On a day where work felt almost too much to bear, and life feels hard, and my heart feels heavy, and my eyes are tired- these are the days I need to write happiness lists. These are the days I need reminding that while things may sometimes seem awful, they perhaps are not endlessly so. This too shall pass.
Being greeted at the door with a gin cocktail on the warmest day of the year so far.
Wearing heels to work three days in a row.
Saturday morning coffee dates, with a man who brings me flowers.
White t-shirts tucked into swirly midi-skirts.
Completing the crossword. Between us, we do it almost every time.
Feeling like I'm becoming the woman I always thought I would be.
Thank you cards, hen parties, and save-the-dates.
Carrying armfuls of flowers and second hand books home.
Craft fairs and croissant dates with beautiful friends.
The warmth of the spring sunshine on my shoulders.
