“Perfect happiness is a beautiful sunset, the giggle of a grandchild, the first snowfall. It’s the little things that make happy moments, not the grand events. Joy comes in sips, not gulps.”
– Sharon Draper
As the saying goes…God is in the detail.
Living a life you love has much to do with your day-to-day experiences. Of course, the big things like what you do with your time, who you spend it with, and the like, matter, but sometimes even when things aren’t going the way you’d like them to, the small things can make a big difference.
“Little things seem nothing, but they give peace, like those meadow flowers which individually seem odorless but all together perfume the air.”
– Georges Bernanos
Today’s principle is a natural extension of my evening last night. Enjoying life’s simple pleasures, whether it’s spending time with your pet, cooking a good meal when everything around you is chaos, indulging in a little aroma therapy, or enjoying the beauty of the first big snowfall, make every day a special day.
