For it being such a cold day, I have received a record amount of warm fuzzies today!
I just got back from a walk outside (in the FREEZING cold!) and I was listening to a song that ALWAYS makes me feel like vacation, and I was thinking I should PUBLICALLY declare my feelings of gratitude toward the little things. We often tell people that we love them, and that we appreciate them…and BIG things like being grateful for getting into grad school or going away to Aruba…but what about the little things?? Do we ever stop to thank the universe (or whatever else you want to refer to) for all those LITTLE things?? Well I’m about to right now!
~ The song “All Night Long” by Lionel Richie
~A fresh sheet of paper. There is just something so amazing about the feeling of a full page of potential!
~Reading trashy magazines at (specifically) Barnes and Noble, while sipping on a Vanilla Soy Chai
~15 extra minutes in the morning when I can sit down with a cup of coffee and chat with my mom
~A random conversation with a stranger
~Hot showers. I tend to stay in there as long as possible, just because it feels good.
~”Tribute” by Tenacious D…during the “scatting” piece of the song. “Fliggagigu”. Nick busted it out on our first date…always makes me smile 🙂 Along with the song “Use Somebody” by Kings of Leon, another one he sings to me a lot 🙂
And I’m sure there are SOOO many more, but I realized the list was getting LONG. You know what though? You know what the best part of this post is? While you’re reading this, you’re probably either thinking about what makes YOU happy, or agreeing with some of mine because those are things that make you happy too…and most likely that means that you are happier now than you were 5 minutes ago.
