Things I like

Since I’m new to this WordPress thing I went searching for blogs to follow that will hopefully help me with this whole “aging” thing and stumbled upon Cheri Lucas Rowland’s blog, specifically the “Things I Like” post. My eyes were opened. Maybe I’ve been looking at this thing the wrong way entirely? Maybe instead of being afraid of the things I haven’t accomplished, I should focus on the things that I like about being 28 going on 29. Right? Seems like a good idea anyways. So, in no particular order, these are the Things I Like:

  1. Staying up late and feeling like I’m the only one awake in the world
  2. Waking up under layers of blankets when the air around me is cold
  3. Twilight, and the fact that in this light the world looks like it could just be waking up, or getting ready for bed
  4. The stray black kitty that sometimes joins me for my nighttime walks
  5. Feeling my main squeeze pull me in closer in the middle the of the night
  6. People watching
  7. A really, really good Mocha
  8. When I capture the perfect shot, on accident
  9. Long drives with the windows down, my hair flailing in the wind, and my feet sticking out the passenger window
  10. Taking naps on the dock in the summer heat

If someone would have showed me this list 5 years ago, I would have laughed and said that this person is probably old. Funny how seeing this list now doesn’t  make me feel old at all, it makes me feel content.
