The Little Things

The Little Things

I’ve always been very bad with self-confidence, being “my own worst enemy” and all.  I never believed anyone sincerely thought good things about me and saw compliments as something that people only really gave out because they had to as friends or family.  However, recently I’ve been working on having a little more confidence in myself.  Since then, believing people has become a lot easier.  In this time I’ve realised how good compliments can actually make you feel.  In life, it’s the very little things that can make you feel the happiest sometimes.

Since I’ve started this blog I’ve really come into myself a lot more and it’s apparently been noticeable.  I’ve had people that I haven’t spoken to in forever messaging me to tell me that they like what I’m doing.  Honestly. it feels amazing.  I have amazing friends and family that I know will always love me and support me.  However, sometimes it’s nice to be reminded that what you’re doing is appreciated.

I was talking to my friend the other day and out of the blue in the conversation they said “I really appreciate the fact you’re always there for me”.  We’re friends, I obviously knew that they kept me around for a reason.  However, sometimes it’s just nice to hear it… to reconfirm what you already know.  Everybody gets insecure sometimes, and everybody you love could benefit from a compliment.  It takes less than a minute to open your mouth or open a text message and say “I love you” or “I appreciate the fact you’re there for me”.  That tiny gesture can have a massive impact on someones day.  

It’s like throwing a pebble into a river.  It will always create a bigger ripple than the pebble itself.  Take a tiny moment every once in a while to improve someones day.  Remind them that you love them, or give a sad looking person a smile.  It could make a world of difference.

Hope you’re enjoying the little things in life!

Lots of love,

    Beautiful post. I’m trying to really work on my confidence but also trying to be a better person. We really tend to neglect those little things although they are so important. xo

      They really are! And I find that it’s not until someone goes out of their way for me that I realise how much the little things really matter, they work towards building confidence and giving them can help us be better people!

    Well said. We leave so much unspoken and make assumptions. Random acts of kindness and that includes compliments do mean something. I agree take the time out and just say it.

Tell me what you think
