Enjoy simple pleasures

Watched a movie that had this lovely scene about simple pleasures - Admiring the moon rise, Dancing in the rain and playing with little children...

The twosome were trying to escape the gangsters who were literally after their lives; still it was nice that the director had this segment of them enjoying the simple pleasures in life. Whatever be the situation, after the first shock or anger or anxiety or horror of it fades a little and you have life to get on with, it is these simple things that give you a chance to smile and generally forget the nightmarish thoughts for few moments.

I think it is important to habitually make time to cherish and enjoy simple pleasures in life - enjoying an ice cream candy, watching the moonrise, making a sand castle with a child, smiling when you see a child, feeling the wind on your face with closed eyes, listening to soft music when you cook or eat, dancing in the rain... the list can go on...

Do not forget the simple pleasures in the mad rush of life's countless demands that face you each day. - Staple thought

Totally agreed! even when I am in the worst of moods when I catch a glimpse of the distant sun set in my rear view mirror it brightens me up! :)... I remember that song from Sound of Music :)
"Rain drop on roses and whiskers on kittens...."

Some thoughts, impressions and memories are powerful in life, those will have both positive and negative effect on our moods. Some of these are related to incidents, people, what ever... Sometimes these feelings don't consult with us, all the tremors and tsunamis we go thru in our minds erupt those sleepy volcanos and result in the damaging ash clouds (alright I admit I am living in the Iceland nightmare ... excuse the expressions). Of course, mind is a beautiful thing which heals by taking advantage of the ultimate weapon TIME.

I love reading such blogs... thank you!
