It is the sweet, simple things of life

which are the real ones after all.

~ Laura Ingalls Wilder



Sweet, simple things of life … when we fill our days with the joy of simple things we are filling our soul with goodness and nourishing our Primary Nutritional needs. When we put our attention to filling our Primary Nutritional needs we can appreciate the sweet, simple things of life more and have less need to fill our bodies with unnecessary food and sugar. Life is sweet and there are many things all around us that we can take in each day to satisfy our soul’s hunger.

Sometimes I find it hard to smile and be happy or satisfied with the sweet, simple things of life and those are precisely the times when I need to shift my focus the most. I cannot always do it easily, that’s when I call a friend, pick up an inspiration book or sit down and meditate. There are indeed those dark times in one’s life where it’s really, really hard to look at the sweet, simple things of life and smile ~ call on your tribal counsel, your spiritual board of directors, your BFF’s and remember the good things because you are sweet enough!
