I try to remind myself not to let negativity get to me. We all have to go through stuff that we don’t what to, and you cannot compare one person’s bad day to another one. They are what they are and they belong to who they belong. All you can do is to be respectful and kind because everyone is fighting a battle you know nothing about. 

Sometimes it’s important to find joy in the little things and just appreciate the what we have and the people who we love and who loves us. I have this book 14,000 Things To Be Happy About and it’s nice to look through that book because you come a cross some really funny things like Despicable Me (movie) minionssummer dressesthe book that made a different, or sweet honesty.

These are things that you may not always remember (or maybe you do) but when you think about it, they’re actually things that you love and brings out so many memories. They give you a warm feeling in your body and leaves a smile on your face. They are the things and moments that we need to remind ourselves of and appreciate when they happen.

These are a few of the things that I have highlighted in my book.

  • The fireplace as a combination of sentiment, emotion and vague memories
  • A room just for creating art
  • The beach in the fall
  • Rising early
  • Your first time in a foreign country
  • The little things in life that really make your day go right
  • Coming home and being greeted by your dog
  • Seeing someone happy, even if you don’t know them
  • Spending the day looking forward to an evening home alone
  • The power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring
  • Fine snow in the air
  • Closing your eyes while listening to your favourite piece of music
  • Early morning
  • A sense of serenity
  • Friday, otherwise known as “weekend eve”
  • Thinking good thoughts
  • Learning new things
  • Those moments of life that are utterly simple
  • The countryside bathed in autumn sunlight
  • A beautiful state of mind
