Alright alright. It’s time to get cheesy. Today is the first day of the 31-Day Writing Challenge and, to kick off the month, today’s prompt is:
What are 10 things that make you happy?
Honestly, this question isn’t as easy as it appears. (Am I supposed to mention actual objects that bring me joy? Can I include people, even though they aren’t technically things?) (I did it anyway.)
In no particular order, here are 10 of a lot of things that never fail to make me happy.
1. Walking my dog.
(Although usually it’s him walking me, LOL)
With lots of spread & fresh grapes that pop in your mouth.
3. Freshly-cleaned bedsheets.
That fresh out-of-the-shower feeling as you climb under the sheets. It’s like Heaven on Earth. Is it just me?
4. Tarot card readings.
Nothing can change my mind on this. 😂 (Many have tried.) They’re just fun, to give and to receive. Let me live.
5. My tattoo.
It hurt a little bit.
Nothing like a fresh, cold glass of Pinot Grigio on a warm day. Or the sweet, cinnamon-y taste of mauled wine during the winter holidays.
I’m no connoisseur by any means, although I’m not opposed to the idea.
Not only does this help with me a morning/evening routine (which I need and love), but who doesn’t like healthy, vibrant skin? (I’ve been using these three products forever and truly can’t get enough.)
Oh, the places you’ll go!
9. Sunsets & sunrises.
There’s something always so calming about them…
10. My family & friends.
Duh! (Below is a non-exhaustive collection of said persons.)
I’m very pleased with this little self-reflection exercise, and highly recommend you make a similar list, as well as.
Until Day 2 tomorrow!
