Simple Things In Life

Monday, December 7 | posted in | 1 comments

How many times this week have you said to your self "I wish I had....." or "what if...." ? There isn't anything wrong with wishful thinking however sometimes that is all it is...a WISH.

Growing up your parents would always tell you to be happy with what you have and to be grateful for what is in your life. You don't know what you've got until its gone :D

Have you ever thought about trying to love the life you live and the people that are in it? Mindfulness is defined as a "calm awareness of one's body functions, feelings, content of consciousness, or consciousness itself."

You aren't going to live your life mindfully right after you read this blog entry; it is going to take some time. But everything in life is about progress so look at this as the beginning to mindful living and enjoying the simple pleasures in your life.


Nothing distracts us more than things that frustrate and grind those gears. If there is a way to avoid petty annoyances why not do it? Yes slow drivers are a bitch and your danish getting stuck in the vending machine can be pretty annoying but don't let silly little things be the definition of your day. Once the action has occurred reflect and let it go quickly.

Food For Thought

You shouldn't just eat to live....Hell if you made the food you need to savor it! Even if your meal was made by home-boy in the back kitchen who flipped it over and put it between buns, then gave it to you.....ENJOY IT! We always devour our food because we are in a hurry to do something else without thinking about food being one of life's simple pleasures that you can enjoy about 3 to 4 times a day.


Its a little off beat but sex is another simple pleasure in life that we have the ability to enjoy. This is one of those instances where its better with a regular partner but if doing it with different people gives you that sensation, so be it. We make sex so complicated sometimes when it can really be an easy simple process with meaning behind it or just a true PLEASURE feeling.

Seeing The Good In Others

Yes, yes, yes the news only reports the bad things going on in society. Bad incidents are brought to the forefront. But for every bad occurrence there's at least 2 good things that are going on somewhere. Seeing the good in others helps us see the good in ourselves which is another simple pleasure......a positive attitude
Be mindful of what people around you find amazing. Share your experiences with other people. Take the time out to ask someone what are things that made them happy today.


Oxygen is great! Taking the time to just take a deep breathe and let that oxygen fill your lungs especially if you are in-taking something that smells good. This is just a simple reminder of the most basic pleasure......LIFE
