Simple pleasures

31 posts in this topic

Question for you all:

What are your simple pleasures in life? Something that brings a smile to your face but would be considered a mundane thing in life or whatever you wish~

Mine is gathering eggs from my chickens. I always love to see the eggs.

And when my horses kiss me without me asking.

Ooh, good question! Let me think...

 

Washing your hands in cold water after working a shift at the charity shop (partly because they're tired, partly because you sift through a lot of icky stuff in the donation bags)

Putting your feet up in bed after a long walk

The first bite of really delicious food (or regular food, if I'm really hungry)

Similarly, the first sip of an ice cold drink

Finishing a book

Winning a game of One Night Ultimate Werewolf (or similar game)

ASMR videos

Colouring by numbers (don't laugh. It's very satisfying)

Seeing a cute baby (bonus points if they smile at you)

That moment in the exam when you've planned the essays out, and you know you'll do fine

 

Okay, that's all I can think of at the moment...

Jegsy I watch ASMR videos too! They're pretty much the only way I can shut my brain up during the semester.

 

Mine are:

 

Dipping your feet in water after a long day.

Eating at a restaurant.

Waking up and realizing you can go back to sleep.

A cool breeze.

Having a bouquet of flowers.

Watching the seasons change.

Having a loved one's arms around you.

Tipping my face back in the rain.  

Taking a walk and watching the clouds.  

Reading a good book.

Having a conversation with a friend about nothing at all or the deepest subject in the world.

Having your dog greet you when you get home.

A new book

Fall when the leaves turn colors

Freedom!! 

Being on the outside of a party with loved ones, like outside the door, always feels better than being in the middle of the party.

Being near pouring rain but not actually in it, like sitting right next to an open window on a rainy day.

Broken down abandoned secret places in school/university that other people rarely go to, they feel like hidden treasures in a Zelda game.

Thinking of an idea that no one's ever thought of before, especially if it can become a project or a romantic gesture.

Being near people you care about and enjoying each other's company and understanding each other without having to say a word (or sometimes even without looking at each other).

Hugs; they are more amazing than people know, and yet can be so few and fleeting these days.

Bakuman. It's made me more romantic, more hard-working and determined, and it's pushed me towards my dreams. I feel so attached to the characters, and I will be genuinely heartbroken and happy when I get to the end :')

So many things!

 

Listening to rainfall - there are really intense storms where I live and I love being in my cosy apartment whilst listening to the storm outside.

Working on my craft projects, especially cross-stitch.

Discovering a documentary online that I have not yet watched, especially if it relates to archaeology.

Changing into my pyjamas at the end of a long day at work :D

An ice cold can of Diet Coke, straight from the fridge!

Driving, even though that might not seem like something simple. I'll get in the car with no destination in mind, just out for a drive.

I like it when I'm done mowing and you can see the lines in the grass like a professional did it.

Making my niece smile, that just warms my heart.

When my dog snuggles next to me on my bed.

-Clocking off work right before the weekend

-An ice cold can of Dr Pepper after a hard day's work

-Being better than everyone else. It's a small thing, but it's still pretty cool :P

-The nostalgic feeling of playing old video games

-Walking around the mall and drowning my mind in the sea of people

-Hearing someone tell you "thank you"

-Making fun of people who camp outside the store for the launch of material things

-Shooting a propane tank from 100 yards away and watching it explode

-holding a baby in my arms :)

 

Lastly, I third Steadfast Madcap and Jegs interest in ASMR videos. Who needs sleeping aids when you have those? lol
