  • Celebrating the great things in life.The wonderful little surprises that come my way. The feeling of contentment that suddenly washes over me. The sensation of being alive.
    The homeless man who told me I was beautiful
    The silly things my kitten types as she walks across my keyboard
    The burning in my lungs as I force myself to keep running
    Reading a good book in the bath
    Reading a good book anywhere for that matter
    The man playing a kazoo as he drove down Bardstown Road
    Talking about nothing with friends
    Being spontaneous
    The smell of cigarette smoke on a summer night
    Looking in the mirror and thinking "I look good"
    Clean laundry
    Family time
    Being naked
    Rolling my windows down and turning my music up
    Laughing until I cry
    Apartment cleaning that turns into a dance party
    Seeing people I love find happiness and success
    Caffeine rushes
    Understanding that things are starting to turn around
    Knowing that I am loved

    And then some
