Enjoying the Little Things

Pin It
We as human beings can really get in the way of our own happiness sometimes. We can get so caught up in what we have to do or what we should be doing, that we miss out on the simple everyday pleasures we receive. Life isn't always easy {and I apologize if I sound pessimistic} but it's true. 

Life can be a struggle at times. It's very easy to get wrapped up in life's challenges and makes you forget about life's blessings. I think it's very important throughout life to take a step back...take a big breath in...and look around at what you do have. 

There are times in my life that I forget about these little, beautiful moments that occur on a daily basis, because I'm too wrapped up in the negative. My mind sometimes prohibits me from enjoying these little things...these moments that remind me that life truly is beautiful...even when it is challenging.

Sometimes I'm so wrapped up in what isn't going right, that I'll find myself missing a beautiful simple moment...simple moments like....
the way my pups greet me at the door every time I come home...

and getting a voice mail from my niece and nephew just saying "I love you auntie!"...

or just breathing in the fresh spring air...
But when I do notice these beautiful simple moments, I find myself smiling...appreciating life just a little bit more in that moment...graciously accepting the simple moment of happiness.

I challenge myself, and for anyone reading this, to take a moment each day to appreciate the little things in life...whatever that may be.  Because life really is about the everyday little things that defines who we are and ends up shaping our lives forever.

{{What are YOUR simple moments that make YOUR life beautiful?}}



  1. Love this post :) I'd write a longer comment but Kenley is pulling my hair haha oh and she says hi and that she wants to see you this weekend. That is all :)

  2. My simple moment is when I wake up in the morning and roll over to see my darling puppy playing on the bed. It's so sweet to be able to wake up to him and know that life is simple in that moment.

  3. Tell Kenley HI Amanda! And Sue, I couldn't agree more about waking up and rolling over to be greeted by puppies :)
