It’s the little things

Right now, especially, we are all struggling to find a little bit of joy in our days. It seems as if we are stuck in a never-ending Groundhog Day. We have all reached our breaking point at least once during this pandemic and it’s hard.
I know, for me, it helps when I am having a bad day (which is quite often to be honest), to focus on the little things that make me happy. They seem to make the days more bearable and are a good reminder to be grateful for what I do have.
Happiness for me is…
A sugary cup of tea
Chocolate, of any kind
Painted toenails
A ripe, juicy nectarine
Sex (#notsorry)
Laughter, especially my husbands when he giggles like a little boy
All the people I love (it’s a long list ❤️)
The ocean
Dogs (especially G)
A new planner or water bottle (I have an addiction)
Being organized ( I feel so out of sorts if things are a mess)
Freshly laundered sheets
The smell of coffee (but NOT the taste)
Collecting shells
Being outside in nature
Singing at the top of my lungs when no one is around
Books, real ones
My Mom’s shortbread
Flip flops
Big earrings
My favorite music (which ranges from classical, to pop, to hip hop to everything in between LOL)
A ripe banana (don’t even try to give me a green one!)
Just shaven, silky smooth legs
A mason jar full of flowers
The way my husbands foot has to touch mine at night in bed
Taking photographs (of anything and everything, yes, selfies included)
Funny autocorrects when I text
Cuddling, snuggling, hugging
I could probably go on for ages if I really took time to think about it and I think you’ll find if you start making a list of the things that make you smile, it will be a VERY long list. So…what makes you happy?! And when you’re feeling low, remember that there are so many little things to be grateful for xx
