Today was a “third alarm” morning. I could not get my eyes to open. As soon as I was able to open my eyes, I saw the sun shining (YAY for sun in Portland!), and the day just felt chock full of goodness. Someone recently asked me what makes me feel “ALIVE.” Today felt like the right day to make my list (in no particular order – except for #1).
- Waking up next to my husband everyday
- Family and friends
- Being present, in the NOW
- Reading a good book
- Creativity (painting, pottery, writing, knitting…recently Photoshop)
- New adventures and opportunities
- A good hard run
- Traveling to a new place
Even on those “third alarm” days we can still jump out of bed, enjoy the sunshine, and be ALIVE with gratitude.
I’m off to go dabble in watercolor. What makes you feel ALIVE?
