Sometimes I think it’s a good idea to remind myself of what makes me happy. You know, in case I forget. So, in honor of Groundhog Day (why not?), here is a list of things that make me happy. Some of these items make me happier than others (see last) but all contribute to putting a smile on my face at some point.
Sunday afternoons spent reading a book on the couch. If there’s a fire in the fireplace and football on TV as background noise, all the better!
Taking the long way to the office so I can pass Lawton Stables in the morning.
Coffee talk with best friends.
When Woody (my canine kid) puts his head on my lap and looks at me with big brown eyes.
Cooking Italian food for a house full of friends.
Falling in love. And staying there…
Dancing! Dancing! And more dancing!
Laughing so hard my stomach hurts.
Being creative. Being unique. Being collaborative.
Giving pet names to my favorite people. And my car. And my iPod. Alright, I pretty much enjoy naming everything (My computer’s name is Della).
A trip down Memory Lane.
Photographs that inspire.
What makes you happy? Write it down. Refer to it often.
Smile. Laugh. Play!
Until next time…
