I believe there is something magical and special about each and every day. It might sound cliché but the smallest thing can add a bit of wonder to a 24 hour period if you open your heart and mind to seeing it. When I get caught up in stress, negativity, the hustle and bustle of life it makes me turn inwards and towards self-pity; it makes me miss out on the little moments that add glitter to living. The inner turmoil is a cloud around my head that makes it hard to see the beauty and blessings around me.
When I was in high school it was brought to my attention that I look at the world differently. I’d point out cool things around me or share a random fact I found out and be received with laughter and an “oh Bekka.” I never let it harden me, but till this day I still receive resistance to my love of little things, small measures that sometimes make a big impact on my day.
I’ve decided to start sharing these Little Things in a weekly YouTube series, to be posted every Sunday evening. My sister names my desire and passion for magical moments a love for “life nuggets.” I’ve had a hard time over the years figuring out what I’m truly passionate about, but amidst sister conference calls, it always comes back to “life nuggets,” I’m really passionate about life. Ever since I walked away from acting I realized passion wasn’t how much you loved something, but how much bullshit you’re willing to put up with. Well, life is filled with a lot of bullshit and I still thinks it’s an incredible gift each and every day.
I hope you enjoy my little things and please subscribe to follow the series.

I love that you are celebrating the little things in life! And love that nail polish!
Thank you! The polish is Rainbow Connection by OPI, the best part is I got it at Marshalls for a steal.
What a sweet combination of little things that make your day brighter. We should all take this lesson, every day, to stop to see how beautiful life can be if we just notice the little things around us, no matter how difficult our struggles may be.
When I started the series I started to get nervous I wouldn’t see “little things”, I’d run out of content. But the silly thing is, of course I would find little things! Because there is a whole world living around me, people creating, things happening, and I get to be blessed with the ability to see, appreciate, and experience it. Lot’s of love! Now I’m going to read your girl boss article.
This is the best series I’ve ever come across! I have a Passion Planner and it encourages writing down all the little things. I share your love of glitter/confetti (I NEED that coffee mug!), In & Out (a must any time I visit the west coast), and I tried authentic ramen for the first time last Friday with a bunch of girlfriends! Thank you for this post and reminding me of all the awesome little things in life. <3
Oh how fantastic! The mug is from Starbucks, I saw it one day and couldn’t stop thinking about it so I had to have it in my life. I’m thrilled that my little things reminded you of yours.
