pleasure in simple things

Repeat three times:I find joy and pleasure in simple things.  The most beautiful and enjoyable things can be the simplest. While many others pursue enjoyment and pleasure in luxuries, I am able to find enjoyment in everyday things.

This is where affirmations are a great help.   This weeks affirmation is as follows:
I am constantly simplifying my life.

Something as simple as a tree, flower, laughing child, or song can be immensely enjoyable on many levels. Fortunately, these beautiful things are all around me. I only need to open my eyes and pay attention.

Even in troubling times, there are simple experiences to be enjoyed.   I live a gentle, easy life. This allows me to see and enjoy life’s simple pleasures. It is more than just a choice. It is a lifestyle.

I am constantly simplifying my life.   Many people spend precious time and energy chasing after extravagances. I know better. My choice is to take advantage of the simple enjoyments to be found in life.

I reject those things that are unnecessarily complex. My ability to perceive is the only limit to my joy and pleasure. Yet, it’s a generous limit as I am a highly perceptive person.

Today, I seek new and simple ways to add joy to my life. I am looking for the simple and pleasurable experiences that life has to offer. I find joy and pleasure in simple things.

Self-Reflection Questions:

  1. What are the simple things in my life that bring me the most enjoyment?
  2. What other easy hobbies or experiences could I enjoy if I chose to?
  3. Is my life more complex than it needs to be? How can I simplify it?

About Weekly Affirmations

Each week I find it helpful to use affirmations.   I personally find using the same affirmation for 7 days more effective, so I will share them each Thursday with you.
You may ask why Thursday, well it usually is the day of the week that I struggle the most.   I found Sunday’s as a start not working for me, I tried then Monday and discovered that I would be stressed from work.
The discovery that the affirmation sits in my mind over the weekend that by Monday was a game changer.  It became part of me effortlessly.  You can use them as you see best fit.  There is no right or wrong with affirmations as long as you use them.   Using the affirmations in your daily life helps you build the life that you desire.


Words have power — use them to your advantage to make today a great day for you!   If you are always saying you can’t do something you are setting yourself up for failure.  Use these affirmations to assist you on your spiritual journey to grow and prosper.
