The little things

With all that is going on in this crazy world of ours, it can seem self centred to have a ‘tough week’, when the things concerning me are minuscule in comparison to what others are going through.

Life really is good and I am so lucky to be in the position that I am, learning so much about something I am feeling more and more passionate about, despite some of the challenges that have been thrown in my path.

To lift my mood, I find it helps to have some little things around the house that perk me up and remind me to smile…

Market fresh pineapple

A minute alone enjoying our lush grass with a cuppa

Native flowers

Ripe tomatoes

White lillies

The first strawberry

Iced water with lemon and fresh mint

Swans made from foil

Herbal tea

My heart goes out to all of the people that are suffering in this world, particularly those in Japan and in Libya who are dealing with situations of huge impact to their countries and their lives.

      Thanks Evie! I actually have no idea what the flower is, but I believe that is has been dyed that colour (considering that my hands went bright pink while handling it). Not bad considering from Coles though… right? :)

        It’s a Protea – and yes, it is dyed. Originally they are from South Africa (one of their sporting teams is called The Proteas), but I think they are grown everywhere these days.

    I know exactly what you mean … life has been a bit up and down for me too of late, but the terrible disasters in the world certainly put our own small troubles into perspective.

    I love the simple things you’ve taken pleasure in … your photos are always so beautiful.

      Thank you Tracey! I suppose big disasters make me be thankful for the things that we sometimes take for granted… and in comparison to all the terrible things going on in the world we really do have it pretty good!
