Tiny Happy Things!

Written by on September 18, 2019

Something a little bit different for this weeks blog. This week I thought I would share something that impacted me recently about tiny happy things.

I was scrolling on Facebook, no doubt wasting time when I should have been doing something else and I saw a post by Nanae Hoffman called Tiny Happy Things. It was a graphic with a list of small, everyday things that made the author happy. I shared it straight away on my own newsfeed. Not everything on the list was a Tiny Happy Thing that really resonated with me, but I just loved the sentiment behind it.

It’s Not All About The Big Things

Sometimes we are so busy looking for the big moments, the momentous occasions that bring fireworks and celebrations, I think we forget to celebrate the tiny things that make us happy. There are so many small things in life that can bring us joy, if we just stop for even a minute to enjoy them.

I love to share my view of the world through photography, so I am going to share some of my tiny happy things by sharing some photos of my favourite things. I would love to see some lists from other people. What small things bring you joy? What seemingly mundane thing in your world is one of the things that makes your list of tiny happy things? Scroll down to see part of my tiny happy list in pictures.

Coffee – All the Coffee

I have decided that I am also going to make a list on my phone so that I can keep it with me as a reminder. It is so easy to find the small things that make us grumpy. Somehow the tiny grumpy things are quite easy to focus on. There is too much traffic, I couldn’t find a car-park, that person was rude, my coffee didn’t taste right and so on. I wonder how much difference it would make to our day if we started it by being thankful for a small happy thing.
