Life's Simple Joys

Life is really simple, 
but we insist on making it complicated. 
-Confucius 

Forget about the latest gadgets, designer brands, or expensive vacations. You don't have to look far or try so hard to experience joy in life. 

You just have to be creative, be appreciative, and always have a grateful heart.

Indeed it is in the simplest that we often find pure joy.


30 Simple Joys of Life


1.  Feeling the fresh cool breeze in the morning.

2.  Staring at the moon, and basking in the moon light.

3.  The sound of a baby's laughter.
 


4.  A sweet message from a friend or a simple "How are you?" when you're overwhelmed with life.

5.  That moment you realize you're in love with someone who loves you back. 

6.  The sound of the raindrops on your roof.

7.  Opening a present.
