The Little Things In Life

Random Writers: What Get’s You Off?

I’ve been called naïve countless amounts of times. I want there to be good in all people. I try to give and help others more than I get in return. I am the one who is “young and inexperienced” in the world.

A few days ago, I was driving to Wendy’s for my lunch break when I was overcome with this strange feeling. It hit my heart before it hit my head. I sent my friend a text that simply said, “I’m pretty sure this is how life is supposed to feel.” I myself was still trying to figure out this feeling, so when a text was sent back asking what I meant, I had to describe this feeling in words. That feeling that I had? Well, let me put it this way: I’m a sucker for the little things in life.

I have constructed a list of my own “little” things. It is the simplest way to give you everything off the top of my head….I hope you enjoy! J

Random Writers would like to thank Shelbie Langlois for being a guest contributor to our site for this week’s topic. Shelbie is pretty sure she doesn’t know what to write about herself. She loves her blooming career at Publix Supermarkets, music, meeting new people, and cats. She lives in Cape Coral, FL, and her room is normally a mess. She expresses herself through her writings, drawings, and music. Facebook creep if necessary.. 🙂
