Appreciate the little things.

14 Little Things That Can Make Your Day Brighter
Funny Junk

1. Tiny milestones.

You got up today! You had breakfast! You ran for the bus and caught it!

2. The first snow of the year.

After the initial snow and the next day of playing in it, snow turns to slush and the cold is less fun. But the initial "first" is great!

3. Melty grilled cheese sandwiches.

Like the Jurassic Park theme badly played on the melodica.

5. There are people in your life who love you and care about you.

Your mom or dad, sibling, roommate, friend, or significant other. Someone out there cares about you!

6. Googly eyes put on inanimate objects.

Googly eyes make everything silly.

7. Bubble baths.

Or, if you're not a bath person, a nice, long, hot shower.

8. Dancing in your room as you clean.

You have fun and feel productive afterwords!

9. That one really photogenic cat.

Or if you're not a hug person, the people who respect you and your personal space and give you a high five or a smile instead.

12. All the music you can listen to on Spotify.

There is so much of it! Songs by everyone, all kinds of music for all occasions. There are so many possibilities!

13. Art.

Someone put a lot of thought and hard work into that drawing or painting or sculpture or photograph. And what's really cool is they created something beautiful.

14. Unfilled journals.

Look at all the stories you haven't told yet, all the adventures you haven't gone on. They're just waiting to happen so that you can write them down!

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips.

"Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
