It's the small things.

As New Empire's song 'Imagination' goes: "Simply put I like all the simple things." And that is so true; sometimes it's the smallest things that will brighten up your day.

Here are some things, that make me instantly happy, because clearly I'm:

Small things that make a big difference:

  • Compliments from strangers.
  • When someone requests the song that you wanted to hear on the radio.
  • When a musician makes eye contact with you through the crowd at a gig... And no, you're not just imagining it.
  • When people actually help you in a (slightly scary) festival crowd.
  • Pretty coloured sunrises and sunsets.
  • The smell of rain.
  • Looking at the price-tag of something, and seeing that it's reduced.
  • A hot shower after a freezing day.
  • The moodiness of the sky during a storm.
  • When you get every green light when you're driving along.
Sometimes you've just got to sidestep the big picture for a moment, and seek joy in the most ordinary things.  Take time to appreciate the little joys in life, and then get back to the important stuff.
