The Softer Side Of Life

Cotton candy kisses
Dancing in the rain
Holding hands with your loved one
Getting on the floor and playing with your kids
Chocolate cake
Taking deep breaths
Being aware of our surroundings
Embracing nature
Trying to eat ice cream before it drips down your hand
Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwiches
Laughing until your bladder gives way
Receiving an unexpected smile or compliment
Drinking hot cocoa on a blistering cold day
Drinking fresh lemonade on a scorching hot day
Loving who you truly are
Being encouraged & Encouraging others
Letting go of the past and feeling relaxed afterward
Hearing the laughter of children playing
Holding a newborn baby
Creating any kind of art
Reading an excellent book
Drinking a hot cup of tea at sunrise
Lighting a scented candle and sitting in silence
Giving thanks

These things make me smile. These are the things that fill a life with sheer joy. I encourage anyone reading this to find Your softer side of life and fully enjoy. It's the little things that bring light to the very big things. Nurture the little things each chance you get. Try not to rush through life. Take little steps. This way you'll never miss anything. Don't just exist.
Fully live and love The Softer Side Of Your Life.

  19. Softer side of my life:
    The smell of a baby
    my mom's aging hands
    a walk in the morning sun
    a nap in the middle of the afternoon
    a surprise text or email
    the smell of spring
    puffy clouds viewed from a plane
    a package in the mail
    a touch from a lover
    a whisper from a friend
    chocolate kisses and M&Ms
    home made cards from grandchildren


You bless me with your presence! Tabitha♥
