30 LITTLE THINGS THAT BRING ME JOY WHEN LIFE ISN'T VERY EXCITING.

Sunday, 15 April 2018

Last night as I lay in bed, my stomach suddenly growled so with the little will power that I have, I went and opened a pack of Maryland double chocolate cookies. I then turned to my sister and said 'these cookies bring me so much joy'. So this is a post dedicated to that, the simple pleasures and moments in life. In order to spread this joy, I'd like to make this post a 'tag' that you can also do yourself, even if you don't have a blog, write it down on a piece of paper and whenever you need a little pick me up, the list might just help. Make sure to let me know if you write your own post as I'd love to see what things bring a smile to your face!

Even writing this blog post brought me a bit of joy as we so often dwell on the things we detest/annoy us and don't focus on the things we enjoy. What are your simple pleasures in life?
