10 Easy Things

Sometimes we become so swamped and put upon we forget that much pleasure and wellbeing can come from very simple, easy things. I ‘ll make a list of the 10 things I can really appreciate:
1. A good cup of coffee. I love the smell and taste.
2. Clean sheets.
3. Clean pyjamas.
4. Honey eaters trying to get the nectar from the fuchsias.
5. Really good quality, properly baked bread and butter.
6. The sight and sound of waves crashing on the shore…and the smell of the ocean.
7. Beautiful material which looks and feels good.
8. Cuddling a little child and reading them a story.
9. Laughing a lot with friends and family.
10. Curling up with a really good book.
Now I have done it, I realise I could have kept the list going. It wasn’t hard and there a so many things which are simple which I just plain enjoy and which make me feel really happy.
