Things To Be Happy About // 05

Because there's always something to be happy about. Read more here.

SUNDAY. Trying out a new recipe for the first time. Realizing it's so easy and so delicious that you're kinda mad at yourself for not trying it earlier.

MONDAY. An hour-long phone call with a friend a thousand miles away. Talking about her new job, your new job, food, old jokes, words you hate. Realizing in the middle of it all that you rarely talk on the phone, but you like it. Feeling grateful for a friendship so pure.

TUESDAY. Holding a boy's hand in the movie theatre for your seventh Valentine's Day in a row. Watching a movie that's so well done and with a story so remarkable it brings you to tears.

WEDNESDAY. A sunset that ignites the sky. Driving down a road that looks like it leads directly to its center. Pinks and purples and oranges and yellows. Wondering how you can watch the same sun set every day yet it looks different every time; still manages to stop you in your tracks.

THURSDAY. A 45-minute kettlebell class. The instructor notices you're using a lighter weight than usual and brings you a heavier one. You groan at the challenge but you're also glad because she's pushing you.

FRIDAY. Working at a place with such strong comradery that after eight hours together, you go out for a few more. Talking, laughing, and sipping a mojito at a tiki bar, leaving the work week behind you.

SATURDAY. Waking up not to an alarm but to nothing in particular aside from the feeling of being well-rested. Stretching from head to toe, tightening then loosening. Sore muscles, a clear head, sun peeking through the blinds.
