Little things have started to bother me these days. The tiniest of details remind me that I’m not as immune as I thought to being irked. And when that happens, I head to the happy place in my head, where I focus on all the positive little things that I can bring to my mind.
A simple text from a friend, saying hello.
One good word from an editor about your work.
A hug from a young child.
A baby’s gummy smile.
Catching a drip from an ice cream cone on a warm, sunny day.
The swell and trough of a lake wave.
Honey from a honeycomb.
Those are only a few of the things I can come up with, and already, I’m feeling better. Here’s to all of us finding some little things this week that keep us moving forward and making progress.
