We don’t always appreciate the joys to be found in the ordinary little things in life.
But if we take time to appreciate the little and ordinary things in our lives, they may lead us to or become the big joys that we dream of. Gratitude and appreciation are magic keys to the kingdom of happiness, joy and a meaningful life. I hope that you find little joys in many aspects of your life.
Ode to Little Boys and Little Joys
Little joys are like little boys
Despite their simple appearance
They hold many surprises and hidden joys
Like any gift, they must be unwrapped to be seen
This means taking off the blinders of adulthood
Responsibility, “seriosity”, busyness and judgement
(the king of dream and joy killers)
So next time a little boy presents himself to you
Stop and take a clear gaze into his soul
You may find past trails, tears or whispers of your own childhood
Or you might find new paths to joy, curiosity and playfulness
Whatever you find, please remember to appreciate the little joys in life
Be they sunsets, flowers, tea or little boys
Dedicated and inspired by a great blog on being a lover of the little things by Hanna Brencher. Thanks, muse brad
