I’m not really sure how it happened, but over the past 6 months or so I’ve gotten slightly obsessed with having fresh flowers in the apartment. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have already noticed this…
I never used to be a “flowers girl.” They didn’t really do it for me. I thought, what’s the point of spending money on something that’s going to be dead in a few days anyway?
Such an optimist, I know.
After getting flowers here and there over the past year, though, I realized what a huge difference they made in the overall vibe of my
shoebox-sized tiny NYC apartment. Even if only for a week or few days, I love how flowers bring a little bit of nature into my 5th floor walk-up. Life. Color. Happiness. They’re a little touch of joy that when I walk out of my room in the morning make me smile and feel a bit of extra excitement for the day ahead.
The point I’m trying to make isn’t about why you should have flowers in our house/apartment. It’s about making a point to intentionally place Happy Triggers throughout your day.
I know, Happy Triggers is the cheesiest term ever. But it works
I always knew the importance of the little/simple things in life, but lately – as I find myself rushing through the day from one thing to the next – I’m realizing how important it is to strategically place those things in my life, right where I can see them.

We all have those little, seemingly insignificant things that actually make a bigger difference than we might realize…
What are yours?
