The Small Things in life is often the most unseen, which I think is sad, because it is those small things as make our lives to what seems to be lives with both happiness and sadness.
When I walk by the beach I try to notice all the stones, shells and what else to find at the beach. Every time we have tide, we can find new treasures from the sea. The sea is changing second by second, so the view I had today will be another for tomorrow, even I stay same place tomorrow.
For me this is to stay in the moment here and now and just enjoy. Nothing about the past or tomorrow, just now…
To get up in the morning, open the window and hear the birds happy singing is for me a nice way to wake up. When I get up, I have my two old cats and Odin who all wish to say good morning and get/give kisses and hugs. How can I wish for a better start at the day?
When I walk in the nature, I see a lot of nice and not so nice things around me. I choose to notice the beauty, because I am not able to change the not so nice things in my environment. Every day the nature show new kinds of beauty, I just need to be awake to notice them. A new flower has found the way up or show the beautiful flower today, an orange tree was green short time ago and now the oranges are ready for eating, hey where went that time? I must have been blind, when I didn’t notice that. It is not possible to notice all we see, but by giving attention to most possible helps a lot.
What do you do to notice the small things in life? Please share…
To receive a nice message, letter etc. make me very happy, special when it comes from a loved soul. What also can boost my happiness is to do something for other souls, humans or animals. By giving a smile we spreads joy and happiness. All need kindness and sometimes we don’t have the abundance to give kindness, then it would be nice to receive other souls kindness. We never know what a soul has been or are going through.
Be kind – it is always possible – yes it is, if you wish to.
