A walk on the beach. Dinner with friends. A good book. A warm bath. Enjoying nature in your backyard or community. Sitting in stillness. Dancing to music.
All of the above, and so much more, are examples of life’s simple pleasures.
Sometimes we think that we need some sort of grand gesture, some type of extravagance, to feel like we are living a full life. It can be hard to fully embrace that the simple things in life are those that most fully fill our hearts.
That’s the magic and beauty of the concept. By being, simply being, in the simplicity of it all, we have the big wide space to embrace the fullness of life. To fully take in the majesty of a sunset, the soulful connection with friends and ourselves, to deeply experience the softness of our pet’s coat or the fragrance of a blooming flower.
In the stillness and simplicity of it all, we are free to go deep within ourselves and experience. To learn more about ourselves, nurture, relax, and just simply be.
So, the next time you are “just going for a walk” or are looking for a way to give yourself the gift of fullness, take a moment and allow the simple pleasure to be fully embraced by your soul. Your heart will thank you for it!
