Optimism V. Apathy
Thursday, May 07, 2009
I've been down lately, just sort of phoning it in, you know? I guess I'm waiting for the next thing to reveal itself in my life. So until then, I thought I'd make my own list...as a reminder of how truly fortunate I am. Optimism FTW!

things that bring joy to my life

happy occasions celebrated with friends
finishing a great book
Brianna Grace
when I get the chance to help someone
Morton’s Cajun Ribeye
screened porches
handwritten thank you notes
a cold beer
Grant William
when the dog stretches out along my torso on the couch
singing along out loud without embarassment
potbellied toddlers in leotards and tights
fountain diet coke
Bonnie Raitt
peep-toe D’Orsay high heels
tree swings
Pet Odor Eliminator Febreze
when someone tells me they appreciate me
pepper jack cheese
having a plan
getting a really amazing haircut
uncontrollable laughter
the song “Video Killed the Radio Star” by Buggles
travel to unusual and amazing places
bluegrass string music
a real hug
the way a sprung wooden floor groans and creaks during a dance class
being needed
Honey Nut Cheerios
slipping into cool, clean sheets
mixed greens with red onions, cherry tomatoes, and orange bell peppers
the way snow-covered holiday lights glow
coffee for dessert
jeans with a white shirt and sneakers
enormous umbrellas
Eric Clapton
live sporting events
