★Three "Little Things" In Life You Enjoy

Just had a random thought about something positive to think about :)

Name three “little” things in life that you really just enjoy so much.

1. Going grocery shopping – I actually LOVE doing this on days when it’s not crazy and crowded. Something about picking out fresh food for a delicious meal that makes me so happy (perhaps the underlying gratitude that I’m able to have such a thing?)

2. Seeing a person smile back at you first thing in the morning. Great way to start the day!

3. Saying “Hi” to my best friend practically everyday. It’s things like this that keep our friendship going strong!

BTW – feel free to come in and add to your list. Don’t limit yourself to three! :)

1. wool socks cos my fee are always cold
2. herbal teas
3. spooning with my husband on the couch
4. sunrises
5. sunsets
6. the smell of peonies

1. Laying down and having my kitty sit on my tummy purring. There is something so calming about listening to my cat purr.

2. Reading a good book that captures my attention so deeply that I lose track of time.

3. Watching my children sleep. They look like little angels – and its the only time they are quiet!! :)

I am living in many dimensions at once; the appearance of being trapped in time and space is only an illusion.

My husband had double knee replacement surgery 6 weeks ago. Prior to this he was unable to walk without a cane and was in incredible pain. His legs were so weak that they had to be straightened before inserting his new knees and his upper thighs had begun to atrophy.

Today he is able to walk almost exclusively with his cane and should be able to walk unassisted within 6-8 weeks.

We actually went out for a short ride yesterday for the first time in weeks and tomorrow he will resume coming with me on our errands.

I am grateful:

That the things we took for granted are now moments to treasure
I have my fun partner in crime shopping with me again
Every precious moment we are together

1. My kid’s giggles
2. Snow storms!!
3. naps

1. hot water bottles
2. fresh air
3. good friends

1. surprise gifts!
2. great co-workers
3. snuggling with my dog

my cat!!

Poseidon drowns Helios;
Painting living, changing shades
Salacia kisses my hair
Dionysus and Apollo blend panacea

Back against a porch post
Menace crawls the sky
Clean air cools my skin
Chimes dance and sing in the wind song
I am full of wonder!

watching the sunrise seeing a rainbow hugging my kids my dogs face wheni say ,do you want a walk

The love and laughter shared when I see my brother &/or sister.
When I get the rush of a new creative idea or project.
Leisurely taking in the smells, sounds and beauty of the waves at the lake.
When remembering and being grateful knowing that I have been and will continue to be safe and blessed by my universe.

1. Eating dinner with my husband and daughter (and making it beforehand).
2. Creative pursuits: Drawing/painting/playing music.
3. An engaged, productive day at work.

Walking my dogs around the park with a friend

Going for a drive in the country with the windows down

Star gazing, using the telescope and searching the sky

A heating pad at my feet at night when I go to bed, my toes get so cold but when the pad is warmed up before I hit the bed it is just heaven.

2. Sitting on my sofa watching a fire crackle when it’s cold outside.

3. Making a delicious meal and knowing that it’s healthy and delicious.

1. A quiet home where I can relax away from teh daily hum of traffic and away from noisy and foul words.

2. A shower chair to sit on when I’m unable to stand for my shower.

3. For the many crafts that I fill my time with.


1) a bath with lavender oil and candles

2)seeing the first snowdrops

3)listening to the music Canon

Hey MCM! I thought you’d never get here! We hope to share some more of your poetry too! We all live in the neighborhood of open mindedness, near the corner of faith and gratitude; aren’t you in the heart of bmindful?:D Love, jan

1. My children – The way their eyes sparkle, their dimples when they giggle, their sweet little voices. They are precious to me :)

2. Feeling the sunshine on warm early summer days

3. Drinking a warm, frothy, delicious blackberry mocha latte early in the mornings on my way to work.

1. The sound of my friends laughing.

2. Sharing a bite to eat with good company.

3. Good health! (Not so little I suppose :) )

I am SOOO very happy that people are enjoying this thread! Please keep it going with your wonderful thoughts and experiences!

brushing my Golden retriever’s hair, it feels so smooth and silky.
hugging the love of my life and smelling his skin.
feeling the sun on my skin, then dipping into the cool sea water.

In response to themadcookieman’s post:

No we don’t but it is a good wish! We surely would have a great time. Great music, good food, good company and inspiring poetry! Ah and a delicious glass of fabuluos wine while watching the fire crackle in the fireplace!!!

1) seeing my washing drying in the wind

2) seeing a butterfly

3) a hug

1. after work…easing into part 2 of life(:
2. creating things I enjoy … which assist my spirit, and enjoying things others create
3. enjoy peaceful moments to see what thoughts and feelings arise

I like chatting with a friend while having a hot cup of a favorite beverage… tea or tiny cup of cinnamon coffee (a little concoction I make) (I’ll come up with a couple more) (:

All that matters is how I choose to spend this moment.

I am living the Divine plan which includes wonderful health, wealth, happiness, and perfect self-expression for me now

1) Life
2) My Faith
3) Loving and Blessing others and cinnamon coffee of course :)

In response to Nancee1953’s post:

1. my pillow
2. a wonderful night sleep
3. listening to wonderful music & inspiring videos

1) The dawn of the new day and the promise it brings.
2) Sharing laughter and smiles
3) All types of food from Thai to Bahamian and everything in between

1) my rest(:
2) my waking up(:
3) and like Nancee shared: the promise of a new day

Life, each and every day that I wake.
Choice, to choose how that day will be
Coffee, to start that day! :)

Heart Filled with Gratitude, for this journey of my life. I open my whole and holy Self to receive the blessings of Source.

I’m in on the coffee.
A good belly laugh.
Getting a big task checked off the to do list.

“The trick to being happy isn’t to live in the know, it’s to live in the mystery.”

1) Life or should I say the journey, the surprise twists and turns, maneuvers and ultimate delights.

2) Family (biological, church and of course Bmindful), friends, sharing laughter and smiles.

3) Nurturing my spirit, body and mind.

1) Homemade spicy chili that warms my tummy
2) Hot bubble baths
3) Candle light and starlight shining brightly in the night
