Do you want to enjoy your life and be happy? in this post I am going to show you a simple way to enjoy this beautiful life every day.

To enjoy life you need a deep sense of enjoying the beautiful things in life.
It is all about that special aesthetic capacity and depth of feeling for the sublime and striking, outstanding beautiful expression of beautiful things.
A thing of beauty is a joy forever, its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness; but still will keep a bower quiet for us, and a sleep full of sweet dreams, and health and quiet breathing.

Beauty can be found in diverse aspects of the natural world and humans. Its ally is learning, its essence is a taste for symmetry and proportion so you can see it in a piece of oratory or passionate Sermon a piece of music, and elevated examples of poetry.
In architectural monuments and a secluded pond deep in a forest and human bodily beauty.
What To Enjoy?
Some people enjoy the material goods that life has to offer: gourmands enjoy tasty food and drink, fine clothes, cars and peaceful sleep at night.
Some nature lovers like to enjoy cruises at the sea or angling or a good swim in warm river waters, some enjoy sport, still others enjoy a good book, others enjoy travel to distant remarkable places.
What I Personally Enjoy
Personally I enjoy reading a good book and sharing laughs with a nice fellow.
I enjoy drinking hot coffee with chocolate.
But, especially, I enjoy looking at beautiful people without bothering them.
The feeling you get when enjoying beautiful things is that you somehow participated in this and get your times worth of a well-lived life.
