Simple joys

Life is filled with many simple joys to enjoy. There are events and special occasions to celebrate once in a while.  But the simple joys we experience every day in life are a constant pleasure that keep us going. We no need to spend much. They are shattered all over our life, from wake up to asleep and even watching moon at midnight is simple joy.  Waking up early and watching the sunrise (even it was occasionally like me who check while only began to travel at early morning) there is something magic in the moisture air and bearing tender sunbeam at dawn causes great energy throughout the day.

Simple joy
enjoying a pleasant moment amid swinging nature
If sunrise enriches energy, the sunset is quite pleasure and simple joy watching the different hues on sky. Sunrise and sunset are everyday task simply never get bored even they are similar with familiar sky. There is something that never lost zeal how much time drink as beverage. Sipping coffee is an energy booster always and there is something eternal in its flavor that desire to drink often. I am not addict to coffee and it isn't a matter if I haven’t drink coffee for days but the desire will always rest inside and never want to miss a chance of sipping.

Expose to cool breeze is sometime caress the innermost and inspire a lot. I really want to say wind is my inspiration and it bears immense joy carrying numerous fragrance and sound of birds. It changes from time to time and landscape to mountains, but I enjoy the simple cool breeze however it blows. Bird watching is another simple joy and yet filled with surprise each time reveal to a new species of bird in neighborhood and travel to Western Ghats inspired me a lot looking for birds.

Memories are a wonderful thing cherish forever, sitting solely on couch or swinging, we experience a joy, a world that could only be alive at past. I love afternoon silence and there couldn't be a best time recalling our sweet memories and it is a moment I feel quite inspired. Visiting beach is true joy, watching the restless waves kissing soft sand and essence of peanut or bajji flow in air against pretty women diverting the attention. Music is a consoling fact and listening to melody or a good peppy number is simply joy.

Looking at beautiful flowers and flow of stream, fragrance of earth and droplets of rain, gazing through windows and inhaling fresh air and tasting ice cream and warmth in cold are simple joys overlap by dreams. Imagination is a boon especially for those immobile we live a normal life and become super heroes in our dreams. We achieve many things from our comfort seat and if not dreams and imagination we miss a great joy.

Jeevan you really do a great job of noticing the joy in the everyday beauty all around you. I love sunsets and sunrises equally but in different ways. There's a lot of beauty in this world isn't there?

One thing that the world has always failed to understand is that no matter what a person's condition, they can (and they do) enjoy life. The part of our mind that tells us that we are happy, in the company of loved ones and in a good place at a good time is present in everyone.

Seeing you, Jeevan ji, I feel sorry for the many able bodied people (including me, sometimes) who think too much about what they do not have and not what they have.

Small pleasures of life are the most cherished ones , Jeevan!

Srinivas said...

I am glad I read this post right now -- very timely for me. Sunrise/sunset, cool breeze, flowers, memories on lazy afternoons... these are all life's little pleasures, inDEED. And sometimes in the heat of our everyday, we forget the simple fact that life's greatest gifts belong to everyone in general. Thank you for this, Jeevan.

How lovely to enjoy the cool morning breeze. It is available only for those couple of hours!.

I also love to go on the terrace and enjoy that cool morning atmosphere. I feel a great loss, if I do not experience this daily.

You are near the beach, and the breeze will be more moist and cool. It is a simple pleasure, but cannot be bought.

Enjoy!
