All of us have heard that “beauty is in the details”, and I have recently discovered how true that is. The only difference is that, in my case, happiness is in the details. If you don’t understand what I mean, keep reading. 🙂
There are really few things that can make us extremely happy, but only because we do not own them, does not mean that we can’t enjoy our life. What I am trying to say is that it’s the small actions and objects that can influence our mood or the way we see life.
A smile, a new dress, a beautiful landscape, a childhood photo… All of these are things that we sometimes forget to enjoy. In my opinion, the key to a better life is trying to see the good and the beauty in everything.
I am now going to give you some examples of small things that have the ability to slightly or significantly change my mood, and I am going to begin with the object that made me think about writing this article in the first place.
I have been really busy lately with all sorts of tests and exams, and I also had lots of homework to do, and I always hated it and I would always spend a lot of time trying to convince myself that I had to write, before actually starting to do my homework. But that has changed once I bought a new pen. Yes, simple as that.
My old pen had a little crack somewhere, and it was sometimes difficult for me to write properly. And the point was also really thick, which was making my handwriting pretty ugly.
So I bought a new, beautiful, thin point pen, and I couldn’t wait to use it. I’m not only talking about the first time, I still love writing with that pen, and that makes me enjoy doing my homework a bit more.
Another thing that makes me smile is the action of drawing the curtains in the morning and letting the sun in. One thing that I love doing is tying each curtain with a bow, which makes my room appear more welcoming and girly, so it’s just another small thing that makes a difference.
I’m not a big fan of candles, but whenever I feel like my room needs a touch of coziness and warmth, I light my vanilla scented candle, and it instantly brings a smile on my face. After that, I usually read or watch a movie, because that’s what it inspires me to do.
The last thing that I like to do is probably something that you do on a regular basis but, for me, it’s just some occasional interest. Sometimes I feel like my room lacks color and life, therefore some colorful flowers are exactly what I need to completely change the appearance of everything.
To sum up, we don’t need to have everything in order to feel good. It’s the small things in life that we should really take care of, the people, objects and actions that inspire us and enlighten our mood.
