“Rule #32 – Enjoy the Little Things” ~ Zombieland

May 16, 2012

This morning while driving I was reminded that it’s the little things in life that we need to appreciate.  My son had to point out that this is also Rule #32 in Zombieland, so it must be important!

Our daily lives seem to become more high stress and demand more and more each day.  As an entrepreneur in a state that is considered the 8th largest economy in the world, I feel the pressure of success daily.  It is during these times that I need to remind myself to stop and appreciate the little things.

Below is a list of some little things that may make me smile.

  • Sunrises and Sunsets
  •  Puppy Breath
  • The smell of popcorn when you enter the movie theatre
  • The small cry of a newborn
  • Someone saying thank you after you go out of your way to be nice
  • Vacation with great friends
  • A warm breeze on a summer afternoon
  • The unexpected hoot of an owl while sitting on the porch swing
  • A loving, respectful spouse
  • Teenagers (I know weird, but imagine someone who has lost their child, I’m sure they’d love to be dealing with a teenager rather than their grief)
  • Spring flowers
  • Summer fruit

I could go on and on.  There are so many little things to be thankful for that we should stop and appreciate.  I hope that this post has helped you stop and take a minute to think of some of the things that make you smile.    I’d love to hear some of your favorite little things in life!

Thanks for reading!

    So nice to get this reminder. I’m head down trying to keep up with the snow of email, and this just reminded me to look up and out the window. My little guy keeps saying, “Is it Summer day?” Yes, today it is. That means a bike ride with the family. The snow can keep falling. I can clean that up later.

    Nathan – thanks for making me smile this morning and the awesome metaphor! I say let it snow – life’s too short – go enjoy the bike ride!
