When you think about the beauty that is life and the exciting moments that you get to experience, you get that warm feeling inside that lifts you up with the most amazing ecstatic energy. Everyone has a different way of describing it and there are a number of words that we use to try to encompass that overwhelming sense of ecstasy, the essence of life, that we get; one of these includes thrill. The ability to bring it about within us starts with us and recognizing the thrill in the little things.
Since life is lived and felt through our own eyes and focus, it is up to us to put the thrill in things and so many times the little things become ordinary and taken for granted, which is why that thrill becomes harder to get over time. But if each one of us wakes up every day with the thought of appreciation towards life, simply breathing the air that is around you and enjoying the warm sun on your skin, the world becomes a whole bunch of ecstatic moments and feelings.
No matter what you are experiencing, the hardship or challenge that is taking place, if you want to regain a moment of joy that will uplift you it is very possible; but you are the one who makes the choice by stopping yourself from taking for granted those moments of life, which include the small things like simply being alive. It is about perspective and recognizing what life means to you. It’s something you need to want for yourself, which is why no one can do much to bring about the thrill of life to someone who is going through a rough time.
Each one of us has a loved one or more that come to us with their moments of sadness and I’m sure you do all that is in your power to bring that thrill of life to them, to bring to their attention the small things that are amazing about them and their life; unfortunately, only they can maintain that thrill of life as time passes. It really is so simple to focus on one joy, breathing fresh air and meeting wonderful people, being a part of a family or having a wonderful group of friends, or even just having life to live day after day with the things you enjoy doing.
So today, when you get ready to go to sleep and tomorrow when you open up those eyes after a night of sleep; think of the small things that thrill you from this thing called life, even if that small thing is simply the essence of life that is going through your body as you take that first sip of coffee or tea in the morning or a nighttime snack before you head off to dream land.
I’d love to hear about one of the small thrills for you in your life. Can’t wait to hear from you 😊
