TMT: The Joy of the Simple Things in Life

There’s something I learned last summer that stuck with me until now.

It’s that life is filled with love, which is what makes it more enjoyable. Love consists of happiness, and happiness is all around you. You are in control of your happiness. 

What brings most people joy? Beauty. Whether that be in the laughter of your best friend, of the snuggles with your fury friend. The innocence of a child, or the steam from your hot coffee. Seeing the beauty in situations brings joy.

And so, I believe we can be so much happier if we live with intention, and don’t take any moment for granted. I believe we can be happier if we truly enjoy our hot showers, and stop to close our eyes and feel the summer breeze. 

If we saw the beauty in the plants around us, the clouds, the squirrels and the birds, the architecture, the process of a coffee maker dripping coffee, the scent of blueberry muffins and the sourness of a lemon, the relief we feel on Fridays and the comfort of our fuzzy robes. 

If we just felt, truly indulged in the smallest things, we could be so much happier.

Life revolves around your perspective of it.

And so, choose to enjoy even the small things, to make your days brighter. This is how you’ll love life.
