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.


  1. Hello Beth,
    I'm taking the freedom of leaving you this comment because I'm currently working on a fashion-related dissertation for my MSc. I'm doing a survey about the perception of young women towards today's fashion luxury brands, and if you, or any of your lovely reader, could take 5 mins and complete it, it would be of much much help :)
    Here the link of my survey:
    Thank you very much!
    Lou ♥

    Ps: Totally agree on the power of the smell of the rain =)

  2. I totally agree that it is the little things in life that make it great and we should all realise that and appreciate them more! x
