10 Best Things in Life

I’m shoulder-deep in a depressive episode so this post is coming at a good time. Focusing on things I love and am grateful for always makes me smile. So, on with it! Here’s a list of my Top 10 Best Things in Life!

1. Pets

I adopted a sweet little kitty in February, and she’s already made my life so much better. She’s a gorgeous black & grey tabby named Parker. Her plump belly and little chirps and purrs make life bearable.

2. Tea

Ah, leaf water—especially of the black variety—is one of the greatest pleasures of life. I have an entire 2 cupboards dedicated to tea and teacups. (BUT I NEED MORE *crazy eyes*) I love tea like some people love their coffee.

3. Friends

Whilst it’s buckets of sadness that my dearest compadres live states away from me, and I only see them in person every couple of years, life would be hell without speaking to them daily.

4. Marvel Cinematic Universe

Okay. This may seem a little silly to some, but I’ve made some of the best friends of my life via this fandom. Also, this world—and Marvel in general—have gotten me through some really, really tough times.

5. Autumn

Pumpkins. Leaves. Crisp air. Halloween. Thanksgiving. Hoodies. Scarves. Hygge time beginning. Autumn is the best season there is. Hands down. I won’t listen to a word of difference on the subject. Good. I’m glad we’ve gotten that squared away.

6. Traveling

I’ve only traveled around the domestic US so far, but the wanderlust is strong. Some of my favorite visits are Phoenix/Sedona, NYC, and Washington DC. I hope to make the trek across the Atlantic within the next few years. I want to see Ireland, England, Scotland, Greece, Italy, France, and Sweden most of all!

7. Books

Oh, come on, like this list wouldn’t include this wonderful bundles of dead trees? They’ve been my solace since I was a child. ‘Tis a love that shall never die!

8. Rainy Days / Storms

These get a lot of hate, but I love the way the world seems to quieten and calm down when the sky is grey. There’s a peaceful lethargy to things. I light candles and sip tea, perhaps reading a book if possible. My whole life I’ve gotten this happy, energetic and yet soothing buzz when it storms. I love it. So much. #introvert

9. Baking

I’m honestly becoming an introvert cliché at this point. Sorry, not sorry! Baking makes life less stressful and tastes better than alcohol. (Though, give me all the mimosas, please.)

10. Sleep

Does this really need a caption? If I have to explain why sleep is amazing to you, I’m not certain you’re someone I can be friends with.
