"Luxury is not a pleasure, but pleasure is a luxury."
(Le luxe n'est pas un plaisir mais le plaisir est un luxe)
The above statement (in French) was on a billboard in France which someone had photographed for their blog. And I've been thinking about it ever since.
Finding pleasure and joy in the everyday is an attitude to cultivate. Is joy a luxury to you? Or something to take for granted, as a right? The more I think about it, the more I realize that discovering pleasure in life is a luxury that requires nothing more than an open heart.
I find pleasure in the color of dry grasses against a blue sea, of white specks that are gulls by the dozens on the narrow spit of land, of a blue sky on a cold day.
In what are you finding joy today?
