50 Little Things That Will Put A Smile On Your Face

18 November 2015

With all the sadness, cruelty and heartbreak in the world lately it has been hard to be positive. I don't know if this is the same with you reading this but I personally have had such a heavy heart this week and I've been so incredibly emotional. However, I don't want this to be a negative post. I've decided that I would put together a little list of things to be happy about and things that will put a smile on your face. Yes these things may not be significant or hugely important but these are definitely things that can help put that smile back on your face if you are having a dull day. It's like Albus Dumbledore once said 'Happiness can be found even in the darkness of times, if one remembers to turn on the light'. Enjoy!

  1. This post is exactly the type of post we need to read right now. Thank you so much! I study in Paris so I was deeply touched by the events,and I feel like my life is on pause at the moment and I can't see the end of it. I try to read a few blog posts in the evening to cheer up, and this one is actually perfect. I'd say my favourite thing at the moment is going to Costa and hearing Christmas music! And cosy nights in with a hot drink are a must too :)

    1. This comment made me well up a little bit! I hope you and your family are okay Julia and that you are all staying safe! I'm glad this post and others like this have helped you. It will get easier eventually, but I can understand it will take time as the events are definitely so raw right now. I have to agree with the christmas music! I heard last Christmas the other day and was so super happy!! :) xx

    2. We are okay fortunately, I feel really lucky that me and my loved ones were safe when it all happened. Thank you again for the support and positivity, sometimes it's the little things that work the best! x

  2. I know exactly what you mean about feeling emotional! Every time the news comes on, it's just sadder every time! This is such a good idea though :) I really need to get onto number 3 asap haha - you're right though, it does make you feel much better! ;)
