After a long and stressful day, I didn’t think anything could cheer me up.
Not even Jasper who tried with some comforting words.
We were driving towards home.
I stared out the window and that’s when I saw him.
The cutest thing: a puggy dribbling down the street.
If you know me the slightest bit, you’d know that this dog makes my heart overflow with joy.
I went up to the owner and asked if I could cuddle him.
Best minute of my life!
I was thinking to myself “it’s all about the little things in life”.
If I would have a dog like this, I could cuddle him every day and never be sad again.
But would a dog even fit into my current life schedule?
The answer is “No, it wouldn’t be fair to him”.
We talk about a lot the little things in life that make us happy.
Cuddle an animal is one of the most common ones.
But would the owner really appreciate it if every 28 year old would like to pet their dog?
I looked up a couple more common little things that supposed to make us happy.
WARNING: I am bringing out the Skeptic in me 😉
Watch the sunrise and sunset.
I invite you to wake up at 5:30 with me, every single day.
Let’s see if you make it to sunset.
Smile at random strangers.
This sometimes can come off as creepy.
Or worse, flirty.
Someone asking you how you’re doing.
I personally don’t like this rhetorical question.
Have you ever noticed how people at work answer it with “busy”.
Do we do that do that on purpose? Showing off how “important” (not efficient) we are?
In all other occasions you have to answer with “GREAT”. Nobody likes a sad person.
Eating breakfast in bed
Who is going to clean up the crumbs?
Is it even comfortable?
Having a good hair day
But do people really notice it?
Oh right, you’re doing it for yourself!
So people can tell how shallow you for looking in the mirror and taking selfies all day.
What are the little things in life that make you happy?
