There's a beautiful quote that goes, the secret of happiness you see is not found in seeking more, but in developing the capacity to enjoy less.

It's true that the more you have the more you want, but I've got a little secret to share with you today the magic happens when you hold on when you press, pause and see what you've already got all around you.

Your life is already so rich and full.

Sometimes you need to take a step back to remember that we're made to believe that life is all about those big moments.

Birthdays surprises holidays those wow moments, but the thing is: if your entire life is spent waiting for the next big wow, there will be a lot of time and days in between that feel, nothing more than mundane time spent.

Finding beauty in the simple moments is never time wasted.

So here are some of my favorite things that bring me great joy and remind me to slow down seeing the sunlight peeking through the curtains in the morning, a freshly made bed creaking floorboards in an old house, fresh, lemon water, frosty spring mornings, the sound of the birds, peaceful walks in nature.

The sound of rustling leaves perry cuddles with echo watching the raindrops roll down the glass, the sound of the rain hearing.

The word of the washing machine go around misty mornings arranging fresh flowers, the sizzle of a pan, as I cook my favorite meal, taking the time to make a peaceful environment for myself, candle lip baths, the flicker of a flame, the smell of freshly baked banana bread making the first morning cup of coffee for the day how the morning light falls in my home spring flowers and all their beauty and promise changing the bedding on a sunny day, washing swaying outside on the line fresh flowers, the rainbows that my light catcher makes long shadows in my home on an afternoon.

So, just take a little bit of time today to really sit and think about what it is that you really love in your life.

It can just be something so small and it doesn't have to be something big.

As I said in this video, you know.

Sometimes the big things are the ones we really look forward to.

But I think, if you cherish those simple calm moments, then your life becomes a whole lot different.

Instead of looking forward to the weekend and all the big plans you've got and dreading the five days in between where you've got to go to work.

You could really look forward to every evening coming home and getting on the sofa, putting your blankets on and just getting really cozy and happy, or maybe it's the opposite.

Maybe you've got you know social things and maybe you're gonna see family and friends and have really nice long phone calls with people.

Everyone is different and everyone's life looks completely different, but it's those little tiny things in daily life that really make life worth living because without them it gets to be very monotonous.

You know it's the same routine over and over and over again without those little tiny sparks of joy.

You know it's really hard to keep keep carrying on forward and feeling really positive, because you've got all these big things going on, but sometimes those big things don't make up for all of the other parts of your life.

So just taking the time to enjoy those little simple moments is gonna really change your life.

It's definitely changed my life, so so much as well- and you know in this video I spoke about all those tiny little things like the creaking of floorboards.

I mean it is something that you might not actually notice.

It might be something that irritates you.

You know if you've got wobbly walls, it's just about really taking in your environment and instead of looking for the negatives instead look for the positives.

You know those little sounds in the morning when no one else is awake, the creaking of the floorboards as you walk down the stairs and then the little clink of the coffee.

As you um, you know spoon it out out of the container and you put the kettle on the stand and it makes that really satisfying noise, as you click the button down they're the little things that just you know, put a smile on my face.

Definitely but I'd love to know down below what the little things are in your life that you really enjoy.

There might be things that you intentionally enjoy, or there might be things that this video has struck for you and you think.

Actually I really do like that.

You know I tend to go outside every morning for a little wonder in the garden and it's so frosty at the moment and that's just so beautiful.

I really do love the seasons and I think that honoring the seasons and enjoying every single season, whether it's good or bad, that can really change things up because she noticed the little changes.

You know.

I've noticed this week that it's been much colder than it was last week, but I've also noticed the mornings have just been cloudless and it's been beautiful, but as well when it's raining, that's not such a bad thing.

You know it's different, it's just different and I think noticing that is amazing and noticing how much the creatures outside love the rain.

It's kind of mindfulness.

I think in a way.

So it's just being mindful of the world around you and how those little things impact everybody else as well, and so, if you fill your own cup you'll be able to overflow into others as well, and I think that so much of society today focuses far too much on the superficial things in life, and I really think that just living your own life and trying to enjoy as much of it as you possibly can.

That is going to make you the happiest that you can be, and it's going to ensure that you can feel happy and that you can make others happy too, which I think to me is the meaning of life.

You know we're here to build each other up, not break each other down.

So there's my little nugget of wisdom for the day.

I really hope that you enjoyed this video.

My aim was to share little snippets of my videos from the past.

I think it's about a year now that I've just really enjoyed, and I'm so thankful and grateful that I get to share this with you.

I'm grateful that I'm able to share simple living in a way that's enjoyable and enables you to slow down.
