15 Nice Things that we Take for Granted


“I have a natural swagger.” – Kevin Bacon

  1. The smell and feel of hopping into a bed made with freshly cleaned sheets
  2. Finding a parking spot close to the door
  3. Remembering to bring an umbrella with you on a rainy day
  4. Catching a bus or train at the very last second
  5. Finally getting to pee when you really have to go
  6. Pay day
  7. Drinking a big glass of cold water when you’re thirsty
  8. Peeling off your socks after a long day
  9. The smell and taste of freshly baked bread
  10. Bacon – the smell of it, the taste of it, and Kevin
  11. The first chord of The Beatle’s “A Hard Day’s Night”
  12. The first cut into a sheet of construction paper
  13. Ripping open packages and presents
  14. Bubbles in any form – bubble baths, blowing bubbles, bubbles in your milk,
    and popping bubble wrap are some favourites
  15. Jumping into a pool or lake on a hot and sunny day

    A smile from a stranger.
    Someone holding the door open for you.
    My cats greeting me at the door when I come home.
    Paying for a coffee for the person behind you in the drive thru.
