I like to find little, simple pleasures and sprinkle them throughout my day. They’re not big things, but if I use them right, they can make my day. So in the morning, I might have a cup of coffee, and sip it slowly to enjoy it fully. I might read a good novel, and revel in the world of fiction. I might watch the sun come up, and love our planet. Or I sit at the edge of a pool and I marvel of the color of the deep blue.
I was constantly running in the world’s hamster wheel, and it forced me to always want more. More adventures. More travels. More friends. More love. I realized at one point that this was just nonsense and silly. And I think about how much I’ve transformed by being on the road, by being myself.
And then, one day in Southern India on a magnificent beach I was so grateful to be there in that exact moment, witnessing something so simple yet so magnificently beautiful. No matter where you are, watching the sunrise forces you to be in the present moment – your mind isn’t bothered by thoughts of the past or the future. The world speaks to your soul through your eyes, and it costs you absolutely nothing. And you know: The best things in life are free.
