Kim is pretty much brilliant.
This is not news.
Recently she posted 10 of her favorite things and ways she is working to incorporate those into her daily life. You can read all about it here. I mean, seriously, how smart is she?
Pretty much a genius.
Inspired by her sagacity, I decided to make a Top Ten list of my own. I tried to be realistic. I could have listed "Trips to NYC" or "Long Vacations," "Shopping Sprees" or "Hummingbird Cake." But I really wanted to focus on the simple pleasures in life. The tangible things that bring my enjoyment.
You know what? It's hard. And amazingly, my listed ended up very similar to hers. In fact, with the exception of candles, she listed most of MY favorite things. (I knew I liked her) Either we are destined to be friends, we have very generic "girl" favorites (but hummus, really? who else puts hummus on the Top Ten list?) or I'm completely devoid of imagination this week and I just had the same list because I read hers recently.
We'll go with Option 1.
That Pink Girl's (amended) Top Ten Faves
2. My cats
4. Cleaning House
6. Dark chocolate
So I'm gonna work to incorporate my faves into my daily living. Really focus on enjoying my days, filling them with the things I love.
So I live with Hubs. But I don't spend nearly as much time with him as I'd like. I'm gonna work on guarding our time together and not wasting it away with television. (even though that's one of HIS favorite things) Like last night, we did the 30 Day Shred together and then spent some quality time playing Wii. Let's Dance. Have you played that? You must.
I love my cats. But one of my cats is quite the loner. I need to seek her out more often. Give her the attention she deserves. It makes us both happy.
I'm already doing okay with running, ha! Same with the dark chocolate. Not many considering cleaning house a fave, but hey, it's my list.
I can make time to go to bed earlier. I know my body and mind will appreciate the extra sleep. And I get can all loosey goosey and sleepy reading a magazine in the bath before hand!
Lastly, I'm going to do a better job of letter writing. Of remembering those who are important to me. Who doesn't love a letter? Not an e-mail, not a message on your wall, but a honest to goodness letter. I can't wait to get started!
I'll leave you with this pic of Perry. Hubs sent this to me while in Florida. He's trying to catch a bug, but it looks like he is looking for me, right? Ha!
