Life is filled with ups and downs, and these first two months of 2019 have been exactly that. The one thing I always strive to do is focus on the good things in life that I’m grateful for. It has been over a year since I did one of these posts, but they are always my favorite posts to read because it reminds you to focus on the positives in life. So here is a look at the little things in life that have made me happy recently!
A week of warm weather. It was so nice to experience spring at the beginning of February, even if it was just for a little bit. I was finally able to go for long walks without freezing.
Finding a hat that I actually like! I have always been convinced that I just didn’t have the right head shape for a hat. But recently I found 2 at Target that I really like.
Starting a workout routine. One of my goals for this year is to strengthen and move my body more, and it has so far been going good! Although I’m a little sore, I have been feeling better overall and it’s nice to have a routine every day.
Being greeted by my little fluff ball in the mornings + when I come home. There is nothing better than coming home to see 10 pounds of fluff being so excited to see you.
Finding my self-confidence. There are always moments where I start to doubt myself and everything I do, but I’m slowly getting better at just believing in myself.
Getting some fresh flowers to brighten up the gloomy winter days.
As odd as this may sound, I found a new toothpaste that I really like and that does make me happy.
Getting better at being able to have caffeine! My body has always reacted so badly to any caffeine, and by caffeine, I mean decaf coffee. This has always bummed me a bit because I love the taste of coffee so much. Recently I’ve been making decaf lattes and my body seems to be okay with it.
