Let the little things tickle your fancy! Get ridiculously happy over a letter that arrives in the mail! Smile at that toddler that waves at you from his mom’s shopping cart! Laugh at the antics of your puppy! Appreciate the beauty of flowers in your garden! If the little things make you happy – so be it! People who let the little things make them happy get to be happy way more often than people who wait for the big things.
