Little Things

Little things make all the difference.

It’s so easy to look at life negatively; it’s easy to let things get you down. It’s easy to get angry, sad, stressed… It’s easy to think that life isn’t fair. Missing a bus, burning your toast, stubbing your toe… these are all small circumstances that can ruin your day… but only if you let them.

When I’m having a bad day, I try to find little things to be grateful for. I find little things to make me smile again. Here are some of those things…

  • Opening the curtains to let the sunshine in
  • Listening to my favourite songs on repeat
  • Spending a bit of extra time getting ready
  • Spending a bit of extra time on breakfast
  • Sleeping in clean sheets
  • Helping someone else
  • Driving with the windows down and radio up
  • Listening to the birds sing
  • Popping bubble wrap
  • Getting into a bubbly bath
  • A facepack after a long day
  • Making somebody laugh
  • A tidy bedroom
  • Making plans with friends
  • Calling up an old friend
  • Sitting and watching the world go by
  • Blowing dandelions
  • Ordering something online
  • The thing you ordered online arriving
  • Watching candles burn
  • Morning cuddles before getting up
  • Eating lunch at the park
  • Smiling children
  • Taking my bra off at the end of the day
  • Walking outside with bare feet
  • Telling someone you love them


Some days are shit but it is possible to them a little bit less shit.
