Basking In A Little Bliss

Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.” ~Winston Churchill

It’s never taken much for me to feel bliss. I mean before I gave up candy a bag of jolly ranchers well, except for the watermelon flavor, would send me over the moon. So when something momentous occurs like the weather beginning a premature transition into spring I feel downright giddy.

Because I’ve set the bar relatively low, sparkly things like sequins and crystals or textures, patterns, and adornments on clothing and shoes will send me into the stratosphere. For example, the tailored short dark blue denim trench coat pictured in the collage has some interesting features which I’ve circled. While I would have noticed pre-sight loss the different elements on this particular garment I appreciate the tactile aspects so much more now since I cannot see well. Contrary to popular belief you don’t need sight to find enjoyment in life. Joy can sometimes be found in the littlest of things.

  1. Amen to that. Thank you! My attitude isn’t always sunshine and butterflies 😄 but it’s evolved and improved over the years. Being grateful for breathing is a good starting point.

  2. I remember one time I won $20 at a convention and you’d have thought I won a Showcase on The Price Is Right. 🤣It was thrilling.

  3. There are lots of sighted people who don’t enjoy life because they don’t take time to experience the little things in life. You have an excellent attitude. I do love reading your blog.
