Small Song (Lhasa De Sela)


Among those things I am constantly trying to learn is to be satisfied with the small things.

It’s not that I don’t enjoy the little things in life, I sure do, but what I’m missing is to reach happiness with those little things, only.

But I must be on the right track, because I can become ecstatic with the smell of fresh coffee.
I can dote on a piece of quality praline.
I can be genuinely proud of myself when I doodle a moderately good doodle. I can even instagram it, instantly.
I can listen to that sweet new song I discovered on the radio at least hundred times, without getting bored a bit.
I LOVE making jokes. I LOVE laughter. I will always laugh more when I see a friend laughing at my jokes.

An these are only the few of those little things that I come across everyday, and they make me the happiest person on earth.
For a bit.
And then I’m back on the cold ground from those pink clouds.

I mean, you’d think, being so capable of feeling joy, I would also be capable of sustaining it longer than 10 minutes, but no.

But, like I said, I must be on the right track.
It also helps that the “big” stuff in my life are also in line for the time being.

Now, onto that fresh coffee…


PS: Here’s another small thing to celebrate and be happy about: This is my 20th post!
A round of virtual beers (or ginger ales) on me! Cheers!

  1. Moments of happiness, that’s it. Congratulations. And long stretches of being content. And moments of sadness. That’s life. I don’t think anybody is happy all the time.
