I am a simple person. I like simple things.
I like the way a freshly made bed looks. I like the way a baby smells. I like the way a warm breeze feels on my skin.
I also like the way a cold beer tastes on a hot day. I like the way a good book feels in my hands. I like the way my dog sleeps at my feet.
In fact, I like just about everything about life. Except for one thing…
There’s always something that spoils the fun. There’s always something that gets in the way of enjoying the simple things in life.
It could be a bad day at work. It could be an argument with a friend. It could be worrying about money or health or any number of other things.
But whatever it is, it’s always there, lurking in the background, ready to ruin my day.
The good news is that I’ve learned to deal with it. I’ve learned to let go of the things that are beyond my control and to focus on the things that I can enjoy.
So if you’re having a bad day, remember that it’s not permanent. And try to focus on the simple things in life that make you happy.
