Daily Joys and Simple Pleasures

Daily Joys and Simple Pleasures


Why Focus on Things That Are So Simple and Ordinary?

I am thrilled that you have found my words here today.

The world is full of complexity, demand, scheduled requirements, needs, desires and things of varying volume that demand your attention.  I know.  I live in the same world, on the same “rock” as you.

“How do you stay happy in such a busy, demanding life?” 
“How can you seem so calm when you are struggling with certain issues?” 

I’ve been asked forms of these questions for years.  You will discover answers to those questions each day that you visit my blog.  In the midst of the press, I pause and cherish the DAILY JOYS AND SIMPLE PLEASURES.  Really.  I do. 

I stay connected to my larger purpose and my deepest contentment by staying close to the simplest pleasures of my days.  Of course I work toward the larger issues and the bigger picture.  Step by small step, every  day.  In that process, I keep my sense of humor and delight by seizing upon and celebrating the readily available treats that are served up upon the platter of everyday experiences.

If you want daily reminders of how precious are the simple pleasure of life – join with me in this community.  I will do my best to make our travels together worth your while.

I do believe that being simple and enjoying every moment of what you have will keep your feet always on the ground.
