Satisfying Moments


Life is full of many surprises. Above all, it’s full with many simple pleasures. Some that I take for granted, some that I don’t appreciate enough. And finally, some that just happens to happened. Today, I’m going to share a few the notes I made over the last few years in my “Positive Thoughts/Memories” book.

  1. It’s not about the food you eat, but the people you share the food with.
  2. That moment when you find extra money you hid away.
  3. When you and your friend unanimously sing together to the song playing on the radio.
  4. Laughing so hard over nothing, but just because you wanted too and needed a good laugh.
  5. Going on a road trip without a destination with your friends just because you all aren’t really going anywhere but needed to escape for moment.
  6. When your friend is too busy reading a text/texting and almost walk into the opposite gender’s restroom.
  7. Realizing that you and your friends are lost, but just happy to be together.
  8. Laughing at your friend when they trip then asking them if they’re okay. Of course it’s payback because they did the same to you.
  9. Waking up late to day that you have nothing plan for.
  10. Receiving a letter/card in the mail.
  11. The morning when your dog decides not to bark at 6 am and lets you sleep in.
  12. The morning/night when you can just reheat leftovers for a meal because cooking is too much work and so is driving.
  13. Having a marathon watching your favorite shows miraculously without any interruption.
  14. Just listening to the soothing and calming raindrops putting you to sleep at the right moment.
  15. Teaching your younger sibling to drive, only at the end you’re the one to get the car out of the ditch and left with mini consecutive heart attacks.
  16. When your dog just cuddle with you on the bed after a long tiring day.
  17. Turning the TV right on time for your favorite show when you forgot about it.
  18. Waking up to find written sticky notes from your younger siblings asking you to open a jar of pickles because they couldn’t and they didn’t want to wake you up at 5:30 am.
  19. Having a drawing competition with your siblings and you’re the only goofing around while they’re all taking it semi-seriously.
  20. That cluster of students that brings down the class average on a test and the professor gives everyone a curve.

These are some life’s simple pleasures  that encompasses mine, my family, and friends’ lives. I can go on and on because I have an extensive list, but I’m not. Maybe another time. Remember life is about appreciating the big things and the small things.
