Appreciating The Little Things

Bonjour mes amies! As you have seen from the title, this blog post is about all the little beautiful experiences in life that we may not see at first, but are important nonetheless. I was sitting outside watching my pets wander around my yard, when I noticed flowers of every kind blooming in my yard. I felt a sudden burst of inspiration, and started picking flowers and rapidly assembling a flower crown. When I was a little girl, I used to sit in the grass and make buttercup rings, run around with my friends, and use little nuts and berries to make pretend meals. I have always loved making art with nature. Reminiscing about these fond times outdoors, I thought these pictures would be perfect for a post all about the little things that make life enjoyable.

  1. Awesome blog! While reading your list, I realized that many of these things I learned in a course I took called Mindfullness Based Stress Reduction. This is exactly what you are doing and what I have been doing to try to reduce my grief and it does, indeed work very well. You have the right idea for living and appreciating God’s creation.

  2. Loved reading this so much as someone who struggles to let go and notice the beauty and wonder around me from time to time. It’s easy to focus on the ‘bigger picture’ and your broader goals but sometimes noticing the little things, and enjoying moments such as sitting together with my cat and watching the sunrise, is what we need to be happy 🙂 x
