I feel like this year has thrown me a lot of curve balls. And in general I've had a hard time enjoying things. But I've made it a goal, both within myself and alongside my friends, to try to enjoy every second. To find joy in as many moments as I can.
And with things like holidays, for example, I've grown up not too fond of Thanksgiving or Christmas. Something about it has always made me anxious. And Christmas music--a lot of the choir kind of songs freak me out. And I still get that weird feeling in my gut when I hear that music or when there's that certain feeling in the air. But this year, I've been trying to enjoy the festivities. Like yes, I will try to look cute and dress up for Halloween. Yes, I will carve a pumpkin this year (for the first time in maybe a decade). Yes, I do plan to bake Christmas cookies asap. I'm trying to enjoy it all.
So for today's post, I wanted to celebrate some of the simple pleasures I've been enjoying lately. And if you're reading this, feel free to comment down below some of your simple pleasures!
