the small things | 2

tree in roath park, cardiff

this past couple months have been pretty rubbish and my spirits are low. i’m generally worn down and i feel utterly hopeless at times. despite this, there are always happy moments, and these ‘small things’ are absolutely what make the dark days brighter.

what’s made you happy recently?

– remembering i had a ginger beer in the fridge
– feeling really properly creatively inspired again
– finding some fantastic botanical/nature books
– delicious gluten free chocolate cake
– my doctor being understanding
– ava snoozing on my fluffy rug
– our garden looking colourful
– flowers everywhere
– saving one of my plants from near death
– seeing my collages on postcards
– my work being in two magazines recently
– visiting the conservatory at roath park
– eating a hard boiled egg for the first time in my adult life
–  spritzing water on my face after a long day
– being able to smell again after my sinuses cleared up a bit
– standing under trees in strong sunlight and breeze, going back and forth between leafy shadows and light
