The Little Things That Make Me Happy

HAZE The Little Things That Make Me Happy

I think it’s fair to say I have been dealt more than a fair share of rubbish throughout my life, which I try not to dwell on, so it’s always the little things in life which I try to reflect on that are so important and keep me going. I know I am wildly obsessed with clothes and fashion in general, and wearing something I have wanted for a long time honestly does make me happy, but the best things in life, which are usually free, are what make the days special to me. So, I thought it might be interesting to list a few things that make me smile and happy inside when times are tough. What are some of the things that inspire you to keep going?

  • The love that I get from my pets, it’s priceless and they are part of the family.
  • On a Sunday when my mum cooks a roast dinner, the smell and warmth radiates through the house.
  • Simply holding hands with my wonderful boyfriend.
  • Appreciating nature in the summer time while listening to the animal sounds.
  • A smile or a nice gesture from a stranger. It restores my faith in humanity.
  • Seeing years of hard work finally paying off.
  • Getting really involved in a great book.
  • That warming feeling in my stomach when I help someone out.
  • Snuggling up and watching a romance movie.
  • The way my boyfriend carries our camera and takes my photos without question.
  • Listening to beautiful songs and expressing myself through singing.
  • The butterflies in my tummy when my boyfriend and I first got together.
  • Being near fresh water, like a stream or a lake.
  • Tidying up and organising my bedroom after it’s gotten really messy.
  • Seeing couples out and about exchanging gestures of love.
  • Getting a back massage from my boyfriend when my back always hurts.
  • Daydreaming about the crazy and interesting ideas I always have.
  • And last, but not least, reading the lovely comments from all of you.

    Thats lovely things to say Lorna, and pets you cannot beat. The love from a pet is priceless, the warmth from them being on your lap is wonderful. I too love the smell of a lovely roast dinner, I am glad all these things make you happy x

    Ooooh no! Lorna I just wrote a huge response and it expired :( I will try to remember everything…

    This is such a lovely sweet post! :) I can really relate to some of the things that make you smile, especially random smiles from strangers & back massages from my boyfriend – I always have a sore back too!

    A few other things that make me smile are:

    Cute kids, they say the funniest things.
    Seeing an elderly couple holding hands (awww).
    Exploring a new country.
    Laughing until I cry.
    The feeling of sand beneath my toes.
    Private jokes with friends.
    Meeting new people and making new friends!
    Acting like a dork with my boyfriend.
    I also love reading blog comments too :)

    xoxo
