Life is comprised of many different moments and memories. And it in those moments that we will find happiness and fulfillment. The reason why I say this is that if we can find the wonderful, the magic, the reasons to smile in all the little moments and memories in life, then we have truly found the key to living a happy life.
Those little moments happen much more than those big moments and htings. So find the magic in the every day, the wonderful in the normal, the miracle in the mundane, then nothing can keep us down.
I truly love my life.This place where I am, and doing what I am doing. But it is all those little moments that make life worth while for me. Those perfect meals, the favorite song playing, perfect weather or a beautiful sunset. It is texting with a friend, sharing laughs and stories, late night conversations, making plans, building a life here, in this place. It is getting settled in, unpacked and making this place a home. It is mowing the yard, drinking a tall cold glass of water, or a good glass of wine.
It is enjoying a good movie or TV show, wrapping up in a favorite blanket on a comfy couch, it is sharing little moments and thoughts. It is making dreams, working hard, playing harder and wanting more, then resting well.
I sat outside tonight and was bursting with thankfulness for this wonderful life. For the beautiful night, for the wine, for my little backyard, and this happy little house of mine. I have everything for which I have wanted and prayed. And that is quite extraordinary.
It is all of those little things combined that make one big happy life. It is the combination of all of those little moments – that’s the secret to the fountain of youth, because being happy is the way to keep a young heart.
Life is short, take the time to not only notice, but to appreciate and fall in love with those little things in life. Because all those little things add up big time.
