Smiling...


So we have discussed the things that we don’t like……………… how about the things we do like?….

In no particular order……. Random things that make me smile….

(I omitted family… as that’s a given.)

The smell of Diptyque Baies candle…
When you smile at someone….. and they smile back…..
The sales assistant that calls when that item you have waited for comes in stock!!
The small child that has never set eyes on you before but looks at you like you are the most interesting thing in the world….
Anyone over the age of 80… they normally say the most inappropriate things….
The driver that gives you way to either drive or walk across the street…
The staff in my local coffee cafe that says in chorus ‘Hiiiii Q’, …. and instantly I feel like I'm in an episode of Cheers…
The grocery store attendant with the toothless smile….  (Its all gummy but its beautiful because he has no teeth but he’s still smiling!!!)
The guy on the corner holding a placard that reads ‘free hugs’
(ok, I haven’t seen him in a while…. maybe he got arrested…. who knows…. But I would like too think that despite the fact that he had deep close set eyes… his intentions were pure….????)
Street performers…..
The first random ‘good morning’
Anyone who openly embraces his or her imagination
Adults in a park on a swing
People wearing headphones that bop and nod their head to the beat…..
Dogs…. Any breed…. I love them
Hot water bottle, Echinacea tea and a good book….on a cold night… They all go so well together.
That perfect outfit that says ‘nailed it’………. I always stop and compliment the wearer…. It’s a beautiful thing!
Any act of selfless kindness
Ok.... your turn!.....

  11. Love this post. Gorgeous outfit and really interesting to read through your list of things that make you smile. Here's just a few of mine:

    The first coffee in the morning
    Sound of rain against the window
    Finishing a good run
    Cuddling up on the couch with a good movie
    Nights in with a glass of wine
    Fresh air
    Fresh flowers
    Seeing my family after months of being away
    Board games

  32. "People wearing headphones that bop and nod their head to the beat and Hot water bottle, Echinacea tea and a good book….on a cold night… They all go so well together"... I totally agree with you ! I'd add "see one less kilo on the scale", especially in this period :P
