Little Things to Make You Smile

I always know I'm in a good mood or feeling happy if I catch myself sporting a big goofy grin just going about my day-to-day business. All it takes is a simple moment or a kind word to perk me up and get me grinning. However, sometimes, and I don't think I'm alone on this, a smile is a lot harder to come by than it should be. In an attempt to make every day smile worthy, I've put together a list of little things that always leave me with a happy feeling. Check them out and add your own!

  • Getting a random hug from someone you love.
  • A latte executed just how you like it.
  • Rain on your roof at night.
  • And a sunny morning the next day.
  • Scarves, purses, and new shoes!
  • A phone call from an old friend.
  • Green lights all the way home.
  • Receiving an actual card in the mail.
  • Getting dressed in the morning and realizing it's going to be a "skinny" day.
  • To see the rest of my list


  • Finding $20 in your pocket.
  • Seeing pudgy baby legs poking out of a stroller.
  • Coming home to a clean house.
  • A work day that flies by.
  • Licking the frosting off a cupcake.
  • Free parking.
  • Seeing an elderly couple holding hands.
  • Puppies and kittens.

What little thing puts a spring in your step?
