These are a few of my favorite things (in no particular order):
- Sunny days, with clear blue skies
- Getting together with friends
- Having my family around me
- Laughing, hiking, biking, yoga, and dancing
- And, when Winter is over
Taking advantage of every opportunity to do any (and all) of the above fills my heart with glee and joy. Accepting and initiating invitations is key. Miss someone? Call them. In their neighborhood? Stop by. Want to explore? Do it w/ a friend. Frolic, laugh, talk story.
Friends are the gifts we give ourselves.
Between now and Sunday, I look forward to eating at the Indian food buffet with my friend, exploring a new-to-me museum with another friend, and going out to dinner with yet another friend. Spending time with loved ones is paramount.
My first-grade teacher, Mrs. Lawrence, implored me to ‘use my time wisely.’ She would be happy that I do just that.
