The vast majority of our lives are strings of simple, often forgettable moments. Problem is, most of us seem to define our lives by the “big” moments. We (quite literally) don’t think this adds up.
We’re surrounded by so many awesome things every day. If we really take the time to appreciate them, then the big things won’t be able to make or break us. It may not be foolproof, but it’s definitely a much happier way to live life.
Here are just 25 of the so many little things we’re grateful for:
- Left-hand turn arrows
- Hair conditioner
- Toilet paper
- Online shopping
- Free shipping
- Fuzzy socks
- Google maps
- Down comforters
- Ponytail holders
- The “skip ad” button on Youtube
- The “skip intro” button on Netflix
- Microwave popcorn
- Cute animals on the internet
- Hand sanitizer
- Spell check
- Free Wi-Fi
Okay, so you may not agree with the last one… especially if they’re invading your house. But no matter how you slice it, bugs do play an important role in Earth’s ecosystems—plus they keep us in business!
We believe gratitude is the key to a truly happy life. We’ve noticed that when we’re dialed in to life’s everyday pleasures, it’s way easier to be grateful for the bigger things. Good and bad happens to everyone all the time, life experiences are simply what we choose to focus on. Things just tend to go better when we concentrate on the good!
Finally, we’d like to give a big shout out to our amazing communities and families. You are all a big part of what makes everyday life so incredible, and we would be nowhere without you. Thank you so much for such an amazing year—we look forward to an even better year to come!
