In life, it’s easy to focus on the big and grand things but more often its the simple pleasures that give us daily comfort and satisfaction.
For me, having a nice garden and providing a place for wildlife like birds to come enjoy is one of my simple pleasures. This year I got a bird feeder, bird bath, and planted a berry patch in the corner along with moving my herbs to bigger pots.
It’s simple but relaxing. There’s not much more to say about it. I just think everyone could use a simple thing to relax with. Make it something where there’s no big plans or goals, but just leave it easy and let it grow. It could be a garden or it could be some other little hobby. Maybe it could be a few.
I often feel it’s hard to enjoy my other hobbies as much because I try to hard to be successful. With a garden and a bird feeder, you just want things to live and thrive. That’s it. If only the rest of life could be so easy.
