100 Things I Love 2.0

One of my favorite posts on my blog  is 100 Things I love. It’s so important to never forget all the good things, of which there are so many. I have been having some very dark days, but I know that everything is going to be okay. I will get through it, and I will come out of this better than ever. This I know. I have to trust that whatever has happened, happened for my greatest good. In the meantime, there are so many good things to focus on. Let’s  start with 100 …

  1. Walking barefoot in the grass
  2. My job. Yep, completely true. I may complain at times, but I know that this is one of my greatest blessings.
  3. The Owl and the Pussycat — something that my grandfather used to read me.
  4. Knowing undoubtedly, that no matter what cruelty there exists, that it is outweighed by kindness. Not just a by a little, but exponentially.
  5. When it’s raining, but I’m dry and cozy.
  6. Binge watching a really excellent series on Netflix. GLOW is my drug of choice at the moment. It’s fun and frivolous with lots of cool songs from the 80s.
  7. Fridays
  8. Making choices from a place of love rather than fear.
  9. Art that makes me feel something
  10. Grilled cheese sandwiches: that moment when you cut it in half and pull the two pieces apart, watching the cheese stretch.
  11. Kind shoulders to cry on for those days that u need one.
  12. Pay checks
  13. When a man holds the door open for me.
  14. Plane journeys
  15. A good conversation. It’s an art. So many people are surprisingly under skilled in it.
  16. The Classic Gateway Theater in Ft Lauderdale, in all its retro chic glory.Screen Shot 2017-08-05 at 10.57.27 AM
  17. When people have a smile in their voice. I wonder if there is a word for that. There should be.
  18. When I get recognition for something I did right at work.
  19. Birthday cake
  20. Accessories, especially shoes. They don’t care if my ass looks less than ideal.
  21. Adventures
  22. Treating myself to an overpriced goodie “just because”
  23. When someone gives me their undivided attention
  24. Leaving my comfort zone and proving to myself I am capable and stronger than I knew
  25. Having choices
  26. Calling in sick from work and going to the mall
  27. Skeletor memes (perhaps you’ve noticed)61564192
  28. When you realize that life goes on despite losing that person who you didn’t think you could live with out.
  29. Smiles from strangers and being brave enough to smile back (for shy people, sometimes this does require bravery).
  30. The Kindness Rock Project. I learned about this from one of my customers. I thought it was such a beautiful concept. I’d love to find one, and I’m inspired to make a few. 
  31. My new friend MJ. I don’t meet friends that often, so our new friendship is very special to me. We have so much in common. She is Birdy’s brother’s widow.  I simply adore her. 
  32. Old friends, the ones that stick around and stand the test of time.
  33. Blackened grouper tacos by the water at Jimbo’s Sandbar
  34. The feeling of hope.
  35. Instagram: if you are not following me, what are you waiting for?
  36. When goodies come in the mail
  37. Knowing “I can handle it.” That never used to be the case.
  38. Generosity of spirit
  39. Moments of synchronicity
  40. Chris Rock. I saw him at The HardRock in March. I think he is one of the funniest comedians out there.
  41. Sitting outside on the porch reading a good book or flipping through a magazine
  42. Days when I go shopping and lots of cool clothes fit me … and I have the money to buy them.
  43. The Law of Attraction
  44. Being brave
  45. Letting go
  46. Conversations so enthralling that you don’t even notice the passage of time
  47. Rago shapewear: it hides a multitude of sins. Muffin tops are now a thing of the past. They may not appeal to everyone’s taste lookswise, but these put Spanx to shame.
  48. When the tables turn and you are now in the position of power …. Soooo yummy! 
  49. When I can get away with being a slacker

  61. Florence + the Machine. Florence is a queen.
  62. Getting lost and finding wonderful places in the process.

  64. Being in a position to give
  65. Uplifting quotes, I collect them.963af50b626ee0bf58bcb455a3cfde0e
  66. I recently discovered the awesomeness that is Carla Harris. The woman is a powerhouse. She has such good, strong, positive energy. She talks a lot about business, but I find that her pearls of wisdom can be used for a lot more than  climbing the corporate ladder.
  67. Getting my hair done at a fancy salon.
  68. The Guerrilla Girls
  69. Overpriced candles for bubble bath experiences
  70. Those who are brave enough to dream despite having fallen
  71. Feather blankets, one day I shall have one.

  73. People who genuinely want to see you do well in life.
  74. Paintings by Edward Hopper — especially his paintings of women.f56e83ede92a459ec8823934fa812bc3

  76. Handsome man candy
  77. Decluttering: my room, my heart, and my head.
  78. Celebrating my birthday in Paris this year with my very dear friend.
  79. Layering my face in tons of $800 face creme at the duty free shop in Paris before returning home on my flight back to America. I’m so naughty … but my skin looked great and hydrated, so not sorry.
  80. Ladybugs
  81. Robert Indiana’s love sculptures. I look for them whenever I travel somewhere new.Screen Shot 2017-08-05 at 10.51.11 AM
  82. That feeling I get when I know I’ve helped someone.
  83. Ralph Smart / Infinite Waters
  84. Moments when I am wrapped in perfect peace
  85. Sing Street, a great movie. 
  86. Butterflies: I asked the Universe for a sign, and she returned me the butterfly I asked to see. Since then I’ve been seeing quite a few. Tons actually.
  87. Bookstores
  88. Airline credit: enough to book a mini getaway to NYC methinks! Fingers are itchy to book my next adventure. This time I think I might explore Brooklyn a little.

  94. Being able to extract the beautiful memories from my past relationships and learning to focus on those good parts. Inside the pain, you can always find some beauty if you look hard enough.
  95.  Yoga. I used to do it when I lived in London, and now I’m taking it up again. I did my first yoga class yesterday. 
  96. Constantly coming closer to the core of my authenticity. With every year that passes, I become more and more myself, and I really love who that person is.
  97. Jim Carey. Not because he is funny, but because of this
  98. I was issued a corporate credit card … wow, like I’m a business woman or something! I wonder if I’ll get the chance to use it.
  99. Those intrinsic things about individuals that make us unique. They are our special gifts that can never be stolen.
  100. Love

There is so much to love. I am making myself ready to be able to love even more. That’s partly why I exist I think: to love, to appreciate and take joy in all these wonderful things, and then to discover even more to love. I can think of nothing better. Truly.

What do you love? I invite all my readers to take up this challenge with me and name 100 things that you love too. You would be surprised by the magic that results. I genuinely believe if we are greatful, we attract more things to be greatful for. It’s basic Law of Attraction daaahlings, and this stuff works. Send me a link so I can check yours out if you decide to do a list of your own.

    Heartfelt hugs and oceans of caring to you.
    Years badk (decades?) I stayed at a Bed and /Breakfast which dried its bed linen (and it was linen) on lavender bushes in the sun. The smell and feel of those sheets….
