As we live our lives, from time to time it can feel like we’re treading water and that we’re surrounded by the same old ‘greyness’ and it’ s true that the world can be a terrible place for all kinds of reasons, however there is beauty and joy in even the little things we see and do every day if we are open to seeing it … Continue reading It’s The Little Things
I haven’t posted here for a while. Not for any particular reason. It just kind of happened and maybe we need time away from things or even people to reflect and appreciate them more when they come back. I always wanted this blog to be about rallying against the negativity and cynicism in the world by seeing and appreciating the positive that is in the … Continue reading Bring It On…
Sometimes things don’t go well and yet other times they do. Whatever is happening in the world, sometimes it’s good to just step outside yourself and have a good time for a while.

I popped into the nearest bar to hide from the elements and while I was in there I noticed a girl of about 5 running … Continue reading How Can Hailstorms Help Us To Be Happier
