This week i have come to realise that in fact it is the little things in life that make us the happiest. What made me come to this conclusion? A new fountain pen.
Yes a fountain pen, on Saturday I finally replaced my old leaking fountain pen with a brand new shiny one. I know, it's not that exciting or interesting! However, to me this fountain pen was potentially the most exciting point of my week. At first I was horrified by this, had A levels completely sucked all the fun out of my life? Maybe. BUT, once the original horror had worn off i suddenly realised that I didn't care, if a new pen was exciting to me then what did I care about the rest of the world.
I guess in my own round about and strange way is that it is these little things in life that make it worth it. So if you want to get excited about a new pen you should. If you want to listen to Disney music reeeeally loudly you can and if you want to drink fifteen cups of tea, JUST DO IT.
Because (and here comes the cheese, brace yourselves) at the end of the day life is full of lots of downs and you should do whatever you can to fill it with little ups. One day you'll get to the top of the mountain and be able to look back and enjoy the view.
And with that cheesy bombshell I bid you adieu.
