The Little Things.

"It's the little details that are vital. Little things make big things happen." - John Wooden

I've been a bit stuck for things to write about lately, which is why I'm posting twice today and not on Saturday. Though whilst racking my brain thinking of something I could write about, I decided to have a scroll through Facebook, desperate for inspiration, when I noticed that some of my friends had uploaded the cover photo picture for their 18th Birthday Party. It was a beautiful image of  some fairy lights and it just got me thinking about the little things in life. I don't know why these fairy lights seemed to have such a big impact on me, but they did and that's what inspired today's post.

When I talk about the little things I don't literally mean the things that are small in size, but rather the little things which can completely change your day. For me this can often come from people, and I know I write about people a lot, but i really think that the things people do and say have such a major impact on your day. 

I try to think of the little things in regard to the positive things that can have an affect on your day rather than the negative things. There is no denying it, that if someone does something small which is really awful it can really ruin your day which really does show the power of 'the little thing.'

As I'm writing this post there are a million little things that have happened to me recently which have made my day whether it be a warm cuddle from a loving friend when you're not doing great or whether it be a beautiful message from someone you love. 

When I think about how much little things can change my day, I try as hard as I possibly can to try and do as many little things as I can to make someone else's day, because it's honestly one of the greatest feelings. On my last day of High School my beloved homeroom and I had exchanged messages, and one of the parts of their message was "we will always remember your 'good morning everyone's' when you walk into homeroom" and right now I'm almost tearing up at the thought of this beautiful message, but it really does show that something so small, like the way I greet people in the morning actually did have an impact on these someone else's lifes and I think that's going to stick with me for the rest of my life. 

So today try and do something small, give someone a compliment, smile at a stranger or even just tell someone you love them, because it's indescribable how such small and somewhat insignificant little things can really change someone's day.
