Little Things

I was really taken with this passage that I read and I am wondering if I can also make more "CONSCIOUS" time to practice this in my life. I was also wondering if there were people here that were also interested in reporting back how little things mean a lot and make a big difference in their lives. I find inspiration from so many places and this passage is where I found some inspiration today. Please comment if you would like to go on a little journey of reporting back how little things make difference in your life. Nothing big, just a commenting on the little things that bring you pleasure that make you happy, that make you feel good in your life....if there's enough interest, let's go for can be as simple as leaving a comment weekly on a blog post (I believe in simplicity, making it easy and enjoying and cherishing life......can you relate....) My Monday Morning inspiration comes from Cheryl Richardson..... Here we go: I've been working on my next book, a memoir about the perils and pleasures of aging consciously. I'm doing my best to live each day awake and aware of the finiteness of life. As I make decisions, I keep asking, "If today were my last day on earth, would I be satisfied with this choice?" By doing so, I'm becoming acutely aware of what adds comfort, contentment, peace, and meaning to my life. I'm realizing some pretty interesting things. One thing is how little value I've attributed to the simple things that bring me immense joy - watching the twinkling white lights on the tree in our backyard, playing fetch with my cat (who thinks he's a dog), sleeping with an open window so I can hear the owls hoot at night, or listening to the rain without doing a damn thing but enjoying the sound. It's so easy to put all of our energy into what we've been trained to value -advancing a career, making money, building a business, or completing our to-do lists. In our drive to succeed, we tend to miss, (or dismiss) the events that bring us joy. They seem secondary, a reward after a hard days work, or a peripheral pleasure we happen to stumble upon. I'm making pleasure a primary goal. I've been tracking the little things that bring me joy every day for over a year now and it's always a surprise at what makes the list. Simple things. Tiny things. Things that often cost nothing at all. What if making space for pleasure in our busy, technology driven lives became a highly regarded goal? How would life be different if we valued peace and delight and joy as much as (or more than) striving to succeed? ~~~~~~ What if... the little things are the things that leave us breathless.... What if the little things are the big things after all.... What if we decide to take action like this..... Starting now, became to take note of the little things that make you smile. As you notice them, pay attention to how they make you feel. If they feel good, really good, attach value to them immediately. Tell yourself, "This is the kind of experience that matters. I want more of this in my life." Awareness is a powerful motivator for change. If you keep up this practice, you'll start to see things change, almost effortlessly. Are you inspired? Do you want to report back on those things that make you feel good? that make you feel grateful, happy, inspired....... I use the power of questions to help me continually allow God and his infinite universe help me to discover and re-discover how I am a creator of my world, how to focus on the things I want and how to keep moving forward toward that which makes me happy and feeling good..... My links provide access to my favorite Access tools! Please comment if you are interested in commenting weekly on those "little things" that impact your life. I love you IBO and wish you all the success AND joy that your heart can hold!
