I was given a subscription to Real Simple magazine for the holidays this year, and my first issue came early! Skimming through the first few pages today, in large print, I saw the question: “What is the one small thing that always makes you happy?” I’m not sure I could ever settle on just one small thing that always makes me happy, but I definitely wasn’t surprised by the first thing that came to mind. Chocolate. I thought for a second more, and what came to mind next, was something I hadn’t really thought about (consciously anyway) – but there it was, a sensory experience that puts a smile on my face everytime. Warm sunshine on a cold day. You know those days where you feel chilled to the bone, and then the sun peeks out from behind the clouds, brightens up everything, and suddenly it feels far warmer than it actually is. Kind of like you’re standing on your own miniature tropical island, even if only for seconds. Aaaaahh.
What little thing makes you happy?
