Daily Twinkles

A lot of times, for me at least  I get so wrapped up in seeing the big picture come to pass that I miss all of the daily twinkles of happiness along the way. A lot of the sparks of fun in life don't come with the big victory at the end of the journey, but they come every single day in the little things that make you smile. So today choose to notice the smaller things. They may seem unimportant but on the contrary they are just the things that make every day so darn fun. So slow down, look around & enjoy. That is what I choose to do today & here are some of the things that I have realized make me smile & make my days that much better..
  • New razor blades that make shaving not nearly as annoying
  • A cute coffee mug that makes me look forward to my morning cup of Joe that much more
  • Jeans straight from the dryer
  • Brand new, never opened magazine that arrived in the mail
  • Favorite pen that writes just right!
  • Reeses peanut butter eggs (best candy ever! that is the tastiest peanut butter)
  • Writing on the first page of a new notebook
  • Physically crossing off items on my To Do list
  • The sound of rain when your sleeping
  • Lotion that smells like the beach when it is freezing out
  • Opening my Birch Box of goodies
  • Getting out of the shower & not freezing
These are just a few of the things that put a smile on my face so far. I am blessed to have so many little moments of joy throughout the day, even if I don't always realize them. I love life's little blessings! Take some time & think about the little things that bring a twinkle to your day. I would love for you to leave a comment & share with me some of the things that have brought a smile to your face today.

Slow down, look around & enjoy
