The Little Things (Master List)

Inspired by another little things blog I ran across many years ago!

What is a little thing?

It’s basically things or moments or feelings that happen throughout your day that makes your day better, but you may not consciously recognize it. Example: Stepping into an air-conditioned room after being outside on a hot day.

My goal for sharing this?

I started The Little Things e-mail list to my family, friends, and colleagues around eight or nine years ago. It’s a habit in my life I love doing because it allows me to walk through life with a new perspective and it grounds me to reality during hard times. My hope is that after you read this list, you will walk away feeling inspired or feeling more uplifted!
