stop and listen, I can hear birds chirping and the world happening around me. My mum has picked some flowers from the garden that are sitting in a vase in front of me and are such a vibrant yellow colour, and the dogs have just come outside to join me in the garden.

Stopping to recognise the lovely things happening around me in this way has made me feel a greater sense of calm in the moment. That is why I love recognising a few things that made me smile each day, because it allows me to feel so appreciative and grateful for what is around me.

I would definitely encourage anyone reading this to finish your day by writing down a few things that made you smile throughout the day. Whether it is the kindness of another person, a cup of tea, something on the TV that made you laugh or something you spotted looking out of the window. Whatever it may be that has made you smile that day; I have found that recognising the simple pleasures in life in this way is really beneficial.
