10 Small Pieces of Happiness 


The other day I had to take our Xterra into Firestone downtown and had a rather unpleasant experience with one of the employees there. Unfortunately, I didn’t have another ride so I was forced to either stay at Firestone with the employee or endure the heat and walk around downtown. I was not in the mood to stay there so I headed down to meander through my favorite local shops for some retail therapy. Retail therapy worked! I found this amazing dress, and then returned to Firestone where the employee said he was sorry for being mean 🙃. I was very thankful that he realized he was in the wrong and then made an effort to fix it. There are many people who wouldn’t admit to being wrong and just go about their day.
Life can be full of unhappy little moment’s like this but that experience got me thinking about the small things that make me happy. I feel like it’s important to find things that make you happy through out the day and so I wanted to share 10 small things that bring happiness to my day.
  1. Since I’ve already talked about this dress I’ll start there. A good outfit can make one feel like a rock star. When I wore this dress to the beach, I felt like a boho beach goddess. I loved the way the fabric floated in the wind.
  2. Sunsets. Alabama has some pretty amazing sunsets. They look like cotton candy taking over the sky!
  3. A Brady bear hug. He gives the best hugs.
  4. Donuts. 😂
  5. Hanging out with my dogs. They are the sweetest babies ever. Taco (our wiggle worm) is getting better at sitting still and will cuddle with you for a full 5 minutes.
  6. Having all of the laundry done and put away.
  7. Car karaoke while driving.
  8. Learning something new. I try to learn something new everyday. Lately it’s been new recipes.
  9. Succulents, flowers, cacti, trees…. beautiful plants in general.
  10. Having an old school paper planner. I love having a planner where I can write things down and cross off items on my To Do list.
Totally random list but happiness can come in random ways. I hope that you have a happy Monday and can find at least a few small things that make you happy today.
Dress: Flat Creek Clothing
Sunglasses: Fossil (Amazon)

  1. I love your dress, and you feeling like a beach goddess. So good for you. You are right, it’s the little things that can and should make us happy. For me, being in nature, seeing beautiful flowers and birds, and hearing their lovely songs, makes me happier than anything else.
