There are some simple pleasures in life whose cost is miniscule in comparison to the joy that they bring to your day to day existence. For instance, new socks. I like to keep a few pair stashed away for days that I just need a casual shift of attitude or outlook. For my money, there is simply no better way of pampering yourself than a new set of fluffy white socks, wrapping your feet in comfort, and making you feel like a million bucks.
Today I treated myself to another of life’s phenomenal little pick me ups, and I replaced a pair of worn, sorry assed windshield wipers. Who would have thought that $15 could bring such utter satisfaction as I watched those fresh, supple squeegees strip the moisture from my windshield like magic. Gone were the streaks and chunks of sticky water that the old set would leave behind, replaced with clear, dry glass. I almost can’t wait for it to rain again.
What are your simple pleasures?
