Happiness comes from the little things.

Hi everyone. So, I havnt blogged for a few days but I wanted to write this post because lately, I have been down in the dumps. Feeling downright sad. Today though I woke up and thought, I don't want to feel like this anymore, I want to feel happy.

Cue happiness coming from the little things. They may seem trivial aspects of one's day but they are often the most important.

Today I loved:

-Walking around in my new 'house socks' (see below) which my dad has lovingly renamed 'the granny socks' and yes, i dont care as they are comfortable haha!

- Watching trashy TV shows for fun

- Reading Miranda Hart (British comedians) new book and laughing out loud.

- Eating mango, papaya and passion fruit yoghurt (i am currently hooked).

- My name necklace arriving :)

- Catching up with my friends

What makes you happy and did anything make you really happy this week? let me know :)

ps- I have decided to use less of other peoples photos on my blog and so a lot of my posts will be written or i will post up my own images. Lotsa love. E  


  1. You are so right! Happiness DOES come from the little things in life. The litte things that we sometimes take for granted. Beautiful post Eleanor :)

  2. It is the little things that make you smile. Last night I was asleep because i was so tired and my boyfriend crawled into bed, he curled his arms around me and it made me so happy. Just a little thing as a hug can make all the difference! =)

    I hope you feel better dear! =)

  3. I understand you...have been feeling the same lately. But, I am determined to get out of it. I think I'm just overly tired as my youngest keeps waking through the night. I shall listen to music that makes me happy and read more books, do some exercise to get the blood flowing as it's meant to give happy endorphins to the brain. I shall forget about the weather and pretend it's spring already ;) I do hope that your mood lifts and you feel happier soon :) xx

  4. It's important to be grateful for little things :) What makes me happy? Food! Hahaaaa <3 I love to eat, so by eating delicious foods, it calms me down :)


  5. I feel this way a lot too. Your honest is refreshing. :)

  6. happiness definitely comes from the little things. i've learned that through husband :)

  7. Sorry to hear you have been down! Glad to hear you are finding happiness! Trashy tv always is a quick fix!

    Also it's nice to hear from you again recently! I also love your blog header!

  8. Good for you for waking up and deciding to be happy! And, you are so right - it's the little things that we need to find comfort in. :)

  9. It can be hard some days but it sounds like you had a wonderful day with your happiness attitude:) It is those small things that can make us happy they don't need to be big at all. Going outside today and watering the garden on my own made me happy today, it's nice to have a little time to yourself. I hope that tomorrow will be a happy day too. x

  10. I have been wanting a name necklace for a long time now, and I agree that hanging out at home in cozy socks is the business! I also miss watching trashy tv shows as a way to let loose after a horrible day at work! -Jessica L

  11. trash shows! they make me happy sometimes too:) x ashley
