So you know I had to have this top as soon as I saw it right? Of course you did… It’s pastel lavender, it’s lace and it has bows! It simply had to be mine. But it wasn’t a matter of just buying something new or wanting something fashionable. It was the way I knew this top would make me feel when I was wearing it. We all have those little things. The things that put a skip in our step and a smile on our face. And more often than not they aren’t the big things that do it.
Yes of course getting a new job, buying a new car, moving into a new house or going on a big holiday can be huge joyful moments. But how often do they happen? And how long does that happiness last? Before you know it, that big new thing is now the everyday normal and you’re dreaming up a new goal to strive for. Which is lots of fun in itself, but during those in between times it’s important to remember the little things that brighten up our day.
Just like everyone has their own big dreams, we all have our own little things. They could be anything – a coffee from your favourite cafe on your way to work, buying yourself a bunch of flowers, getting your nails done, going to a yoga class, walking your dog, spending time outdoors or wearing an outfit that makes you feel damn good. For me this little lavender number is something I look forward to wearing and feel amazing in! If you can’t think of what your little things are then write a list. What are the highlights of a normal day for you? When do you feel the best through the week? Pinpoint exactly what your little things are and try to fit more of them in!
What are your favourite little things? And could you fit more of them into your week? I’d love to hear below.
