Reminding myself of myself

It's easy to want to copy other's dreams, especially when they have a holy fire driving their passions and pursuits. Who doesn't want to be a part of God's mission in this life?! He is doing extraordinary things all over this planet, and very personal things inside my heart. In the midst of comparison, I have lost sight of things I enjoy, not just because others like them too. I did myself a favor last year and wrote down many small things that bring me happiness, and I thought I would share them with you:

- Wild flowers
- Full moon (especially dancing under one!)
- Warm bear hugs
- Antiques, furniture with character and a story to share
- Inspiring, true stories
- Situational Humor
- God's perfect timing
- Dark hot chocolate (or peppermint)
- Fresh countryside air
- Sunlight in the morning, waking up the world
- Creative Artwork, something that makes me think, give me perspective
- Bluegrass tunes
- Color Coordination
- Scratched off To-Do Lists
- Alliteration
- Blue Mason Jars
- Good hair days
- Reading in my hammock
- Decorating, expressing myself through design
- Jelly Beans
- Yardwork, getting my hands dirty for a purpose
- Outdoor or drive-in movies
- Sweet surprises
- Deep conversations
- Rooftop gardens
- Swing Dancing
- Healthy recipes
- Exotic lands
- Froyo (need I say more)
- Peach cobbler
- Candles, all burning at once
- Silky bubble baths with a good read
- Mountain top views
- Watching sunrises and sunsets with ones I love
- Using it up ("it" being shampoo, cereal, makeup, etc. Satisfaction comes from using things to the last drop and freeing up space in the house)
- Recycling
- Handwritten letters
- Walking buddies
- Burlap and lace
- Ball gowns that make me feel like a princess
- YouTube surfing for funny animals
- Being entertained by my cat
- Best friends who know you inside and out

What I love about this list is that it continues to grow as I continue to find things that peak my interest. See more pictures of what I love on
