The Simplest Remedy

Sunday, August 2, 2015

I am a compulsive dweller. My mind tends to spend excessive amounts of time on the past, thinking of all the possible should haves and could haves that will never exist. In these moments I find that the most realistic remedy, as cliche as it sounds, is to make a mental list of "the small things".

Bracelets: c/o The Peach Box (here & here) | Hat: Urban Outfitters
Top: Forever 21 (similar) | Shorts: Taobao (similar here) | Bag: ASOS (similar)

Regardless of how often we acknowledge them, we all have our own "small things". From the way someone smiles to a favorite dainty bracelet, there are those simple things in life that give us little boosts every so often. I've lately found solace in exploration. Whether I'm road-tripping to a nearby city or simply finding a new spot for coffee, the ability to discover leaves me knowing that the future holds even more to look forward to. 

Within the hustle of our busy lives, we often forget how quickly these simple things can bring us comfort. I challenge you to write down all the small things that have had positive effects on your life. Outside of travel, some of mine include pretty lattes (blogger probs) and dainty everyday accessories like these from The Peach Box. Both are reminders to start my mornings off with ease. What makes up your list of small things?
