The Importance Of The Little Things In Life

They can make us the happiest.

The Importance Of The Little Things In Life

Sometimes in life we get caught up in everything and our day-to-day routines that we forget that the greatest joys can come from the smallest things. Routines can be good, but you may forget to realize and notice the little joys in life that make us so happy. When you start to realize just how nice the little things in life are, it makes you take a step back and see just how beautiful life really is. If you start to appreciate and realize these little things in life you may just enjoy it all a bit more. Here are some of my favorite little moments in life:

1. Crawling under the warm covers after a long day

2. The smell of freshly baked cookies in a kitchen

3. Making someone else smile

4. Walking outside and feeling the warm sun on your face

5. Finally seeing someone you have not for a long time

6. Long phone calls with your best friend

7. Getting a compliment from someone

8. Listening to your favorite song

9. Singing loudly in the car

11. Seeing snow flakes fall down

12. Looking at old photos

13. Finishing a great book

14. Hugs

15. Not having to set an alarm for the next morning

16. The smell of rain

17. The smell of coffee when you first wake up

18. Putting on sweatpants

19. Long drives with your best friends

20. The first beach day of the Summer

21. Talking to your family on the phone

22. Lazy Sunday mornings

23. Going to concerts

24. Warm summer nights

25. Seeing the leaves change colors in the Fall

26. The last day of school

27. Getting a good grade back

28. Getting packages in the mail

29. Free stuff

30. The first sip of water after working out

31. Burning your favorite candle

32. Wearing a new shirt

33. Getting into bed with freshly cleaned sheets

34. Reaching a goal you set

Clearly, there are hundreds more, but these are just the ones I could think of on the spot. The beauty of life is in the little things. Yes, there are always going to be hard times in life and obstacles we must overcome. However, by focusing on the good things, that are sometimes the most simple moments in life, it is much easier to see the beauty of life as a whole. These little moments end up making the big moments in life. So if you begin to catch yourself forgetting about those tiny things in life that can make a big difference, then you can start trying to focus on these smaller moments in life that will show you the true reasons we can be content and happy in life. Enjoy the little things!

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.
