Some small things to appreciate – and why that’s important

small things to appreciate Today’s post is a little different to my normal content- small things to appreciate. I wanted to take the chance to remind you of all the small things that bring joy into our everyday life. x

Especially when life gets busy or your summer high slowly fades it’s important to appreciate the little things in life. These are the things we sometimes take for granted and forget about. So be thankful for the little things, because they make life valuable.

  • waking up 10 minutes before your alarm
  • sunshine, especially when you live, like me, in a country where it’s cloudy most days
  • waking up to a text message from a friend
  • fresh & ironed bedding
  • finishing work before deadlines
  • good hair days
  • a fresh manicure
  • your loved ones
  • all kinds of baked goods
  • your favorite song

    I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I come
    across a blog that’s both educative and interesting, and
    let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is an issue that not enough people are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy I came across this during my hunt for something relating to this.

    Heya! I realize this is somewhat off-topic however I
    needed to ask. Does managing a well-established blog such as yours
    require a large amount of work? I’m brand new to running a blog however
    I do write in my diary everyday. I’d like to
    start a blog so I can easily share my experience
    and views online. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for new
    aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!
