Hello everyone … well I have been a little slow with my blog posts over the last few weeks.
We had terrible floods here in Brisbane, where I live and while I was not affected, I have been busy helping out.
I subscribe to a daily horoscope and todays one, was reminding me to look for ‘simple pleasures’
We all should take time to look for the simple pleasures in our lives every day … and be grateful xxx

Pleasure In Life
Gemini Daily Horoscope
A desire for pleasure can act as the foundation of your impulses today. Since you are likely actively seeking out gratification, you may be surprised to discover that you do not have to look far to find it. You may feel compelled to indulge your senses with beauty, laughter, and romance, yet you may also find delight in life’s simplest joys. Even as you endeavor to address your obligations as quickly as possible, you can enjoy the pride of a job well done. Likewise, you can discern the visceral pleasures of plain foods today and may be less inclined to seek out heavy, overindulgent meals. The simpler your chosen indulgences, the easier it can be to integrate them into your life healthfully.
Our lives become immeasurably more satisfying when we learn to revel in the pleasures of simply being alive. While many of us are taught from an early age that happiness must always take root in some joyful or exciting happening, there is much we can celebrate in the mundane details of our everyday lives. As we identify these moments worthy of celebration and revel in them, we discover that there are few joys that rival those that can be found all around us. Our willingness to seek out delight in everyday life enables us to identify sources of elation we might otherwise have missed, blinded as we were by the notion that happiness has but a few foundations. You will discover new worlds of enjoyment today when you commit to hunt for hidden pleasures in your daily existence.
