The Little Things That Make Us Happy

  • by Michele Scarce

Rediscovering the little things in life that make you happy, add a new little thing each day, and be prepared to sparkle and shine.

Life is full of little wonders that can make us happy. The sound of a baby's laughter, a good book, the comforting smell of a favourite old T-shirt, and the warmth from a cup of hot tea are simple pleasures that can easily put smiles on our faces.

These "little things" are easily accessible to us and can be sources for happiness. A key to finding them is taking the time to put those rose-coloured glasses from childhood back on so you can easily access the joy in all the "little things" life has to offer. 
Finding a puppy rummaging through the laundry basket, trying on that perfect shade of lipstick, or discovering the extra change you left in your back pocket can turn into moments of delight. Like kids digging in the sandpit for buried treasures, we may even begin to experience happiness when we engage in the seemingly mundane things that settle the mind and put us into a quiet state of peace.

You could start by swaying to music playing on the radio that can turn into an interpretive dance, making you smile from ear to ear. Riding a bike can interpret into flying to the moon and getting a phone call from that special someone can make you feel like you just won the lottery.

When we begin rediscovering that the little things in life can make us happy, we naturally want to share this joy with others. We may gush over a friend when we run into them unexpectedly, dance with and praise a street musician for their talents or blow bubbles for the all the kids in the street to chase. We may even start to think of the little things we can do to make other people happy, which in turn makes us happy all over again.

There is an endless supply of little things and little moments that can make us happy. All we must do is look for them, and they'll magically start to appear.

Stay present and in the moment and let the magic happen all around you on a daily basis – momentary basis !
