Ever notice how you get a warm feeling just talking about the things you like? It's an affirmation of yourself, too. I like, therefore I am. So make your own list and think it over when you're feeling blue (à la the song "My Favorite Things" from The Sound of Music). Turn over those objects mentally in your head for a little boost.
So here's my list, non-exhaustive, mind you...
Tea parties and all that goes with them.
And while we're on the subject of tea, I do love my delicate tea cups I bought in Bruges years ago that are such a warm burnt orange and rimmed with gold.
Muscari or grape hyacinth flowers. Adorably elegant with those little blue flowers.
Girlfriends! Need I say more? Here you see Caro, Marine and Karine, dear work pals.
My lime green dish-washing gloves. They make me feel invincible when I plunge into grimy water. Washing dishes is a little more bearable with these babies.
Winter days that give you hope that there will be sun around the corner. Or that give you an excuse to stay inside and be cozy.
Picking up my muffin from school at the official end of the school day. I can do that for the next few weeks because my hours at the internship are shorter than when I'm in class.
I could go on, but maybe I'll save that for another post. In the meantime, I think I'll spread the joy of favorite things by tagging Crystal, Amber and Jessamyn to make their own lists, if they so desire. And, you, dear readers, I'd love to hear what's on your list, too.
