These Are A Few of My Favorite Things

I have learned that when one is feeling blue, there are a multitude of things that help lift the spirits.

The other morning, I colored. Yes, I’m an adult and I still buy coloring books and crayons. Although these particular crayons were not self-bought, but were a gift from a very dear friend. Glitter Pirate crayons! How could you go wrong? With the selection of shades, I dabbled in my Hello Kitty coloring book and my Marvel Heroes coloring and activity book.

I can’t say it enough, but it really can be the simplest things that bring a smile to someone’s face.

This morning, I did another very simple thing: I made a list. A list of things/people/places that make me smile, or that I just truly enjoy. Sometimes I think we get lost or forget what truly makes us happy because we get caught up in what everyone else likes. Not everyone, but I think it happens to a good amount of us. I know it has happened to me on more than one occasion. You want to feel accepted, so you go with the proverbial flow. Things that you like? Well, you don’t share them because you don’t want to feel out of place or silly. I wouldn’t call it conforming, but you hide your true self.

Thus, my list was born. I warn you that it’s a very long list, but a great one none the less!
