savouring simple pleasures *updated

mr. roboto on a dog bed cover from molly muttI realise that last post sounded a little grumpy and impatient.

I want to remedy that. I want you to know that, even though in the last few days of the month I was eager for the symbol of a fresh start, I was able to practice instant gratification in January.

By that I mean, being in the present, seizing a moment – however fleeting – for joy, claiming a little pleasure or delight or appreciation.

The link above is to a piece from Danielle Laporte that showed up right on time. Danielle is one of my big-hearted, inspiring, badass women guides. She confirmed how important it is to notice the good, especially when you’re we’re in the trenches.

So, I present a collection of delightful moments I noted and am still savouring from January.

(I had some questions about the photos, all iPhone shots. Descriptions below.)
