Life's Prizes & Pleasures

Most of us miss out on life's big prizes. The Pulitzer. The Nobel. Oscars. Tonys. TOYMs. But we are eligible for life's small pleasures.

A pat on the back.
A good word.
A hug. (my favorite! )
A full moon.
A glorious sunset.
An empty parking space.
A great meal.
Hot soup.
Cold drink.
Ice cream.
Sweet mangoes.
Hot, fresh bread.
Doritos. (or place the brand name of your favorite junk food here )

There is plenty for all of us.

A friend shared this with me. I find it so true. Sometimes, life happening makes us forget just how good we got it. I wish everyone their small pleasures this weekend.

One of my pleasures will be watching some football at work. I'll take my client to the park and enjoy the Sun. I'll buy a yummy lunch and savor it's flavor under the trees. I still want my Oscar though. Maybe I'll clobber next years winner as they come out instead?

gnr8nrg: Aha! Watching some football while at work. Sweet! Now, now. Be a good sport about next year's Oscar winner. It could be you, you know. Lunch under the trees -- simple pleasure, indeed!
