The other day I came across a tidbit of motivation, which I wanted to share:
Happiness is not just one thing; it’s an accumulation of many little joys. When you connect the dots between all these little joys, life seems fuller and more satisfying.
The above came about after my friend sent me a link to the site called Little Things. Chances are you amy have already seen it, but for those who haven’t, it’s a ‘blog listing things we should appreciate. These are life’s simple pleasures that are commonly overlooked. And possibly daily sources of happiness that are right under your nose.’
Whoever said positive attitudes are contagious hit the nail on the head. I can’t stop flicking through the site and it genuinely encourages me to foster an attitude of gratitude. Reading through them gave me the warm fuzzies, especially since I couldn’t agree more. Some of my favorites include:
- Realising your cramps have gone
- Good story- tellers
- Quick downloads
- Wrapping your cold hands around a warm drink
- When you get a baby to stop crying
- Being the bearer of good news
- When a person enjoys something you recommended
And here’s my simple joy which I experience weekly: Sunday mornings. While I do love Fridays like everyone else, I most look forward to Sunday mornings: not having to rush to the gym, not waking up to an alarm, eating breakfast in bed, lazing around in my pajamas,…everything about it is just ideal! And on that note I hope you all remember to focus on the small frequent pleasures in life, as these will probably add more happiness to our lives than the ‘once in a blue moon’ colossal events!
What little thing is making you smile? Tell me so I can smile about it too!
