For a while now and due to some strange impulse, I have been making a list of some pleasures of life that go painfully unnoticed and unappreciated. I decided to jot down every moment or activity that feel insignificant while they’re happening but in retrospect, they’re pretty special.
It has been a month and these are all the things I call severely underrated and that they should be performed often and with more passion.
Freshly baked cookies
Hand written letters
Staring at the clouds
Driving your bike in the rain
Dancing in the kitchen
Your favorite song on the radio
Conversations on park benches
Hot tea on rainy days
Smell of books
A bowl of soup when you come down with flu
New pair of socks
Warming your hands inside the sleeves of your sweater
Dining out alone
Someone tucking your hair behind your ear
Grocery shopping for a special recipe
Rooftops at night
Midnight movie shows
Feel free to add anything you want to this list in the comment section. I’d be happy to know what other small pleasures of life exist in other parts of the world that I’m yet to experience.
Also, do let me know how many of the above things you’ve already experienced.
Let us take a step back and appreciate the little pleasures we are capable of creating and experiencing.
Let’s make this a long list of utter joy.
