The little things in life worth holding onto…

Life is something that throws so many curveballs our way that we are left wondering what in the world happened to us? In such moments when everything that we know to be true is upside down, we need to remember that there are certain things in life that just cannot be tainted. We need to deal with the tough times knowing that the good times aren’t all that far away…

# Late night dance parties

No, I am not talking about hitting the best club next to you and dancing yourself to exhaustion. This is something that is even more fun than that. This is about the late night parties you have all by yourself, with your favourite music blasting from the speakers and your hairbrush becoming your mic for the night. The times that you spend purely with yourself and have some of the most fun you have had your entire life.

# Drives with friends

Long drives with your friends at any time of the day are some of the best memories that you will ever make in your life. Cruising down a road, with your windows rolled down and your speakers’ volume blasted high are some of the best times of your life!

# Random moments with strangers

Have you ever had such a moment where you looked at a complete stranger and you both smiled at the very same thing? These moments of connecting with someone you have no connection to are some of the most joyful moments due to their mere occurrence. This could happen to you anywhere, on a bus, train or the street. Who knows, this random stranger could end up becoming someone special to you.

# Engaging your mind 

There are few things as fun and as exhilarating as watching a wonderful movie or reading a captivating book. These will definitely take your attention away from whatever troubles are existing in your life by making sure that you become a part of someone else’s life story just for a little while. Listening to a new favourite song can also be a great way of escapism and can bring you great joy!

# Eating your favourite meal

Don’t we all have those weeks where we eat healthy for most of the days only to look forward to that one meal which we love more than anything else? Whenever you are going through something you feel like you cannot handle, remember the feeling of eating your favourite meal and know that you will be doing that very soon!

# Lying in bed

This is probably the most comforting feeling in the entire world. Just lying in your bed, with your blankets pulled around you and a movie playing on your laptop. If it ever becomes too much for you, this is what you should do after switching off all social media accounts.

Cherish these moments that you spend primarily with yourself and never, ever lose hope.
