I think I’ve written several posts about my love for this show. This is my comfort show that I still re-watch up to this day. I am addicted to this show and I am proud to say that. I still choose to re-watch this show even though there are a lot of new series and shows that you can watch these days.
I guess I love the show because of reminding me how simple life was back then. I love the low maintenance friendship they had. There were no phones, no need to take pictures of the food before eating it lol. They really talk to each other with no distractions. Every time I feel sad I watch one episode of Friends and after that I forget why I was sad in the first place and I’m not exaggerating on that.
This show instantly puts a smile on my face and when they did the reunion I teared up of the thought of why wasn’t I old enough when this show first came out and why did I only watched it when I was in college? Either way I’m glad I watched it because it is the best show ever. If you haven’t watched this show yet I am judging you lol.
How about you? What are your favorite little things that makes you happy?
I could never go a day without listening to music. I feel so incomplete when I forget my earphones especially when going to work as I take the public bus to go to and from work, music accompanies me through it. Also, I sleep with music on as I couldn’t sleep without it which I don’t recommend since I sleep with my earphones on, I do set a timer though.
While we’re on this topic let me share with you a playlist of songs I’ve created on Spotify I named it Ignore The World as I listen to this playlist to “ignore the world” and drown out the noise of reality.
I think all of us has specific songs that we listen to every time we want to be alone and for me these are those songs. I am a lyric-centered type of listener, I focus on the lyrics more than the melody most of the time that is why most of the songs in this playlist are mellow. Listening to music is one way of focusing our mind on one thought and when you’re the kind of person whose train of thoughts doesn’t stop, music is one of the most effective way to slow that down. Also, discovering artists that perfectly explains how I feel in a song makes me feel seen and understood.
That is why I want to take this moment and appreciate what music does and it is probably one of the greatest pleasure in life that we take for granted.
Do music also uplifts your mood? Share your playlist with me. 😄
One of the things I get excited about going home from work is knowing I get to chill back and play my favorite game which is The Sims. I’ve been a fan of the game for a long time now. The Sims is probably the greatest simulation game that there is right now. I get to live a different life playing this game lol. I spent hours building houses and playing different storylines. Who says it’s a boring game when I’m a serial dater who’s a full time spy? (yep, I created my female version of James Bond).
I got into playing video games when I was very young since my brothers and sister would play all the time on their Playstation and I would wait for them to finish playing so I could play after them. I used to spent countless hours playing even when we’re told to stop and rest our eyes we would still play. Today, I’m appreciative that I still get to play and now I have my own device to play with so I don’t need to wait for anyone to finish playing lol.
They say video games is a great stress reliever well it really is. It is not just to past time anymore, it is an effective way to keep your mind off of things, an effective escape to our stressful life.
Do you play video games too? What’s your favorite game?
How about you? What are your favorite little things thatmakes you happy?
Lately, it’s been raining a lot which is my favorite type of weather. The cloudiness and gloominess of the sky gives me that calming feeling. One of the little things that’s been uplifting my mood lately is the rain. I know this is a silly little thing to be happy about but I want to take a moment and recognize the feeling I feel when it rains lol.
Every time that it rains I instantly feel at peace, if it isn’t even that weird I would gladly walk in the rain just for the hell of it, just go outside and just wander around in the rain lol. I had this fond memory of really enjoying this type of weather when I was in high school, we had this field trip in an amusement park but it was raining nonstop and other people had their umbrellas and was bummed out, they were not enjoying their day but me and my friends were having a blast even though our clothes were soaking. We didn’t mind the rain and we just enjoyed all the rides, that was a great day for us.
I don’t know what it is about the rain maybe it’s the smell and the sound of the raindrops that adds to that cozy feeling and to pair it with hot drinks, music, and a loved one? What more can you ask for right? Just the idea of lying in bed all day and feeling the cold breeze is so soothing. So, I want to appreciate the rain these past few days for giving me this kind of feeling.
This kind of silly thing is one of the things that we don’t really pay attention to, it’s not much but it gives us that comfort and peace even just for a little while.
How about you? What are your favorite silly little things that makes you happy?
Hey, since it’s quarantine season again here in the Philippines I decided that I want to do something positive on this blog for a few days. I want to focus on the things I love rather than think about what’s wrong in the world. I rarely do this because I was so used to writing about pain and misery since I find it more interesting to write about. So, for the next few days I will try to list down the things that’s been making me happy lately in my life that I usually take for granted.
I think I’m speaking for everyone when I say that we unconsciously focus more on the things that stresses us out and we take for granted the things that give us that relief. Often times, we get swallowed by the everyday living and forget about the little things in life that calms us down. So, join me for the next few days and recognized the little things in our life that gives us joy, the “temporary” happiness that we hardly acknowledge and what we think is too shallow. Let’s appreciate these little things as it helps us get through life or even just for a day or even just for a moment.
P.S. I had this draft for months now and I thought it’s perfect to work on this draft during this lockdown again which is unfortunately our third one for this pandemic. Also, shoutout to Shahrin from SmallMomentsofWonder she posted this blog about Small Pleasures Of Life back in February and it inspired this post.
