Living my life for the next day and on a search for whatever my happily ever after may be. Life's too short to be unhappy right? If you navigated your way here, stay awhile! Have a nice day!

Life's Little Instructions

Hey guys! I found a picture entitled "Life's Little Instructions." They were all kind of clustered together, but after reading them they were just so sweet and I think they definitely needed to be shared. Surprising how many of them are so simply, yet we ignore them so much each and every day. Maybe we could all start to try and do one or two of them everyday, and it could catch on and become a habit. I know I'm definitely going to try, and it's pretty cool to think that if everyone else tried to do the same then the world could get a little bit brighter every day. I typed them up below so you could read them easier, hopefully you love them just as much as I did. Amazing how such little things have the ability to make you and the people around you a little bit happier.

1. Sing in the shower
2. Treat everyone you meet like you want to be treated
3. Watch a sunrise at least once a year
4. Never leave a toilet seat in the down position

46. Never underestimate the power of love
47. Drink champagne for no reason at all
48. Live your life as an exclamation, not an explanation
49. Don't be afraid to say "I made a mistake"
50. Don't be afraid to say "I don't know"
51. Compliment even small improvements
52. Keep your promises, no matter what

There's a daily dose of reading for you! But really, I hope you found one or two of those that you're going to commit yourself to doing every day. Make it a habit, then the habit will become a routine. Plus, you'll be happier in the long-run if even one of those becomes a part of your day. And you can never have too much happy, right?

XO, Rosie
