It's easy to get caught up in the chaos of every day life and forget the things and the people that matter, so today I wanted to take the time to share what I love most in life. I cannot express enough that before you love anyone else you first must love yourself and your life. Today the world is filled with so much hate and distain and it's so sad. If you simply remember what you love and what makes your heart full it makes life a lot more enjoyable. Lately I have been crazed and stressed and haven't taken the time to appreciate the good things in life, so here's a list of what I love.
1. My friends.
Without these lovely people life would be pointless. Friends who love you no matter what are truly a gift and should be appreciated every second of every day.
You literally cannot function without sleep and every night I look forward to crawling into my bed. Sometimes a good nights sleep is the solution to everything.
Without yoga I would actually go insane. My love for yoga has also helped me to love myself and everyone around me.
Sunsets are the most magical sight in the world. Something about just sitting and watching the sun melt into the ocean cures a multitude of ills.
My love for summer cannot be put into words. Life begins over again with summer. Beach days, sun kissed skin and salty hair, late night drives on summer nights, it couldn't be more perfect.
Obviously. I love writing and get to express everything I love through it.
Life without laughing would be pretty boring. Laughter is contagious and can brighten even the darkest of days. There is no better feeling than laughing until you can't breathe or until your stomach hurts.
8. The smell of lavender.
This is and will always be my favorite smell. Nothing is more comforting and relaxing than the smell of lavender. Even though it seems silly, it's one of those little things that matter to me so much.
Nothing say "I love you" better than a good hug. Such a small gesture is filled with so much meaning and can have a great impact. Everyone could always use a good hug.
Because if you don't love yourself, who else is going to?
There you have it! There are definitely more things I could list but those are the ones that came to mind. So on this Valentine's Day, and honestly every other day, make time for the things you love. Spend time with friends, take a nap, paint, work out, whatever it is, just do it. I also love you amazing people who read my blog, you truly don't know how much it means to me! Happy Valentine's Day!
What do you love?
