i am never happier than right now

i am never happier than when i...
spend an extra ten minutes in bed with my family in the morning, cuddling and reading
hear a beautiful song
get lost in a project, the hours passing, and i see a creation come to life
dive into a stack of new yorkers rather than check instagram one last time
paint a picture with elodie
call my mom
sit in a dark theater with my little sister holding her hand
share a meal and a laugh with an old friend

lying in my yoga class yesterday i thought of all these things and felt close to perfect. these moments, although right there in front of me, become obscured by the barrage of every day life. just thinking about them brought a smile to my face. i don't have to wait for a new happy moment to happen. i am never happier than right now.

  1. Aww, thanks for sharing. I, too, feel pretty close to perfect, in yoga-class, reflecting on where I am in my life. My instructor always reminds us to "Be thankful for this moment. You have everything you need." I love that. xo.

  4. I love this so. And I agree with Joslyn about the extra 10 minutes of cuddling and the stack of new yorkers. Indeed!
