50 Things

Before sitting down to write today, I grabbed this “Wordsmith Deck” that my dear friend Cassy-Anne bought me for my birthday last year… or maybe it was for Christmas… inconsequential. Cass and I were wrapping up a phone call as I turned on the laptop. I told her I was going to pick a card to write from today.

I pulled a card and kind of pouted at the prompt. I said, “Well that’s crazy. I’m not doing that.” In retort, Cassy-Anne said, “I bet you could.” I’m not one to walk away from a bet. So, my dear readers, here are 50 things that make me smile.

  1. Coffee
  2. Watching Peanut do anything (yes, even chew the couch)
  3. French fries
  4. Talking to my parents
  5. Reading
  6. Writing (particularly with a pencil)
  7. Sunshine
  8. Super-hot days
  9. The Office
  10. Alf
  11. Schitt’s Creek
  12. “The Jason Ellis Show” on SiriusXM
  13. The Golden Girls
  14. Pretzels

  25. Planning classes and workshops for my wellness team
  26. Naps (bonus points for bed-naps)

  35. Making plans and changing lives with the aforementioned Cassy-Anne
  36. Cozy sweatshirts
  37. Studying with my Mastermind squad
  38. Tattoos (once they are healed… I don’t often smile while getting tattooed)
  39. The color purple (as in things that are that color, not necessarily the book… but the book is important, too)
  40. Challenging myself
  41. The morning
  42. Quiet
  43. Being in the company of confident people
  44. Fuzzy slippers
  45. The aromas of jasmine, geranium, rose… I can go on and on with these…
  46. Watching someone skateboard
  47. Connecting with people… having authentic dialogue
  48. Games
  49. When people say thank you and give recognition
  50. My readers, the dedicated and the newly-arrived

There you have it… and I think it’s time for you to write your list of 50 things that make you smile! Bonus points if you write it with someone who makes you smile.

Much love.
