Bask in the delights of the day.

Please reflect and share. How does this play out in your life?

We’re usually busy trying to accomplish things. Some of our to do’s may be intended to help create pleasurable experiences. But often we’re caught up in achieving rather than enjoying.

Even when we’re on task, there are things to enjoy in the moment. Birdsong, a good cup of coffee, companionship, favorite music, the satisfaction of physical labor, a juicy piece of fruit, comfortable clothing—there a many small joys to brighten the moment. The more we notice, seek out, and savor these pleasure, the more satisfying our lives will be.

Today’s message tells me to enjoy life’s pleasures right now. Two of my mother’s favorite sayings were “Carpe diem” and “Gather ye rosebuds while ye may”. She was a generally cheerful and happy soul as a result of her outlook on life. Hers is an example I can emulate for my benefit. My life is in this very moment is wondrous!

How about you? Do you relish the day’s minor pleasures?
