More Small Stuff 16

I am struggling to see the good and light in everything at the moment and finding it hard to be bright and bubbly with a broken arm.  I can not sew, stitch, type, bake or craft, all the things that feed my soul. I can not bear to travel on a bumpy bus, especially as my fracture is not in a cast and mobile, so we are pretty much stuck to the small (very small) village we live in.

The lovey people at Pickle Pie Creations sent me this “Jen Loves”  artwork, which currently has pride of place on my desk reminding me that it is the small things that count.  They are the things that make everyday doable.

I have found that I am using Instagram more and more to keep a record of the things that make my heart sing each day.  It is about seeing the good in everything and the fact that the sun has come out has lifted my heart somewhat.

    It is so good to remember the small things….especially when you are sore and can’t do stuff. Hope it is healing okay. Juliex

    Awwww I love your picklepie pic. And those instagrams are lovely. So sorry you’re in such pain and feeling low hon. This post sounds like you’re making the best of it though.

    Tea, cakes and gentle cuddles sound the best way to go. Hugs. xxx

    Really feel for you at the moment Jen. That art work is beautiful, I really like it. Lovely collection of instagram photos, especially the Orla Kiely pillowcases drying on the line!

    Oh Jen I can’t imagine how hard it must be for you especially knowing just how independent you are. I think it’s easy to let the small things pass us by when the big things seem so bloody massive! But you are so right, we have to hold on to those small things. Oh and the yellow Converse? I’m in love!

    Instagram is perfect for looking out for the small stuff. Since I’ve had my own pain to deal with I’ve taken far fewer photographs. That needs to change. Sunshine helps though. I may have to get myself some yellow cons too. Chin up. We’ll get through it x

    That’s so cute! I think everyone could do with a personalised one of these to cheer them up. I’d just do what you can at the moment and don’t stress. We’re all willing you to get better!

    I too feel like I am in a dark place at the moment, for various reasons. I can see a chink of light and am heading towards it. I think it does us all good to remember the small things that bring us happiness. They don’t need to cost a lot, just mean a lot to us.
