Holla for the good things in life!
This weekend, I watched Eat. Pray. Love (as I’m sure you gathered from my facebook status). And I’ve decided give the good things in a life a shout out that they don’t often get because sometimes the bad things take over.
Well..move over bad things! The good things are coming in!!
-Microwave popcorn! Bring the movie theatre home! How cool is that?! The man who decided that, genius I tell you! Now you could make an argument for all the chemicals, but lets face it..we still eat the stuff.
Independent Coffee shops! Awesome! Even better with friends I tell you!
Starbucks/random tumbler cup of ice water. No idea why it’s great, it just is! We all have one, you know what I mean. And if you don’t, go get one and you’ll understand!
British Television! Awesome I tell you! We all have that favourite British show, be it Downton Abby, Doctor Who, Monty Python, or Heartbeat (if you don’t know what it is, check it out! It’s awesome!)
Clean clothes! Clean laundry is awesome and it makes you feel like a respectable citizen of the world, plus it’s reusing clothing!
That moment when you look at yourself in the mirror and instead of automatically putting yourself down, you think “I’m beautiful” and you genuinely mean it! Greatest feeling ever! If you are ever fortunate enough to experience this, hang on it with every fibre of your being, that for this moment, and don’t ever let anyone tell you different—including yourself!
Joan Holloway on Mad Men—awesome..just awesome!
Italian Pizza as big your face! Greatest thing ever! Savour it! Love it! tell the guilt to shut up because you’re eating!
Gelato—GOOD! Tell the guilt to shut up! You’re eating!
Moments of solitude—going to let that one speak for itself
Friends—awesome! I appreciate them more than ever!
Coming to terms with your anxieties in life—greatest thing you can do, because once you admit to yourself the thing you have been denying, you can learn to work with it, and hopefully one day past it.
Netflx—also great! It’s how I got hooked on Mad Men
Hand written letters from friends—we don’t write letters anymore. But I was fortunate enough to have that as my only means of communication with a friend of mine for two years. Seeing a letter addressed to you by hand, and trying to decipher their messy writing, and wondering why they used that particular colour of pen, is so wonderful. I will keep every single one forever.
When you’ve decided to change the path you’re on in life, and the amazing options and possibilities there are with this path. It’s scary and frustrating, but exciting at the same time.
Now my challenge to you! Think of some good things in life and write them down. Before you know it, you’ll realise that there are more good things than bad.
