25 Little Things That Make Daily Life Fantastic

The prompt from Writing 101 was to make a list of some sort. Originally, I was going to make a list of how my life had changed due to chronic illness… but then I realized how depressing that list was going to be. Living with chronic illness is challenging, at best, and can make it impossible to see the good in life. So, I decided my list needed to be happy. A major change is how much time I have to stay at home, and how trips and adventures have had to move to the back burner. I spend most of my time at home. Because I spend so much time at home, I decided to focus on what I love about my daily life. So here it is:

25 Little Things

  1. the feeling sheets have first thing in the morning, that really soft and cozy feeling – especially when I don’t have to jump out of bed right away
  2. owning my own house, and remembering that every morning as I look aroundFirst Anniversary and Our House
  3. the fact that Dan wakes me up every workday to kiss me goodbye – even when I can barely remember it
  4. yoga pants, sweat pants, baggy tshirts
  5. not have to wear a bra around the house 😛
  6. the color of my powder room walls powder room walls
