10 Little Things Someone Can Do To Make My Day Instantly Better

1)  Calling me
Texting is great and convenient, but there’s nothing like someone taking the time to call and say hi, ask how my day was, listen to me vent.

2)  Ask me if I wanna go on a drive.
There's just something about taking a drive with no destination in mind that is good for the soul.

3)  Hug me.
Best ever.

4)  Bring me tea and/or chocolate.
Can't go wrong with either one.

5)  Send me encouraging verses.
Because what letter is better to read than the one written from Him?

6)  Remind me how loved I am by God, to them, and to others.
Because sometimes you just need to be reminded of this...

7)  Invite themselves over for a movie night.
I'm a very hospitable person.  I love having people over.  And just so long as they know I have nothing else going on, it's fun when someone texts or calls me and says, "You're not doing anything tonight, so I'm coming over to cheer you up."

8)  Leave me a surprise on my doorstep (handpicked wild flowers were a most recent cheer-me-upper)
How fun is it to come home from a long day at work and discover that someone has taken the time and effort to get you a gift and bring it your own doorstep?

9)  Ask me to tell them about something that makes me happy.
This reminds me to count my blessings...

10)  Kidnap me and take me for a long drive and/or walk.

Again with the drive...but also, long walks are good too.


What are some things that have proven to cheer up your day?


  1. These are literally ten of the best things ever <3

  2. Wow, those are all so sweet. Wildflowers on your doorstep? You truly are loved! Some of my favourite recent pick-me-ups:

    -My friend gave me watermelon socks. I would have been touched by any little gift, but the fact that she knew me enough and cared enough to get me something so in line with my personality made it that much sweeter.

    -My sister bought a mini watermelon, cut it in half, stuck one spoon in each half, took me to the woods behind our house and sat me down for a nice long chat.

    Hmmm... I'm noticing a theme here. Basically, when people buy me watermelon I know they love me : )

    1. I'm so happy that you have individuals in your life who love to show you love

  3. I can totally relate to this. This is an evidence where only the simple pleasures in life could make someone's day. :) Have a nice day, Raquel. Take care always. :)
