Forgotten Money

A simple pleasure: finding money

Desperate times call for desperate measures. All your laundry is dirty. You dig into the laundry basket. You pick the pair of jeans that look and smell the cleanest.

You venture into the deep unknown inside of your closet. You select the pair of jeans that you have not seen in years.

Dirty or outdated, you now have something to wear. It may not be the greatest day. Just wait.

You place your hand into your back pocket. You pull out $10. Being a little bit richer puts a big smile on your face.

Your money is lost and waiting to be found. CNN offers ways to find your hidden money. However, if you have never had payroll checks, stocks or utility refunds, you should stick with searching in the couch cushions for some simple pleasures.

Let finding a few extra bucks be your perfectly blissful day.

Rainy Days

A simple pleasure: a rainy day

The morning rain lightly hits your bedroom window. Your bed, your pillow, your covers become your haven. There is nothing better than sleeping in on a rainy day.

The clouds are clustered, protecting the sun. The rain pours down. You are curled up with your grandma’s homemade quilt and watching your favorite movies.

Thunder rattles in the distant sky. The rain is your lullaby. Tonight will be a good night’s sleep.

Not everyone is fortunate enough to have the chance to stay inside all day when it rains. Even if you have to journey into the weather, make it an adventure. It is your story. Live it up.Dance in the rain. Sing in the rain. Run in the rain. Make-out in the rain. Wash your worries away in the rain.

Rainy days don’t mean bad days. The weather and your emotions are not linked. Journalist for MSN Health and Fitness, Rich Mallof, wrote, “Our emotions are not causalities of weather.”  You can control how you feel by what you choose to do.

Let a rainy day be your perfectly blissful day.
