The Small Things In Life

Some of the small things in life that make me smile, even on days (or weeks) where all I want to do is cry:

  • Letting down your hair at the end of a long day – and smelling your shampoo again.
  • The clean, fresh smell of the air after the rain.
  • A hot cup of earl grey tea to warm up your afternoon.
  • That butterflies-in-your-tummy feeling.
  • The unconditional love of a puppy – and its pure joy at seeing you.
  • A hug from a friend.
  • Warm, fuzzy socks.
  • When someone spells/pronounces my name correctly!
  • Drawing on steamed-up glass shower walls.
  • Waking up and realizing you can still lie in bed for 10 minutes before your alarm goes off.
  • Accidentally saying something really smart/funny.
  • Hugs from behind.
  • Songs that remind you of a special person or moment.
  • Wearing a new fragrance.
  • The feel of your skin after you've rubbed in body butter.
  • Seeing a butterfly.
  • Finding the last item in your size.
  • Spending half an hour just daydreaming and imagining.
  • Listening to an upbeat song on the walk to work.
  • New underwear.
  • Sitting outside on a cold but clear evening, with a blanket and some red wine, just watching the stars.
  • Writing. Even if its complete nonsense.
  • Putting on warm clothes straight from the drier.
  • Cheese. With preserved figs. Heaven.
  • Humming Disney songs in the lab.
  • Getting out of uncomfortable skinny jeans and into pajama pants.
  • My plant on my desk.
  • Colourful nails.
  • Receiving packages in the mail.
  • Candlelight
Do you make an effort to appreciate the small things in life? What makes you smile?
