Little Things Make the World Go Round
Superior Platform

With the crazy schedules everyone lives these days, people sometimes forget to appreciate the little things in life. I asked around to see what things make people's days, and I got some great answers. This list is a collaboration of my and my friends and family's "little things" that make them happy.


1. Waking up to a good morning text.

2. The smell of coffee in the morning.

3. When a stranger you make eye contact with while walking actually smiles and says "Hi," rather than diverting his or her eyes.

4. Going to petting zoos and petting all the animals.

5. Playing with puppies and kittens.
