What do you love?
Is it a book? Your favorite bench in the park? That song that you used to sing to as you drove in the summertime.
Cartoons? Scrabble? Your goldendoodle named Fergus? That big, fluffy, golden monster who smiles at you with such big innocent eyes after he’s ripped open the last of your decorative pillows. Your favorite fat cat that you love even though you have to lift her everywhere she wants to go and sometimes your arms get tired–but she’s really cute and a great listener?
Listening to that band in your room? The little place where everything is quieter. Away from the craziness outside. A sanctuary where you can feel safe.
Badminton? Handstands? Chess? Cute animals? Soccer? Being with your best friend? Sitting across from that one person who really gets you? Looking at maps?
Laying in the grass? The snow? Summertime? Wintertime?
When the tulips finally bloom? Bob Marley?…maybe not…
Submarines? Travel? That picture of you on top of the Eiffel tower? That picture where you cut and paste yourself onto the top of the Eiffel tower?
What makes you happy?
The sea? The smell of sunscreen?
Photography? Art? Finding another plate with a pug-faced Persian cat on the front? Broccoli?….Okay, fine…chocolate? Taking a bubble bath? Fixing your bike? Being quiet? Being loud? Singing? Dancing? Reading? Kayaking? Fencing? Flower pruning? Bowling? Watching the sun come up? Watching the sun go down? Sleeping underneath the stars? Getting an awesome hat and wearing it everywhere just because it makes you feel a bit more like you’re a heroine from the 1700’s. Twirling in a new dress? Twirling in an old dress you haven’t worn in a while? Picking wild flowers? Eating gummy bears till your too full to have supper–and that’s great news because now you don’t have to make it!
Holding someone’s hand? Taking a sick day and staying in your pajamas all day?
Doing yoga in the the morning? Making tea just the way you like it?
And now my last question…
Have you done it yet today?
