I knew a lady that bought herself a candy bar and a record every Saturday. The lady was a pensioner of modest means, but seemed to enjoy life. She shared rented space and shared a kitchen. She also traveled and attended the theater. She seemed to know exactly what was important to her and how to spend her money.
I always remember this woman and I try to remember to plan little pleasures into my day and my life for myself and the people close to me. What are your little guilty indulgences, or wholesome pleasures that make the mundane disappear and the sweet life a reality?
I tried to give up coffee, but I found that my morning was just not fun so I still have my coffee. I bought special little creamers and had to make a cup as soon as I got home. I try to remember to turn on the music when I have my boring chores day. I keep a bottle of a very special brandy for a time when I want something special, or need a "stiffener. These are a couple of my mood boosters. I also have my social sites to visit when I feel like connecting and sharing. I subscribe to a weekly magazine and read it with my coffee and other times. I also have a friend that calls me to walk or go to the gym and that makes my exercise goals a lot more fun. These are a couple of my mood boosters.I think you get the idea.
I think you get the idea. So what are your little pleasures that make life just a whole lot better?
