Yesterday we were walking with the sun warming our faces and the leaves were raining down on us. I really wanted to hold my arms out and spin! Honestly! Do you ever feel like that? Do you ever get the urge to grab a passer by and dance as you're walking with your head phones in. Do you ever smile to the family that are playing together amidst the gorgeous sound of their children's laughter? Do you catch snowflakes on your tongue? Do you sit on the grass and make daisy chains? Or is it just me?!
I love simple things. I also love travelling and having a mobile phone but I don't ignore those simple things that we take for granted. There's enough badness casting shadows in this world so we have to appreciate the small stuff.
I'm going to share my top 20 list of simple things I appreciate and hope you share yours too,
So there you have it, I'm a bit of a day dreamer (My husband would say a big daydreamer!) and I'm always looking around. Time goes by so quickly and already I miss collecting leaves with my daughter and making collages, I miss counting snails as we walked to school. I miss those simple things but I'm glad I appreciated them.
I'm easily pleased and I'm quite likely to kick leaves at you if you're walking with me in the autumn, it's got to be done! This time of year always bring my husbands wise words of "you're going to kick a dog turd one of these days" every time I deliberately shuffle my way through the fallen leaves. I don't care.
So come on, indulge me, comment below with your most cherished simple things, who know's, maybe I'm not the only one cooing over a butterfly as it flutters past my head!
