20 Things To Make You Smile

The world is ever-changing. Sometimes the minutes seem to drag on for years before we notice anything is different at all. Sometimes it happens in the blink of an eye.

With so much ugliness and hatred in the world, it can be difficult to remember that anything has changed for the better. It can be good to take a step back, reflect, and think about what's right in the world before the focus on what's wrong begins to fill us with hatred, too.

Taking time out to find little moments of happiness isn't escapism. As the saying goes, "You can't pour from an empty cup." Self-care is more important now than ever, so enjoy a little roundup of the beauty that exists around us in all of its wonderfully unique forms.
