Little things we take for granted sometimes

It’s the little things in life that make it extra fun. Besides the obvious ones we cherish – our health, our families, our jobs, having a place to live, something to eat  – there are lots of things we enjoy on a daily base without even realizing it. Here are a few moments of true joy that we probably take for granted too often. Oh, and good news: most good things come for free (or with just a tiiiny price tag)!

Grabbing that morning coffee. On the train station, from that coffee place right around the corner, or a home made cup of black goodness. Either way: the scent is priceless and it’s the perfect way to wake you up and get you started.

Being asked for advice by friends and coworkers. Because they trust your opinion and they value what you say. Insert tap on the shoulder here!

Being able to move nearly wherever you want. If you’re itching for a change, you know you can pack your bags and explore new places. There will be a new job or a new home for you somewhere out there.

Running a few miles in your own neighborhood. Lace up your sneakers and go! You are feeling safe in your city, you live in a good place. Treasure that.

Calling your best friend in times of need. When anything goes awry he/she will be there. It’s the same friend who emails you funny pictures of cats. The friend who is always down to try the newest cocktail bar.

Ordering dinner when you come home tired. Having the privilege to eat sushi all by yourself, while watching tv in your pajamas is a true blessing!

Listening to you favorite music. Walking around town when the sun goes down, with the tunes that make you happy. It’s one of the most relaxing things to do.

What your favorite little happy moment of the day?

Let's talk


    happiest moments?

    – seeing my kids in the morning and grabbing a quick cuddle

    – walking my Havenese in the park and getting ready for the day

    2, 3 and 7 I agree with, I love knowing I can move and that music will uplift my spirit :)

    Great post! Also a good reminder for myself to appreciate the little things in life a bit more. Today: eating a few pieces of Tony’s Chocolonely Salted Caramel Seasalt.

    Nom, nom, nom! ;)

    Being able to sleep uninterrupted is my blessing.

    Coulden’t agree more! Sleep is awesome!

    When my son runs at me shouting “HUGS & KISSES!!”

    That’s SO CUTE!!!


    a glass of wine on the balcony

    Enjoying nature! That’s one of the biggest pleasures in life: a full moon, a sunset in the montains, the sea breeze… It’s free, it’s healthy and it gives you peace. It’s great! Coffe too, though ;)

    when the annoying kid goes to bed
