big bear hugs

I learned this from LeoBabauta, a man of action himself and the creator of Zen Habits, a brilliant blog about finding simplicity in the daily chaos of our lives. “… find little, simple pleasures and sprinkle them throughout your day. They are not big things, but each simple pleasure can translate to a great day if you use them right.

So, here is my list. [some of them are actually big, still they bring peace in mind, smile in my face and light up my spirit]

  • a cup of hot coffee
  • taking a long relaxing shower
  • singing with my youngest
  • barefoot in grass
  • yellow paprika
  • listening to good music in the car
  • the feeling after alkaline exercise
  • a slice of lemon in my drink bottle
  • write my journal
  • read a good book
  • movie time and popcorn with my boys
  • barefoot in the sand
  • watching the sunrise
  • writing for my blog
  • before bed ritual with my youngest, hug and kisses before fall asleep, and watch their peaceful faces as they asleep
  • vanilla smell of scented candle
  • watching the sunset
  • reading time with my boys
  • hugging my boys tightly
  • see the expression and gesture of my boys during our conversation
  • dark chocolate
  • a long conversation with a dear friend
  • looking at pictures of my boys
  • being lazy on Sunday
  • big bear hugs

Promise I will add this list as I go along.. 😉

one person’s pleasures aren’t always pleasures for others. After I made the list, actually I become more aware of the things I do. Guess I’m still analyzing how it really made me feels 😀 since I usually don’t really realize many things I do, mind wondering, think about other things as I do something. It works though.. more often I slowed down to enjoy the things I do..

thank you for such wonderful advice.. 🙂
