the small joys tag

ello *throws confetti in the air*


today i’m going to be doing a really adorable tag which the amazing Jasmin has tagged me in. her blog is full of life, contains beautiful photographs and quirky posts so be sure to check it out!


the rules:

  1. Thank the blogger who tagged you!
  2. List 15 of your Small Joys (They can be as weird, random, and silly as you want to make them!)
  3. Tag 5 blogger friends who bring you joy (and feel free to say why they bring you joy!)
  4. Have fun with it!

my fifteen joys in life ❤

  • making genuine connections with people and deep talking about life whilst also having the ability to goof around and have a great time. i’m a very introverted person (the myers briggs test puts me at 97%) but i live for meaningful connections that go beyond time passing.
  • kids! i love being around little children because they’re so carefree, pure and unjudgemental. it gives me so much joy watching them grow and mature and become goodhearted people. they just shower you in excitement, ask questions, full of energy and just make me smile and feel alive.

this photo is from a christmas trail i volunteered at where little kids went on a festive little adventure.

  • playing the piano because i loose myself in it. literally all thoughts slow down and i feel very soothed and relaxed.


  • being by the coast – in particular walking down the shore and skimming stones across the waves and getting blown about the wind. something about the sea and it’s turbulent nature makes it quite alluring to me. i feel at peace and free.

  • writing because it’s so very therapeutic and a form of escape and a key to change. reading your responses, interpretations, the emotions it evokes within you, or how you relate to it makes me feel less alone, but also it gives me a lot of new knowledge and insight into the world through various perspectives i may have been blind to before.
  • my penfriend in croatia! it’s so exciting to send and receive postcards, letters, parcels and acknowledge how there really is no boundary to forming friendships. i’ve know this angel for five plus years and the tingle of joys never die out ❤2020-02-20 (7)

  • being a bookworm, and being an addict to good tv shows (often go for the crime/societal issue genre)

  • expressing myself creatively whether that be via doodles or taking photographs or crafting or journalling2020-02-20 (10)
  • my volunteer job within the national trust
  • deep rap songs or dreamy vibed songs that make me think or feel something. artists like NF, Phora, Witt, Jeremy Zucker, Blackbear are some of my go to
  • cooking or baking! especially when it’s for the fam to enjoy

    AHHH I LOVE THIS!! The things you mentioned make me happy and I’m so glad there’s things you love in life. You have an interesting perspective on kids – I wish I could be that optimistic about them but ahh they eat sloppily and all I notice is the gross stuff so we love that for me. I want to start looking at them that way though – do you deal with children through volunteering or experience?

      THANK YOU! I ALWAYS LOVE YOUR COMMENTS – they make my day ❤ Yeah, I always get that response a lot. Idk, lil kids were always drawn to me which is super weird cause I'm like all shy and awkward and quiet?! But then they'd approach me and I'd just talk, mess around, and they seem to have a good time and not wanna say bye xD. Tbf it started with getting on with my friends' younger siblings in primary school and then I began doing volunteer work with kids when I was like 15 and just found the interaction all very rewarding. I'd recommend perhaps running clubs or popping in to help at kid related events once in a blue moon if you want to give yourself a chance to know lil ones better 🙂

        Oh don’t worry I’m always surrounded my kids. My volunteering is in children programs so that’s why i wanted to ask how you tolerate it. I like working with kids one on one but when they’re in groups, I lose a million brain cells. I’m glad they love you though!
