In each of our lives there are moments that make us unabashedly happy: getting an unexpected compliment from a stranger, finding a forgotten GBP20 in your pocket, or even getting into a bed with clean sheets. Good Things Are Happening guides readers to reflect on these seemingly small moments, letting them become focal points in an otherwise hectic day. This book is illustrated with 52 of Lauren Hom's original, hand-lettered pieces of art that serve to remind readers how ordinary moments can brighten their day. An additional ten prompts ask readers to delve into their positive thoughts by creating reflective lists. Designed in bright, playful colours that mirror the optimistic theme of the prompts, this journal will have any reader finding extraordinary happiness in the ordinary.
