THINGS THAT MAKE ME HAPPY

  1. The feeling of complete and settled happiness and comfort when I'm with people I truly love
  2. Listening to Stevie Wonder while I cook, especially spaghetti and meatballs
  3. A hot shower and comfy clothes on a cold and rainy day (Seattle is one giant raindrop)
  4. Solitary walks in the late afternoon or night
  5. Checking something off a to do list
  6. Finding someone new who inspires me
  7. Realizing that time heals everything; most things aren't permanent unless you want them to be
  8. Looking forward to things (could be tomorrow, could be next week, could be this summer)
  9. My dogs
  10. Any dogs
  11. Realizing how far I have come in terms of rebuilding my relationship with my sister
  12. Falling asleep quickly
