“I have found that some of the simplest things have given me the most pleasure. They didn’t cost me a lot of money either. They just worked on my senses. Did you ever pick very large blueberries after a summer rain Walk through a grove of cottonwoods, open like a park, and see the blue sky beyond the shimmering gold of the leaves? Pull on dry woolen socks after you’ve peeled off the wet ones? Come in out of the subzero and shiver yourself warm in front of a wood fire? The world is full of such things.”—Dick Proenneke (via theriverjordyn)
People fail to you realize your attitude makes the most difference in any given situation. it’s all how you react and perceive the situation. This is something i’ve been struggling with recently, but when you take yourself out of the situation you are able to clearly react and that’s a beautiful thing. Humans have the ability to change and feel what we want to feel. We are cognitively beautiful.
