Some of life’s beautiful little moments

Hey there!!

So I was trying to think of something to post on this blog since I haven’t posted in a week…I have no writing ready or anything. I’ve been really busy with school and it just seems like everything happening around me is negative. You turn on the news…the world is upside down, everything is terrible and it sucks. All people do is complain, Psychology Today did a study and found that 60 and 70 percent of the average students’ spontaneously occurring thoughts are negative. I want to change that, for myself and others.

So I started to think of all the positive things in my life. Then I decided to think of the little things in life that really make my day. They can be small, like a genuine smile, or big, like someone telling you they love you. I kept thinking of “Favorite Things” from Sound of Music when I wrote them down.

And at the end, I did feel happier. Just thinking of these things made my day a little brighter. What are some of your favorite moments? Tell me in the comments 🙂
