LITTLE THINGS


The little things matter in our lives, that's for sure. When you're feeling down a text from a loved one, a compliment from a stranger or unexpected perfect weather could be one of the things to save that day. I see myself as an optimist and I've noticed I very easily get cheered up by the smallest and most insignificant-seeming things. That's a feature I love about myself. To be able to look on the bright side of life. And quite frankly I don't much like people who always point out the negative sides of things and make the world seem like such a horrible place (when it's not!). That just doesn't match my way of thinking.

I do admit, though, that lately even I have been having some trouble to stay optimistic. But then again first an excruciating sore throat and now sinusitis don't give much reason to be cheerful. However, today was an exception, since I got to see my boyfriend after being parted from him since last Sunday due to him being gone to do his military service. Reuniting was pretty awesome. Anyhowzz, after reading this lovely post, which (surprise surprise) cheered me up, I decided to make my own version of it in hopes to cheer you guys up! So here you go, my favorite little things that bring a thread of light even to the darkest days of my life!
