Simple Living: Tiny Daily Tweak

Thursday, February 2, 2017

I've been making a conscious effort to make my day-to-day life more enjoyable and beautiful by filling it with tiny pleasures that are hardly noticeable and probably wouldn't mean much to other people, but they make a huge difference to me.

For example, ever since I started to read Lisa's blog, I noticed that every time she photographs her coffee, it's always beautifully set on a cloth napkin, never directly on the table or on a random coaster. After a while I started to do the same in my own home. At first just for the pure love for aesthetics, but then I noticed that this rather simple act of consciously making my surroundings more pleasant contributes to me having a better and more fulfilled day.

It's so easy to go through life without really thinking about all the things we do, but how about just stopping for a minute to make that small chore more enjoyable or more special.

Just a thought...

P.S: Wash your bowl.

That is a sweet idea, I can appreciate the little things we do which give us joy, even the smallest actions matter, because every little thing adds up.

How lovely! As soon as I have my very own espresso machine moving in, I will make a ritual out of drinking my coffee as well. It really is the little things, isn't it?! xo
