“Rule #32 – Enjoy the Little Things” ~ Zombieland

Shamelessly reposted from a blog post by Pam Capistrano, our CEO, and my lovely wife!  Zombies – yes!

This morning while driving I was reminded that it’s the little things in life that we need to appreciate.  My son had to point out that this is also Rule #32 in Zombieland, so it must be important!

Our daily lives seem to become more high stress and demand more and more each day.  As an entrepreneur in a state that is considered the 8th largest economy in the world, I feel the pressure of success daily.  It is during these times that I need to remind myself to stop and appreciate the little things.

Below is a list of some little things that may make me smile.

  • Sunrises and Sunsets
  •  Puppy Breath
  • The smell of popcorn when you enter the movie theatre
  • The small cry of a newborn
  • Someone saying thank you after you go out of your way to be nice
  • Vacation with great friends
  • A warm breeze on a summer afternoon
  • The unexpected hoot of an owl while sitting on the porch swing
  • A loving, respectful spouse
  • Teenagers (I know weird, but imagine someone who has lost their child, I’m sure they’d love to be dealing with a teenager rather than their grief)
  • Spring flowers
  • Summer fruit

I could go on and on.  There are so many little things to be thankful for that we should stop and appreciate.  I hope that this post has helped you stop and take a minute to think of some of the things that make you smile.    I’d love to hear some of your favorite little things in life!
