The Little Things

As the holiday season approaches, things often get crazy and hectic. Many people lose sight of what the importance of the season is and everything they have to be thankful for. I took some time on my bus ride into work earlier this week, just to list some things like make me happy on a day-to-day basis. They’re little things, but thinking of them allows me to take a second and put everything into perspective.


Here are the little things that I’m loving in life right now:

  • Getting my first cup of tea when I get to work in the morning
  • Coming home and seeing my parents after a long day
  • Completing a 4 mile run when I didn’t think I could
  • Having a glass of wine with coworkers after a long work day
  • Finally starting and being more than halfway through with How I Met Your Mother
  • Getting a new idea for a blog post (and having friends text me saying how they love reading my blog!)
  • Technology, because I can talk with my best friends and family almost everyday, even when I can’t see them for weeks.
  • The holiday season– because who doesn’t love Christmas?!

I know this list may seem a little silly but going through it really put a smile on my face. I’m sure I missed a few things, but hey, that means there’s a lot to be happy about ๐Ÿ™‚

What small things put a smile on your face?
