Fridays are so legit. They give me warm fuzzies inside and make me want to be a happier person. You know what though? I often forget to appreciate some of the smaller things in life. I watched a YouTube video the other day of a guy that was freakin’ out during a “double rainbow” spotting, granted he was probably on some sort of drug, but nonetheless he still was appreciative of something as insignificant as a rainbow. So today I share with you all, some of the small details of life I often forget to appreciate.
For those of us that live in a developed country, we often forget roughly 1/3 of the world’s population are malnourished. While I debate having the Whiskey River BBQ Chicken Burger or the Chicken Salad Sandwich, there are over a billion people just hoping they get access to clean water. Today I’ll make a conscious effort to appreciate the ability to feed myself on demand.
Yup, I’m guilty of taking GN for granted. We’ve dated for 4 years. Been engaged for seven months. And are 30 days away from tying the knot. I want to be a pretty freakin’ awesome husband and the best way I know to do that is to tell her how much I appreciate her. While I may never understand why she loves flowers so much, I find it important to meet that need and surprise her with the occasional bouquet. I’m convinced the three ways to make a woman feel loved are words of affirmation, flowers, and a coach purse 😉
I grew up in Seattle. Obviously this means I am use to rainy weather. After living in San Diego for the last seven years, I’ve almost forgot what the stuff looks like. That was until yesterday. While everyone else I knew was b*tching about the crappy weather, I couldn’t help delight in the gray clouds and falling rain. It was a nice change of pace and much welcomed.
Yes, bagles. I bought them from the grocery store this last week and I gotta tell you, my mouth is in bagel heaven. I’m totally diggin’ the cinnamon raisin bagel and cream cheese combination right now. I haven’t bought them in probably three years, but you can guarantee they will be on the shopping list the next couple of trips. Mmmm… I think I’ll have one right now.
Alright, so there are a billion more things I’m thankful for (puma socks, craigslist, dove cucumber and green tea body soap, weekends), but I’ll shut up now and turn the mic over to you…
I know it’s not thanksgiving, but I’d love to hear some of the “smaller” things you forget to appreciate
Oh and here is that double rainbow video I was talking about…
