Sometimes it’s the little things we surround ourselves with that make the most impact on our moods. Whether it’s a favorite book that we could just keep going back to or those fresh flowers you add to your shopping cart at the grocery store or cut from your garden. My walls are lined with drawings my kids have done in art class, a shelf here or there holds a souvenir from a special trip and my mantle almost always has a vase of fresh flowers. These little things can be like a warm hug and add comfort to my day, or allow me to reflect on a memory or even just brighten my mood with a sense of gratitude.
Look around where you’re seated right now, there’s bound to be something nearby that allows you to recall a memory that is sure to bring a smile to your face. At least I very much hope so.
