One of my favorite things to do — whether I’m simply grateful or going through a tough time — is to keep track of what makes me happy. There are so many oddly specific loves of mine, and I’m a huge believer in the little things. One of my favorite quotes is the following by Pablo Neruda.
“Take it all back. Life is boring, except for flowers, sunshine, your perfect legs. A glass of cold water when you are really thirsty. The way bodies fit together. Fresh and young and sweet. Coffee in the morning. These are just moments. I struggle with the in-betweens. I just want to never stop loving like there is nothing else to do, because what else is there to do?”
I’m dreaming of this page operating similarly to a mood board. Sometimes I might just post plain text items that make me happy. Other times, images or collages or odes. So welcome to the Happy List.
