It is often pointed out to me how much I complain about things. I like to think that I have been getting better in that sense from a few years ago, although I have a lot of progress yet to make.
Inspired by Ze Frank, I decided to make a list of of the small things that make me happy. I'm not gonna lie, it was one of the hardest things I've had to do in a while. I don't stop to think about these things often enough, and could not come up with a list from the top of my head. I started this post on Saturday (23/03) and could only post it today, after making a conscious effort of noticing what small things in my daily life make me happy.
- going out of my way to step into puddles when I'm wearing rain boots.
- warming up my feet under my computer when I'm cold.
- particularly well worded sentences.
- hearing that pop of air when you open a vacuum sealed container.
- smell of new books.
- Grandma's "bolinhos de chuva"
- being right when you guess the end of a movie/book/tv show
- being wrong when you guess the end of a movie/book/tv show
- a new page on a notebook
It was a fun exercise and I recommend it to anybody who would like to try. What about you, what's on yours list?
