    There are a good many people out there

    who can't find satisfaction unless they are spending large sums of money on material things. I honestly think those people will probably never find anything truly satisfying in life. For me, 'big' is not necessary at all. All I need are things like a good cup of coffee that I...

    The More I Understand The More In Awe I Become

    Appreciating simple things.  What are the simple things in my life that make my life so special. I enjoy watching a wallaby with a baby joey in its pouch eating my favourite plants in my garden.  I do not like the results of my garden.  I have a choice to scare it...

    I love when I walk outside

    and can tell it has either just stormed or is about to. Something about the smell and tension in the air is wonderful.

    What can be more beautiful

    than the kiss of a lover, waking up to bird song in the morning, you child excitedly shouting "daddy, daddy, daddy" when you get home from work. There are so many simple beautiful things in life that I am sad for those that go through life blind to them every day.

    Dream Big. Live Small.

    Growing up, my parents instilled in me and my siblings the joy that can be derived from the simple things that surround us.  I posted in one of the other experience groups how my parents, during the Summer, disconnected television service, forcing us to find pleasure in...

    Things like a good cup of coffee in the morning,

    talking to friends and family about anything and everything, a sunny day, hearing a favorite song on the radio when I wasn't expecting to. They may be simple things, but to me, they make life beautiful in between the big things.

    I suppose my appreciation of the simple things

    in life began very early in life with some of the many lessons learned-taught by the belt or switch. I and my sisters learned the value of the dollar. If you don't work then you don't eat. If you put in a full day at work then expect your reward of a full paycheck at the end of...

    1. Sometimes, God leads you to do difficult

    things, not because He wants to make your life difficult, but because He has breakthrough for you. He wants you show you that His grace is enough even if you don’t think you are.2. It’s never too late for anything— to go back to God, to start reading books, to start...

    after a shopping trip with all of the new things I bought. It's worth it to spend a little on the things that make you happy. Just wearing that new shirt out in public or running in those new tennis shoes makes me feel more confident. Life is too short not to enjoy the little...

    It takes rain to appreciate dry weather ,

    I'm so delighted of what I got this morning.

    The driver of my boss handed me a white envelope. When I opened it, a check amounting to 50,000 pesos ($ 1,142). There's a note attached to the check saying." To: MY SISTER & PARTNER, ENJOY SHOPPING... Thank you LORD for the blessing!!

    It's summer here in the UK,

    and when the weather is nice, I love to sit out in my garden first thing in the morning. Just me, a hot cup of coffee, and the early birds. I'm up at five for work, so everything is so peaceful. It gives me time to reflect and relax.

    There are many simple pleasures in life I truly

    appreciate. For instance a simple cold glass of water, so refreshing. A good meal so satisfying after a long day. An unexpected smile from a stranger, it brightens my day. A nice cool breeze on a hot day, it is soothing. Watching snow fall, just a pretty sight until the...

    that I love him for him. I want to hold his hand, hug him, cuddle with him, feel him, enjoy life with him. I want to lay down on the grass, look up at the sky, dream, relax, be happy because he's beside me. Not many understand that love does not always mean you can talk...

    Sometimes it takes sadness to know happiness,

    noise to appreciate silence, and absence, to value presence. maby once whatever it is is gone then you'll appreciate it better.

    There's something I like to do at night when the house is all quiet. It may sound strange to some. I carefully open my son's bedroom door, so as not to wake him, and I stand there for a while and I watch him sleep. I watch his breathing, the movement of the blankets from...

    I truly appreciate the simple things in life

    because it sometimes shows how much a person cares for you and how much you care for that person. I believe the simple things come from the heart.
