Heartwarming Illustrations Showing Love Exists In The Smallest Things Of Life

Heartwarming Illustrations Showing Love Exists In The Smallest Things Of Life

Affected by movies and social media, many of us fantasize that romance is about extravagant enjoyments and splendid expressions. In view of this trend, the talented artist Philippa Rice creates some simple but beautiful comics to remind us that love exists in every corner of our life. Instead of trying very hard to find love, what we should do is to feel the smallest things that we do with our loved ones. Here are the things that you may be familiar with in your relationship:

Sometimes, love means doing small things together like brewing coffee in the morning.

1. kitchen

    Staying next to each other without doing anything special is satisfactory to you.

    2. room

      Sleeping together and hugging each other give you the greatest sense of comfort.

      3. sleep

        You feel carefree and are not afraid of showing your true side to your loved one.

          Even doing household tasks like food shopping is no longer boring to you.

            Hugging each other has become your favourite habit.

            6. hugging

              Love gives you the inspiration to come up with creative ideas to kill time.

              7. dinner

                When you feel blue, someone will always give you support.

                8. rain

                  You’ll easily feel excited about the smallest things in life.

                  9. letter

                    The best entertainment for you is reading on bed after a tiring day.

                    10. reading

                      Building furniture is no longer a chore for you because you know it’s a process of building your home.

                      11. furniture

                        You may ask some silly questions and making unreasonable requests but you know your loved one won’t mind you doing so.

                        12. question

                          You feel blessed that you can cook and enjoy meals together every night.

                          13. cooking

                            Your loved one’s problems have become yours as well.

                            14. trouble

                              Love is also about sharing what you experience throughout the day before you go to bed.

                                And this is what will definitely happen when you sit on the sofa:

                                16. cuddling

                                  You are never tired of looking into each other’s eyes because you can always find the most beautiful universe there.

                                  17. cafe

                                    In winter, no matter how strong the wind is, your hearts stay warm because you hold each other’s hand tight.

                                    18. wind

                                      Love makes you humble. You know when you need to say sorry.

                                      everyday-love-comics-illustrations-soppy-philippa-rice-111

                                        You love curling up like a cat on your loved one’s lap.

                                        20. lap

                                          Love gives you the courage to explore new things.

                                          21. park

                                            You love each other. But you still have some little arguments.

                                            22. compromise

                                              But that’s not a big deal because you forgive each other very soon after the arguments.

                                              23. window

                                                The most important thing is you do not forget to seize the moment.

                                                24. sunset

                                                  What Makes People Happy? 20 Secrets of “Always Happy” People

                                                  What Makes People Happy? 20 Secrets of “Always Happy” People

                                                  Some people just seem to float through life with a relentless sense of happiness – through the toughest of times, they’re unfazed and aloof, stopping to smell the roses and drinking out of a glass half full.

                                                  They may not have much to be happy about, but the simplicity behind that fact itself may make them happy.

                                                  It’s all a matter of perspective, conscious effort and self-awareness. Listed below are a number of reasons why some people are always happy.

                                                  1. They Manage Their Expectations

                                                  They’re not crushed when they don’t get what they want – or misled into expecting to get the most out of every situation. They approach every situation pragmatically, hoping for the best but being prepared for the worst.

                                                  2. They Don’t Set Unrealistic Standards

                                                  Similar to the last point, they don’t live their lives in a constant pursuit towards impossible visions of perfection, only to always find themselves falling short of what they want.

                                                  3. They Don’t Take Anything for Granted

                                                  Happiness rests with feeling fulfilled – those who fail to stop and appreciate what they have every now and again will never experience true fulfillment.

                                                  Advertising

                                                  4. They’re Not Materialistic

                                                  There are arguing viewpoints on whether or not money can really buy happiness; if it can, then we know from experience that we can never be satisfied because there will always be something newer or better that we want. Who has ever had enough money?

                                                  5. They Don’t Dwell

                                                  They don’t sweat the small things or waste time worrying about things that don’t really matter at the end of the day. They don’t let negative thoughts latch onto them and drain them or distract them. Life’s too short to worry.

                                                  6. They Care About Themselves First

                                                  They’re independent, care for themselves and understand that they must put their needs first in order to accommodate the needs of others.

                                                  They indulge, aim to get what they want, make time for themselves and are extremely self-reliant.

                                                  7. They Enjoy the Little Things

                                                  They stop to smell the roses. They’re accustomed to find serenity when it’s available, to welcome entertainment or a stimulating discussion with a stranger when it crosses their path. They don’t overlook the small things in life that can be just as important.

                                                  8. They Can Adapt

                                                  They’re not afraid of change and they work to make the most out of new circumstances, good or bad. They thrive under pressure, are not overwhelmed easily and always embrace a change of pace.

                                                  9. They Experiment

                                                  They try new things, experience new flavors and never shy away from something they have yet to experience. They never order twice from the same menu.

                                                  10. They Take Their Time

                                                  They don’t unnecessarily rush through life. They work on their own schedule to the extent that they can and maneuver through life at their own relaxing pace.

                                                  11. They Employ Different Perspectives

                                                  They’re not stuck in one perspective; a loss can result in a new opportunity, hitting rock bottom can mean that there’s no where to go but up.

                                                  12. They Seek to Learn

                                                  Their constant pursuit of knowledge keeps them inspired and interested in life. They cherish information and are on a life-long quest to learn as much as they can.

                                                  13. They Always Have a Plan

                                                  They don’t find themselves drifting without purpose. When something doesn’t go as planned, they have a plan for every letter in the alphabet to fall back on.

                                                  14. They Give Respect to Get It

                                                  They are respectful and, in turn, are seen as respectable; the respect they exude earns them the respect they deserve.

                                                  Advertising

                                                  15. They Consider Every Opportunity

                                                  They always have their eyes open for a new road, a new avenue worth exploring. They know how to recognize opportune moments and pounce on them to make the most of every situation. Success is inevitable for them.

                                                  16. They Always Seek to Improve

                                                  Perpetual self-improvement is the key towards their ongoing thirst for success. Whatever it is they do, they take pride in getting better and better, from social interactions to mundane tasks. Their pursuit at being the best eventually materializes.

                                                  17. They Don’t Take Life Too Seriously

                                                  They’re not ones to get offended easily over-analyze or complicate matters. They laugh at their own faults and misfortunes.

                                                  18. They Live in the Moment

                                                  They don’t live for tomorrow or dwell on what may have happened yesterday. Every day is a new opportunity, a new chapter. They live in the now, and in doing so, get the most out of every moment.

                                                  19. They Say Yes

                                                  Much more often than they say no. They don’t have to be badgered to go out, don’t shy away from new opportunities or anything that may seem inconvenient.

                                                  Advertising

                                                  20. They’re Self-Aware

                                                  Most important, they’re wholly aware of themselves. They self-reflect and are conscious of their states of mind. If somethings bothering them, they fix it.

                                                  We’re all susceptible to feeling down every now and again, but we are all equipped with the necessary solutions that just have to be discovered.

                                                  Lack of confidence, inability to feel fulfilled, and susceptibility to stress are all matters that can be controlled through the way we handle our lives and perceive our circumstances.

                                                  Learn about How Self-Reflection Gives You a Happier and More Successful Life.

                                                  Final Thoughts

                                                  The main philosophy employed by the happiest includes the idea that life’s simply too short: life’s too short to let things get you down, to take things for granted, to pursue absolute and unrealistic perfection.

                                                  For some, employing these characteristics is a second nature – they do it without knowing. For others, a conscious effort must be put forth every now and again. Self-Awareness is key.
