Serendipity Experience 61: Share Serenity!

                     "The simplest things are often the truest"  - Richard Bach

With each passing day I find myself increasingly drawn to the simple things in life. I don't know if it is the increasing demands of a fast pace world, or merely the hustle and bustle of everyday life, but more and more I find myself drawn to simple joys. The lighting of a candle, a single flower in a jar, a fallen acorn from a tree, these small pleasures seem to provide me with greater joy than all the expensive and alluring treats in the shop windows. What a lovely serene gift are the simple things in life!!

A candle to light

A found treasure

A sunlit sea!

Today I am "sharing the good life" with others at  sorted with style  abeachcottage pop by for more simple serenity!

  4. I couldn't agree with you more.. Finding Joy in the simple things is such a wonderful way to live.. At least that is what I think...

  6. Wonderful pics Simone, love the one of the sunlit sea. The quote is very true indeed. Thanks for sharing at Beach Cottage Good Life Wednesdays!

  7. I am SO with you! Thank you for the inspiring and beautiful reminders. Painful arthritis and life at home with a 2 year old don't always mix real well. I am learning to take notice and relish in the simple beauties of life.

    Thanks again,

  8. Simone, I agree. I think to myself, what do I really need? I am really taking time to appreciate all the little things and pay it forward.
