10 things that make me really happy

Day 1 #30DayWritingChallenge

1. List 10 things that make you really happy

I wrote a bonus one. You're welcome.

  1. The sound of my kids laughter. My daughters have my laugh which is that inappropriately loud, “did that just come out of you”? laugh. I love it. I could list all ten as things my kids do, but I won’t. 
  2. When I have worked hard at something, and then have achieved it. A project. A to do list, waking up in the morning. I like to achieve with others, so I love winning at team sports, or if we’ve lost, but we played our asses off. 
  3. Practising self love and feeling good in my own skin.
  4.  The smell of my Dad’s cooking. My faves are his Saturday breakfast, and Sunday toanai.
  5. Cool breeze, quiet day, sunny skies, and submerging myself in cool ocean on a hot day. Preferably at Vaisala Beach. With an ice cold Vailima.
  6. Cake. And other sweets that caress your insides with sugar and love.
  7. Witty banter, laced with laughs. A conversation, or reading something that just connects and has me saying, “Yaasssss, This!”.
  8. New experiences. Learning new things. Visiting somewhere I’ve never been before. A new country, a new restaurant, a new Target store opening in the neighborhood. 
  9. Hugs that make you feel safe.
  10. When my life goes according to plan. This rarely happens, but when it does, I feel like the actual architect of my life, which makes me feel bad ass. #GodComplex 
  11. Time with my family. When it’s not insane… oh wait, its always insane. Lol Love it.
