Happy Little Things

“The little things in life create the biggest smiles. Be Happy! Not because everything is good, but because you can see the good side of everything. You can be as happy as you allow yourself to be”

I do believe it’s the little things in life that make us happy. Small gestures and simple pleasures throughout the week. My list of happy little things that fill me with bliss are endless. ;-) Just to name a few that first came up:

The moment after the rain stops..Everything smells so fresh and clean.

A long phone conversation … with one of your best friends.

A small change to your routine… to make your day feel more exciting.

Your music… when you want it. Turn on the radio in your car or on your phone. Sing out loud and enjoy! ;-)

Children playing… reminding you to be joyful.  Or swing, blow bubbles or dancing yourself.

Try a new (or favorite) recipe… to forget your thoughts for a while and be completely focused. Preparing and eating fresh food gives me joy every time!

Laugh out loud… by seeing something funny on TV, YouTube or by thinking of a happy memory.

A spa-like shower experience… use your favorite shower gel and/or scrub your skin and above all take your time and enjoy!

A small gesture of support…A tight squeeze of your hand before you get up for your presentation or a simple smile just when you need it.

An outdoor walk… the feeling of sunlight on your face and how relaxed and energized you feel afterwards.

Reading inspiring quotes…like ‘For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness’ and ‘My life isn’t perfect, but it does have perfect moments’ I’ve collected some more at the end of this post. :-)

‘Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you may look back and realize they were big things’

Let’s take time to love and enjoy our happy little things! A Happy Weekend!
