Simple Things That Make Life Enjoyable

What simple things make life enjoyable for you?

The quality of this video really didn’t capture what I experienced but I hope I’ve captured in words what we all need to do from time to time and that is take time to appreciate the simple things.
For me, it was walking in my backyard, the cooler temperatures and watching lightning bugs:)

Your Daily Doable: Take a moment to reflect on something that makes life enjoyable. Chances are it’s going to be something really simple. Please share your takeaways in the comments below.

    [Transcript] This is Tim. I’m just finishing my walk for tonight and I thought I’d pause before I head back into the house. As you can see, the moon is coming out. It’s been a really hot day, but the rain that came cooled the temperatures. I’m going to turn this down a little bit so you can see hopefully.

    Tonight as I was walking, of course in June you start to see the lightning bugs or fireflies, whichever you call them, dancing around. It’s one of those things where you just need to pause and I need to pause from time to time and reflect on the simple things in life. Those are what make life enjoyable.

    As I’ve been walking around tonight enjoying the cool temperatures and just watching these lightning bugs over my yard, it’s just been real pleasant. I thought I’d share that with you and hope you’ll take a moment just to reflect on something in your life that makes it enjoyable. Chances are it’s going to be something really simple. I hope you have a good evening. Good night.

    Thank you Tim. It is moments like this that make me wish they could last forever and that we somehow could be a part of that peace. When I think about what heaven is like I wonder if we will not only be able to see it but be a part of it and to feel it. I know I am not articulating this well but I do remind myself at times like this to cherish the moment because someday it could and will be gone.

    These are two things I enjoy looking at as well! Fireflies and the moon! And the rain. We have had lots of rain lately and I love watching it fall. Not the wind so much! This is a good reminder when life gets complicated with overscheduling!
