Here's a short video I came across today talking about getting satisfaction from the small pleasures in our everyday objects and experiences.
Like taking the time to look at the sky during the weekend.
I know what you're thinking right now; the sky in Amsterdam is mostly grey, and that probably something I'm not going to argue with you about.
Still, however, this act can still be a source of pleasure. Perhaps at the same time saying to yourself; gosh! it's so grey outside! I'm sure am glad I'm inside right now, where it's warm and dry.
Enjoy the video! ... And do yourself a favour, go eat a "vijg" (fig)!
