We spend so much of our lives thinking about the future. From exciting moments like creating elaborate ideas and fantasies in our heads about where our lives will lead us, who we’re going to spend the rest of our lives with, what we’re going to wear tomorrow or stressing out about deadlines and bills, we’re always thinking ahead. We very seldom I think solely about today, which got me thinking: why don’t we celebrate the moment we’re in right now?
We all say “it’s the small things in life that matter most” but do we actually appreciate them enough? There are so many wonderful things to be thankful for and while everyone’s list is probably a little different, we can all probably agree on the key things that make us happy: our health, friends and family. Take the time to send that special someone in your life a quick text saying you’re thinking about them. Think about how great it makes you feel when one of your friends or your partner sends you a random text saying something sweet or funny. It can change your whole mood for the better and make your entire day that much more special.
One of the random little things that makes me happy is fresh flowers. I love the floral smell and I love how they can light up a room. Usually, I’ll go to the grocery store or the local farmer’s market, buy my own flowers and make my own floral arrangements. There’s just something so relaxing about peaceful about taking the time to make something so beautiful yourself. I also love how they look when I’m working at my desk. They relax my mind when I’m stressing out about getting things done for my website or traveling for new projects.
So what are you waiting for? Make this moment right now even more special!
