Our very first Guest post!

Well, I know it's Caturday, but this week I'm not at J's house, and I decided it was time for a change of pace.
It's a guest post!! Da-da!!
Our first guest post comes from my very first follower and comment-er, Kleo!!
And here it is:

Hi everyone, I am a 20 year old girl from Germany and I really enjoy reading this blog. So I would like to tell you one of my little victories. It really is a “little” victory, but it made me smile very much, so I’d like to share it. Here it is: A few days ago I was sitting at a bench with a friend, when I saw a little boy, maybe four or five years old, and his mum walking there in the park. The boy saw some flowers at the wayside, he seemed to be very excited about them and said to his mum that they were beautiful. He started to pick some of them. But a few seconds later his mum wanted him to continue walking. He looked at me and I smiled at him. He then ran towards me, gave me the flowers and an unbelievably sweet smile and said: “You are very pretty”.  Afterwards he walked away with his mum. I smiled throughout the whole day, because this little boy was so cute and he decided to give me the flowers that he thought to be so beautiful, although I was a total stranger to him. I also think that children are very honest with everything they say, so I always feel particularly happy about compliments from a child.

Besides, in my opinion, the saying “The shortest distance between two people is a smile” is absolutely true! Sometimes, I smile at every person I meet, some of them smile back and some people even seem to be very happy about a little smile given to them. So whenever someone smiles back and is happy, just because of my smile, that is one of my little victories, too.

Ultimately, I want to say that life may often be hard and unfair, but after all, it is short and it is wonderful and valuable. So try to enjoy every moment and concentrate especially on the” little victories” and the small good things that happen around you, because they are so important in life! 

There we have it, I think you'll all agree, a fantastic 'Little Victory', and a great first guest post! Hopefully, you liked it as much as I did. Maybe next time, it'll be your turn! I love hearing about 'Little Victories' so get in touch!!

  1. Life really is what you make it, at the end of the day. A simple smile can make mountains of difference to someone in despair. I say, just live each day as if it were your last. No harm in smiling and you use way too many muscles in frowning.
