Found me a new writing prompt site -- mindbump.com. Here's what today's venture turned up:
Hearing Will laugh
Finding a $20 bill that I didn't know I had
Seeing a rainbow
Walking out of Target having spent far less than I usually do
Thinking about someone, hearing the phone ring and having that person be on the other line
Chocolate covered pretzels
To be understood
A night sky full of stars
Singing along loudly to my favorite song at a stop light, windows down -- and not giving a damn what the people in the cars next to me think
That endorphin rush you get right after a great workout session
Spontaneous dance parties
Happy crying at the end of a great movie
A perfectly mixed cocktail, a perfectly baked potato (slightly salty, crisp skin, tender inside), a perfectly cooked fillet (rare, baby, rare)
A recalled memory that makes me laugh out loud just at the thought of it
An unexpected gift
The moment in September when the light in the morning sky looks just a little different, signaling the approach of fall
The first kickoff of the first game of football season
Discovering a great movie on the telly -- and having time to watch it from start to finish
A spontaneous hug
Singing this song with Will -- it's one of his favorites.
And it sums up things rather serendipitously for me as well...
For happiness is anyone and anything at all
That's loved by you.
Now it's your turn: what are the little things that make you happy?
