“Surely joy is the condition of life.” Henry David Thoreau
“You were made for enjoyment and the world was filled with things which you will enjoy.” John Ruskin
“One can get just as much exultation in losing oneself in a little thing as in a big thing. It is nice to think how one can be recklessly lost in a daisy!” Anne Morrow Lindbergh
Never underestimate the value of taking the time to enjoy the little things in each day. So many people come to me who have lost sight of what they love, what they are passionate about. The reason they have disconnected from their true self is often because they have stopped taking time for the little nurturing activities which feed their soul. It does not take much more time to live well as to live poorly. It can be as simple as pouring your morning juice or smoothie into a beautiful glass instead of a plastic super hero cup. Perhaps it is taking a bit more time in choosing food that really tastes good. A beautiful piece of dark chocolate to savor instead of mindlessly scarfing down a candy bar. Maybe it is taking time to turn on your favorite music the minute you get home from work or changing into luxurious soft clothing in the evening. Sometimes it is mind-food that we need. Taking the time to read a book, a poem or listening to an audio book that will feed your soul. Whatever nurtures you and brings you pleasure do it today!
