La beauté de plaisir




La beauté de plaisir....

The beauty of pleasure....

The perfection of perfectly steamed asparagus, lightly salted, spring green color as vibrant as the flavor bursting in your mouth as you take your first bite, savoring each delicious moment...

The beauty of a square of chocolate brought to life after a sip of red wine...who knew the pairing of these two could result in such a triumph for the taste buds?

The intoxicating scent of a gentle rain outside your door, compelling you to stop, quiet yourself, and listen.

This is the beauty of pleasure.

They are simple things in life, simple but beautiful.

How many of us stop to take in the beauty around us?  How many of us absolutely enjoy the day that we've been blessed to experience?  How many of us appreciate every moment we have, truly appreciate it?

Regardless of your beliefs, we have one conscious life to live.   Each day is precious, meant to be enjoyed to the fullest.  We need to slow down and truly experience the joy that each day can bring.  Taste the flavors, see the colors, feel the textures of life.  

Live....

Live your life....

Experience your life....

Don't simply exist.....

Find the beauty of pleasure.....
