If it Makes you Happy, It Can't be That Bad

Wednesday, March 02, 2016

Hi guys

Sometimes I think we take the nice things that happen to us for granted. We are all too busy grumbling about the littlest things. Like, is it really a big deal if your train is a few minutes late in the morning? Is it worth getting upset if some idiot is paying too much attention to their phone and stops dead in front of you? Yes these things are annoying but they are minor in the grand scheme of things, so why not try taking a deep breath and think about the good stuff!! Here are some of the things that make me smile...

1) Waking up without an alarm, and knowing the day is all mine.

2) People who remember manners cost nothing!

3) Talking to a child that has clearly been brought up really well

4) The view across the Firth of Forth when the sun shines on the Leith coast.

5) When my eyebrows are on fleek! I mean I still don't actually know what fleek means, but I know it's a good thing!

6) A morning kiss on the head from my husband while he creeps around trying not to wake me up.

7) A LARGE glass of White Zinfandel (Californian) after a looooong day at work.

8) Champagne lunches with my girl Fiona!

9) When other people acknowledge our Angel.

10) When I randomly remember funny things friend's have said- sometimes even months later.

11) The smell of a really good candle! I'm looking at you Cotton Candy and Mango Peach Salsa!

12) Tangled

13) Winning a teddy from a claw machine at the fairground

14) Completing a particularly tasking DIY project.

15) When my daddy calls me "toots" or "baby-girl", even though I'm a 28 year old married woman!!

16) Spending a whole day just "being" with Damian.

17) Taking my hair down after a day at work.

Find anything that makes you smile in amongst my happy things? What makes you happy, and where does your mind go when you are met with particularly obnoxious people? You know what to do...comment below or come twitter with me (that's another thing that makes me particularly happy).


  1. This is such a lovely post! I agree we need to just breathe sometimes and remember things that do make us smile. So important to look for the good even when things are bad!

  4. Haha a large glass of wine after work definitely makes me happy! I also love how I'm the opposite - I love putting my hair UP into a large messy bun as soon as I get home!

    1. Ha wine is life Hun! I love that I mean sometimes there is no better feeling than a messy bun and sweatpants (like I'm a "real" writer now) but I HAVE to wear mine up at work so not fair really lol. Xx
