I am happiest when I dive into a new book. When I take a warm bath with bubbles and wine. When I get to see my person after a long day at work. When I set a new personal record at the gym. When my hard work doesn’t go unnoticed.
I appreciate a perfectly ripe piece of fruit at any time of the year. Breakfast in bed or in a booth, either way it’s my favorite meal. I love pairing coffee with an early morning sunrise. Uncontrollable laughter, the kind that makes your abs hurt. Having the opportunity to travel, experience culture, give back and be a role model in my community.
I happiest when I look over at my crowns because they are more than shiny objects. They are proof of dedication, commitment, and motivation. I love crisp Autumn air, hot tea, and snuggles on a cold day. Wearing my favorite outfit and conquering the day. Complimenting others and watching their whole face light up. Binge eating my favorite childhood foods (Mac & Cheese/Doughnuts).
For all these things I am beyond grateful, including the struggles, the heartaches, the milestones and all the love and support I have received along the way. There are so many beautiful, simple reasons to be happy. What are yours?
