No, just because there's a global quarantine doesn't mean I have a special announcement to make about a tiny human arriving in nine months. I'm thinking this morning about the little minutiae of our days that bring us happiness. Everyone has something different. For me, for as long as I can remember, smells have brought me the simplest but most consistent pleasure of almost anything I can remember. I have eleven candles sitting on my bookshelf next to me as we speak, and rarely a day goes by without at least one of them getting burned. The scent I choose depends on my mood, but they never fail to bring nostalgia, and more importantly, joy.
It could be a snack food, a song, a flower, anything. If you can think of something that just always lifts your spirits, I'd love to hear it. They say a happy life is made up of the little things, and they just may be right.
"A Single Seed" is my attempt to get out one idea every day that I've learned or accumulated over the years, with the hope that it may stick in someone else's memory bank as well. The idea may be related to fitness, business, life, or philosophy, but I think you'll find that many can change domains if you wish them to. With each seed planted, a new life awaits.
