You might call it simple pleasures. Those things that almost seem to give you too much joy considering what they are. I know this isn’t a complete list because certain things are very individual. But some are universal and I’ll bet you’re on board. Let’s see if I can get most of them…

  • First time breaking the surface of the peanut butter. (or icing or nutella or…)
  • First time opening a book¬†and hearing that subtle cracking of the book’s spine.
  • The smell of Sharpies.
  • When you pour a soda or beer and it just hits the top without going over.
  • When a sticker peels off in one piece with no residue left behind.
  • Brand new socks on your feet.
  • Freshly washed sheets on your bed.
  • That first smell of coffee in the morning.
  • The smell of bacon cooking any time of the day.
  • And while we’re on smells, the first time it smells like fall.
  • And while we’re on seasons, the first footprint in new snow.
  • Baby head sniffs.
  • The first squirt of toothpaste on your toothbrush.

File this under “things we love too much”: the first squeeze of the toothpaste.

Now let’s contrast that with things that we might enjoy but that are actually uncomfortable.

  • If you are a beach person, walking on sand with wet feet.
  • Dipping your feet in the pool when it’s too cold.
  • Counting new dollar bills that stick together.
  • Getting drenched¬†in a rain storm.
