Little Moments Lately 3.15.21 // A List of Good Things

Today, I’m writing down a list of things that make me happy. Plain + simple. I’m not feeling particularly inspired today, so sometimes it’s nice to just go back to the basics and remember the things that bring me joy in life.

  • The feeling of taking a deep breath + filling my lungs with fresh air
  • Brightly colored flowers
  • When someone laughs + smiles so big that you can see crinkles in the corners of their eyes
  • The sound of birds chirping + singing in the spring
  • Handwritten notes
  • Sipping a hot cup of coffee first thing in the morning
  • Ella’s purrs
  • Writing down a quote from a book because you never want to forget it
  • Strangers that smile at you
  • Fresh baked muffins
  • Crossing something off your to-do list that has been weighing on you
  • Forgiveness
  • Dancing in the kitchen to Jack Johnson
  • Re-connecting with old friends + building connections with new ones
  • The excitement of learning something brand new
  • Walking through forests of tall pines
  • Becoming completely immersed in the story of something you’re watching or reading
  • Candlelit dinners
  • The color of the sky as the sun sets
  • The anticipation of going up north in the summer
  • Encouraging, hopeful words
  • Looking out over a lake so calm it looks like glass
  • Going through old photos + the feeling of memories flooding back in
  • Filtered sunlight
  • The reminder that each day is a chance to begin again

Life is filled with good things— sometimes we just have to lean into them. I hope your week is off to a positive start and you remember the simple things that are easy to take for granted. Thanks for being here, talk to you next Monday <3


love always, nik
