Little Things That Make Me Happy

Finding Joy In The Little Things In Life, In March.

Time for my March favorites! This is a drawing of all the little things that were making me happy in March. Nothing made me happier last month (or this month!) than new music from Ben Howard! In fact, in less than 2 hours I’ll be watching his live stream concert so please do not disturb around that time.😬
Other things that I loved about March included my regular cold water dips in the river, a lot of picnicking (plus a lot @mr.moonen_wijnhandel wine) and, of course, my plants!⁠🌱
I hope you also had a good month and are having a happy & healthy April so far! Have a lovely day! ⁠💚

Celebrate Little Things, In Drawings.

Celebrate Whatever You Can!

The Holidays are over but there’s no reason to stop celebrating small things. It’s been a tough year and we should be kind to ourselves. You survived 2020: well done! Put on pants today? That’s awesome! Checked in on a friend? You deserve extra karma points for that! Feel like you didn’t do anything worth celebrating today? Remember you are still awesome and it’s okay and normal to feel bad sometimes!⁠ 💚 Hopefully this drawing can serve as a little positive reminder. It was one of my best nine for 2020 on Instagram, and I updated it a little bit for 2021.⁠

Little Things That Make Me Happy

Finding Joy In The Little Things, In Drawings.

Just a cute little drawing of a few small things that make me happy. I could just have easily gone for “Big things that make me very sad and worried” at the moment, but I chose not to do that. Have a good and safe day! ⁠💚

Celebrate Whatever!

Happy Today! I often use special days or fun holidays as inspiration for my drawings, but you really don’t need a special day or achievement to celebrate. At the moment even ordinary things can feel like a real challenge, like putting on pants or going to the supermarket. So today, be kind to yourself and celebrate the small things. It’s a day and you’re still awesome!⁠ (Even if it sometimes doesn’t feel like that.)⁠

Thank God it’s Pie Day!

Happy National Pie Day!

Celebrate Every Win, No Matter How Small

Happy Today! I often use special days or fun holidays as inspiration for my drawings, but you really don’t need a special day to celebrate. Find something to celebrate everyday, especially on Mondays, because they can be a little tough 😉 So, happy Monday! .. and let’s celebrate whatever!⁣
