Lately, I’ve been blogging about going on shows, trying new food, trying new things and just about anything that sounds like everything I do cost something. Rest assure, I don’t have such an expensive taste… Only lately. Hehe!
I do take pleasure in the simple and unexpensive things life offer to me and I would like to dedicate the last post of the year to reflect on that:
Having great conversation: I love being able to connect people through conversation and being able to enjoy the company of another being. I realized my day is even more enjoyable when I had lots of great conversations. There is something wonderful of putting my mind in the present when I talk to someone… It keeps me from daydreaming.
Getting that cup of hot chocolat or tea with my uncle: He treats me something to drink everytime he drives me to my aunt place and back home. It becomes a habit that I expect everytime I go work at my aunt place and I love it.
Cooking dinner: I really don’t do that often but everytime I start cooking, I get some kind of pleasure out of it… I feel the adrenaline pumping through my veins when my food is almost ready.
Listening to music: I can spend a whole day listening to music and I’m not kidding! My aunt told me once that I used to bump my head up and down to the music when I was a little baby… and some people even film me. lol!
Scenery outside: Sometimes, I will take a different route to go to school just to enjoy the scenery around me. It’s so calming and it helps me get rid of the stress from University.
Being/Doing things alone: I can say I’m comfortable with myself to a certain extend but I’m not there yet. I do get that sense of enjoyment of figuring out by myself if I actually enjoy the things I do in my free time such as shopping, reading a book, doing exercise or anything that can keep me busy. All the things I do alone helps me figure out who I am as a person.
Taking pictures: Something about capturing the moment or the beauty that one cannot see with their own eyes… The fact that I have control over the camera and lead it to a certain angle to bring out the beauty of things I see. Once I got a hold of a camera, the world around me become an art.
