Lyd's Life Lessons

Am I really qualified to give life lessons? Well, that's debatable, but I have been through a lot, and found that happiness really boils down to the little things. All too often I am quick to be angered or saddened by something small, yet I can easily overlook the little joys that life brings me. I have two reminders that help me to do just the opposite, and I hope they can help you, too.

Let's be honest, one of life's great little pleasures is pulling on a brand spanking new pair of undercrackers. The print is bright, not yet faded from the wash, and that pristine elastic gives your bum a lovely firm hug. 

Slipping your feet into silky soft socks is also a joy, and this is why I firmly believe that all of us should have one or both of these fresh new items tucked into our drawers for a day that needs a sprinkle of sunshine. It sounds daft to bestow such a duty on a simple pair of socks, but I promise you that no matter how down you feel, they will give you a little lift, and they're cheap enough to stockpile if you know you've a tough time ahead. Try it and see! 

I'm not sure most people have a motto, but mine is 'there's always something to be excited for'. Sometimes we can be spoilt for choice, with lots of positives ahead of us, and other times it is much more difficult and we must look harder. It's because of those times that I am truly able to appreciate the tiny but lovely elements that make our lives better. Be excited to stroke your pet when you come home, look forward to sipping your tea at the perfect temperature, and of course, get giddy over new knickers!

What little things make you happy?

PS: the starry socks in this post were given to me in a goody bag by Colourful Rebel. I bet they never expected them to mean so much to me!



  1. Such a lovely post. And socks are THE BEST! I love a clean pair of cosy socks!

    1. Everyone says they're a naff Christmas present but I'm always thrilled! xx

  2. It's the simple things! I love getting a brand new notebook, and giving myself time in the morning before work to brew a cup of tea.
