30 Day Writing Challenge: Day 1

  • List 10 things that make you really happy.
  1. Being in viewing distance of water, especially if I can see it from the place I am staying. Lakes, rivers, or even a pond will do… but the ocean has my heart.
  2. Opening a brand new planner and getting to fill it in with all of my special dates, sports events, and people. (I did this yesterday!)
  3. Rain. I love the way it smells, the way it sounds, and the cozy feel of the dark clouds. I don’t mind the occasional lightning and thunder either.
  4. Snow. Snow feels magical. It is so graceful to watch as it falls. It sparkles like millions of little diamonds in whatever light it is in… and something about it quiets the world outside .
  5. Fresh cut flowers… of ANY kind…but especially gladiolas, roses, or tulips.
  6. Fire in the fireplace, firepit, or campfire. I love watching the flames dance, the smell of the smoke, and feeling the warmth.
  7. Travelling (solo or with one other person) and the time before I travel… during the planning and waiting/anticipation period.
  8. A good cup of tea… in a favorite mug or tea cup. My favorite is black tea with Truvia (sugar, if I want it to feel really indulgent) and a splash of organic half-n-half or heavy cream.
  9. A clean house. This is harder with kids…. but when it happens, it feels amazing!!
  10. Alone time AND being with people I love. I’m happiest if both of those needs are met frequently.

I would love to hear what you thought!
