36 Simple Things That Remind Us What Life Is Really About
Lexi McCarthy

Sometimes we take the small moments for granted. It's important to remember that while life is made up of a bunch of big moments, the little one can be special too. Here are some of the things that we should always take the time to stop and appreciate.

1. Long car rides with the music up and the windows down.

2. Catching up with someone, and talking to them like no time has passed.

3. The look on someone's face after eating something sour.

4. Cuddling with someone you love.

5. Getting thrown into the water by friends, when you didn’t want to get your hair wet.

6. Movie nights.

7. That smile in that picture that is perfect proof of how happy you were when it was taken.

8. The late night food runs.

9. Pool games.

10. The “let’s eat takeout on the floor” kind of nights.

11. The first time he tells you that you’re beautiful, and every time after that.

12. The days that it feels like nothing went wrong, and you’re just happy.

13. The days where everything went wrong, but were filled with comfort by people who love you.

14. Carnival rides.

15. Achieving a goal of yours.

16. Contagious laughter.

17. Those friends who you can tell anything and everything to.

18. Phone calls that last longer than an hour, without you even realizing it.

19. Spontaneous meetups with people.

20. When someone knows exactly what you need in a certain situation.

21. A really good cup of coffee in the morning.

22. Traveling.

23. Sitting around a bonfire with friends.

24. Picnics.

25. Watching your favorite sports team win.

26. Getting lost in a song.

27. Eating your favorite food.

28. Listening to the best throwback songs in the car.

29. Receiving a hand-written letter from someone.

30. Photo booth pictures.

31. Eating dessert before dinner.

32. Dancing like nobody's watching.

33. Seeing the look on someone’s face after you’ve helped them with something.

34. Brunch.

35. When a baby wraps their whole hand around one of your fingers.

36. Spending time with your family.

….And so much more. Life is full of wonderful things, and sometimes we just need to be reminded of them.
