After a long hiatus it’s time I dust off this blog. So for my first post of 2019 I wanted to go with something light and joyful. Sometimes when I can’t seem to shake off the sadness I think of things that can make me happy, small things that lift my spirit. So maybe today you find yourself slightly down, I hope this lifts you up.
1.The first sip of coffee in the morning. Green Mountain’s Breakfast Blend is my personal favorite
2.A great opening line in a book. “It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.” – Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice
3.Songs about love. A lot of the greatest songs ever made are about love.
4.Random texts from old friends.
5.”The End” in an old movie. After you’ve been holding your breath in anticipation of every moment the entire movie, those two words let you know that you may breath now.
6.The first “I love you”.
7.Learning cool new facts about someone I’m already a fan of. Did you know that Audrey Hepburn helped the Dutch Resistance during WWII by smuggling secret messages in her lunch box?
8.Waking up and realizing it’s the weekend.
9.Going salsa dancing. 💃🏾
10.Lunch with my coworkers. Where I get all of my tea. 🐸
11.Rainy days at home. Preferably with a cups of tea, and Netflix.
12. Nineties alternative rock. Tragic Kingdom, No Doubt, 1995.
13.The podcast “The Read”. They keep me abreast on black culture while also keeping me laughing from my soul.
14.The laughter of a child. Who doesn’t love the sound a little kid laughing?
15.A bottle of good wine. Paolo Saracco Moscato d’Asti, 2016.
