Pin It

I’m going to take a break from telling stories and offering instruction today and simply appreciate.

Over the weekend I realised the power of the little things. It’s the little things that make life so, so sweet.

In my next blog I’m going to tell you why it’s so important to employ an ‘attitude of gratitude’, especially when you’re making the move from corporate to passion.

But for now, I’m just going to appreciate the little things like…

A Sunday afternoon nap in the pouring rain

That first hint of sun on your face as you step out into your day

That first sip of your favourite coffee or herbal tea

That cheeky smile on your niece’s face when she’s just about to test her boundaries

That cool southerly dancing on your cheek after a balmy day

BBQ get togethers with that special crew of friends

Long, lingering kisses with the person you love

That indulgent, decadent desert after an already spectacular meal

Choc tops at the movies

Choc tops dipped with popcorn at the movies

Your child’s laughter

Putting your coat on for the first time in the lead in to cooler months

Putting your first pair of shorts on in the lead in to warmer months

Climbing into a freshly made bed with new, crisp linen

Putting your bare feet in the soft, cushy grass

Finding the space for a loooong soak in a soothing bath

Fairy bread

Smile from an absolute stranger

Help from an absolute stranger

A lady bug finding its way to your shoulder and just begging you to make a wish

Stray eyelashes found on cheeks, also begging you to make a wish

A phone call from a distant friend

A nurturing hug from your mum (the kind that only she knows how to give)

An assuring pat on the back from your dad

The sand through your toes at the beach

Backyard cricket

Slip n slides and running through sprinklers

‘Clicking’ straight away with a new friend

Wiling away time with an old one

The smell of a summer downpour on blistering hot roads

Losing yourself enough to play like a kid, just for a moment

Taking your shoes off at the end of a loooong day

Ticking that very last thing off your to do list

Your mum still thinking your cool enough to hang out with

And last but not least, shoes. (That one’s for you girls!)

What would you add to this list? I would love to hear from you in the comments section!

With love
