Finding Joy In The Little Things

Finding Joy In The Little Things

Posted on: Sunday 5 April 2020

If there's one thing a global pandemic teaches you, it's a renewed appreciation of all the things we previously took for granted, amiright? We're being forced to slow down, find joy wherever we can and appreciate the simplest of things. We're pausing to live in the moment a little more and I don't necessarily think that's a bad thing, in fact I hope that mindset sticks around after this whole thing is eventually over.

Despite the current mess of a world we're living in, I wanted to find my own little bit of positivity and share it, so here is a non-exhaustive list of the little things I'm finding joy in at the moment (please feel free to add your own in the comments).

The morning sunshine casting the most beautiful shadows.

Having the most amazing friends and family there through the highs and lows.

Taking the time to make a proper breakfast and sitting down at our table to eat it.

Finding new and inventive ways to take photos of my outfit.

Making an impressive dent in my long abandoned TBR pile.

Video calling friends and family I haven't seen in a while.

Working out at home and not caring if I look a bit silly.

 Making lots of home cooked meals and feeling relatively healthy. 

Having a garden to sit in and get some fresh air.

Taking the time to indulge in lots of self care.

Spending weekends being creative in any way I can.

Spending lots of quality time with my lovely man.

Taking the time to talk about hopes for the future.

Coming to the realisation that I've put more importance on certain things than I'm supposed to.

Waking up refreshed from a full night's sleep in our cosy bed.

The anticipation of some sunnier weather ahead.

Watching telly in the morning and not feeling the slightest bit guilty about it.

Consuming as many biscuits as my belly will permit.

Waking up to letters from friends on the doormat.

Cat cuddles, taking photos of my cats and pretty much anything to do with my cats.

  1. This is a really uplifting post. I think that this time is hard on a lot of us - but its also time to reflect and realise just how grateful we are for everything. I miss being able to visit friends and family and travel as I please - but it will all be so much sweeter when it is all over.

    1. Thanks lovely I'm glad you found it uplifting and I hope we'll all appreciate the little things more after this all blows over :) xx

  2. This is a wonderful post, and something I relate to so much. It's so strange having such an abundance of free time, and I'm really trying to use it in a positive way. I went through my camera roll a few days ago and just watched silly clips I'd taken throughout the year, which really did highlight how the little things are so important.
