My Favorite Things in Life

Self Discovery Prompt

Open up a fresh page and write,”My favorite things in life.” This is especially helpful if you are going through a rough, somewhat hopeless and dry period in your life.

Most of the time as the human beings that we are, we tend to focus our attention on all of the things that may be going wrong at a particular time instead of taking time each day to acknowledge all that is good. With that being said, my favorite things in life include: baseball and the New York Yankees. I love watching them play on TV, experiencing the rush of watching a game live in the Bronx, and feeling my nerves get jittery when I don’t know if they are going to win or lose. Swimming is also another one of my favorite things in life. Being able to be in the water, carefree, floating, outside in warm weather, enjoying a beautiful day brings me peace. I also love watching movies. Movies are my favorite because they allow me to escape into a completely different scenario other than the one I am presently in for an hour or two, drawing me in and altering my emotions to either make me laugh, cry, or become scared for those within the movie. Another one of my favorite things in life is school. I don’t think I would have put this on here if I wasn’t thinking about it, but school is amazing. I gain so much every time I am in a class, and every time I participate in a different activity. My experience as a college student has been far better than I could have ever imagined, and I am grateful to be excelling. Acceptance is my favorite. Being able to be in places where I can be me, ALL of me ALL the time,is my favorite because I don’t have to hide who I am. I love being able to be blunt, dress how I would like to, and just be me.

How about you? What are some of your favorite things in life???

    Love this Luz. Self-reflecting and gratitude are very important. I tend to be very black and white, especially when I’m going through a bad time.
    My favorite things….
    Having no time constraints or external pressures. Being calm and open and accepting of all. Letting life wash over me with confidence. Watching Willow sleep and having wonderful beautiful calm and happy days with her. Watching her walk and laugh and talk. When she hugs me and wakes me up in the morning with a kiss. Drawing, even though I barely get to- it almost makes it better when I do have the time for it. Listening to music. Walking in the warmth when its breezy. Rain. Biking. Learning and being in school. Writing. Reading. Talking to people and relating to others. Giving people hope. Holding Willow’s hand. Being with my brother. Putting down the window in the car, feeling the wind, and closing my eyes.

    My favorite things…

    I love Sunday afternoons, Knowing that the week is about to start, I take the time and relax. Most of the time it’s watching lifetime or watching football.
    I love going to football games and being with a crowd of people I don’t know, but cheering for the same thing. On of my favorite things is listening to people sing, and signing my self. I love music, it’s like a second laungauage to me. My favorite things are walks on the beach with the breeze hitting me just right. The sunsets that leave a different color in the sky like pink or purple. I love the smell of rain. Connecting with people who have a story to tell. My favorite feeling is the butterflies I get before a date or before a kiss, or when I am about to someone who I have so much love for.
