Sometimes it’s the small things that make you happy. We all tend to always focus on the bad. It all sucks and things are never gonna get better, right? But in the midst of utter chaos, it always helps to keep an eye on the little things that brighten your mood. And in order to not forget about them, it’s best to write them down.
So here are 5 small things that make me happy right now.
Christmas Gift Shopping
Yes, I know it’s only the middle of November BUT starting your Christmas shopping early will make your December so much more enjoyable. I already got a fabulous gift for my mum and ordered something rather dashing for my little brother. 2 down, 5 more to go. Currently, I’m having so much fun browsing through the shops for things to gift to my loved ones. Speaking of, would you be interested in seeing gift guides up on the blog this year?
Lunch/Dinner Dates with Friends
Friends and food are probably my two favourite F-words. Combine the two of them and you’ll have me beaming with delight. We went out a couple of times for dinner with friends and are having friends over for lunch this week. I can’t tell you how happy enjoying good food in good company makes me.
I honestly hate surprises. Not know what others have in stock for me always makes me nervous because secretly I always think everyone hates me and wants to push me down a cliff. Just kidding – or am I. Anyways, I’m currently prepping a few awesome surprises for you guys for Christmas and just seeing everything come together makes me so happy.
Good news, I’m finally out of my reading slump and back in the reading game. So there’s gonna be lots and lots of book content coming up in the next time. If escaping into a fictional world and exploring everything that it has in stock for you doesn’t make you happy, then I don’t know what’s wrong with you.
We’ve had a couple of really gloomy and dark autumn days here in Austria in the past few weeks. However, I feel like this always makes you appreciate the sun more when it does come out to play. Whenever it comes out you can see people streaming outdoors and enjoying some lovely crisp hours in the sun. What’s not to love?
