You hear the saying “it’s the simple things in life” and it’s totally true. The older I get, the more I appreciate all the little things. What really put things in perspective for me, was when I moved to Philadelphia almost 2 years ago. I only brought what could fit in my car, no furniture, only the essentials, all my clothes that I actually wear fit into 2 suitcases (1 large and 1 medium suitcase that I was allowed to take as my own from my family).
I may only be in my mid-twenties, but I am amazed at how different kids lives are now. Technology at our fingertips, babies start playing with ipads and phones. While there are great things about the technology we have now and believe me, I love/am addicted to my phone, I also enjoy some of the simple things like…
…curling up on the couch reading and journaling
(side note: after not having a couch for a year, I really really appreciate just having a couch to sit on)
I believe my triangle pose is actually improving, as in my top arm is not at a weird angle, it looks straight!
…building up a sweat at the gym
(Did you know that Nickelodeon plays old cartoons at 5am?! I was watching The Angry Beavers while biking yesterday morning!!)
…spending time in the kitchen putting together dinner
(loving these turkey lettuce wraps)
…coming home from work and immediately changing into workout clothes (whether working out or not!)
…not having any commitments after work so I can take my time walking and enjoy a quiet evening
…enjoying the sunshine as Spring is approaching. I even tried to run a bit after work yesterday, which ended up with mostly walking but I really enjoyed the fresh air and not having to sniffle or warm up my nose.
I love that the days are getting longer and the sun is out now. The sun truly changes my mood and even if these current above average, record high temps don’t stick around, I will be enjoying them as much as I can. Always remember to appreciate the little things in life.
