Explore Contentment

“The art of being happy lies in the power of extracting happiness from common things.”
                                                 -  Henry Ward Beecher

Write about contentment that extends beyond a feeling of happiness.  What makes you feel Alive?

Develop a list of "common" things you enjoy.  Include five or ten.  

What does the sun feel like after a steady rain?  

Cherish a taste of boysenberries just picked from the garden.  

Recall a scent that brings a memory. 

Notice a heron, bluejay or sparrow and write about its movement and behavior. 

Sing a few notes of a song with words of delight. 

Revel in a dark night of stars and moonlight.

Deepen the experiences. 

Reveal how nature adds enrichment to your life.  

Respond to the details. 

Explore contentment in a story or poem.
