The Simple Things In Life

Hello Everyone! 
 
 
We all know that life can keep us busy, and sometimes our daily schedule can be hectic and stressful. Today I bring to you all another inspirational post about what I consider the simple things in life. I guess I consider this as an inspirational post because it's positive.
 

1. Praying and Reading the Bible
 
I actually consider this a major part of my life.  I pray daily and when I need encouragement, peace, and inspiration I read the Bible.

2. Have a Girls Day with my mom

What can I say I'm a mama's girl lol. I love spending time with my mom. Whether it's watching movies, shopping, or just talking,  I cherish the mother and daughter bond we have.

3. Spend Time with my Best Friend

I actually just mentioned my bestie two posts ago on June 8 since it was National Best Friend's Day. Even though life can make people busy, I make time for my bestie (and other people I love and care about) Spending time with him is always awesome!! My other best friend from college lives in another state I talk/text to her often as well.

4. Eat Ice Cream

Ice cream is one of my favorite cool treats to eat especially during the Summertime!  There's nothing like a yummy bowl of cookies and cream ice cream!

5. Watch a Good Movie or Read a Good Book

Who says you have to have to go to movie theater? Sometimes I like to stay in and watch a DVD from my collection. I'm not neglecting reading, but I just haven't read a book lately lol.

6. Take a Selfie

This is pretty explanatory, there's nothing wrong with embracing yourself! 

7. Sleep in on a Rainy Day/ Take a Relaxing Bath

When possible I try to sleep in when it's raining outside. If that's not possible I like to take a relaxing bath from time to time. 

8. Laugh and Smile

Life is full of enough stressors, so I try to see the good in life. It's good to incorporate laughter and smiles because life isn't supposed to be filled with misery.

9. Work on a Project (or finish a project)

Crocheted Granny Squares before I finished my mom's Mother's Day gift last month. See Mother's Day post for the full blanket

 

Project can't be so fun! For those of you who follow my blog, know that I love to crochet. I also drafted a cookbook containing my recipes and my mama's recipes. Now I just need to print the pages and put it in a binder. Who knows what project I'll work on next, I love to stay busy with homemade and DIY stuff!

10. Do Something Nice for Someone

I find one of the most gratifying and humble things in life is to do something kind for others. I think it's awesome when people pay it forward. The smallest nice gesture just might make someone's day.


That's my list of my simple things in life. What do you consider the simple things in life?
