A blissful perfection
“There is a blissful perfection in even the smallest, most mundane facets of everyday life, and appreciating this is an important source of happiness…Humans adapt to any type of experience, but scholars suggest that we’re less likely to adapt to tiny pleasures because, by their nature, they are unexpected and different each time they occur.” -– Tammy Strobel
So that explains it! I always knew small pleasures were magical, but I didn’t realize that part of their perfection lies in their seeming insignificance. To put it another way, when we’re not expecting anything, we are often pleasantly surprised. I wish you a season of the most blissfully mundane moments of everyday life, along with the recognition of their hidden riches.
