There are certain smells, feelings, and things that make this life of mine completely awesome. Little things that would mean nothing to anyone else, but to me they are simply the best. Everyone has their own “bests” and part of finding happiness is to know your happy places and seek them out whenever possible. This is key when life gets a little challenging and you need to pick yourself up. Yes, it isn’t always that easy and once in awhile everyone needs a good mad to clean their head. But if you know your “bests” then you have the power to turn your day around. Make sense? For example, here are some of my “bests”:
Best Outfit– worn jeans, thrifted tee shirt, college sweatshirt, flip flops from Old Navy
Best Song– “Love Shack” by The B-52’s
Best Smell– freshly bathed babies
Best Sound– my little girls singing with all their hearts
Best Feeling– crawling into bed after a very long day and just taking a breath
Best Taste– ice cold watermelon on a hot summer day
Best Place– the beach right before a storm rolls in
Best Pick-Me-Up– new socks
Best Time of Day– late at night when everyone is asleep and the house is still
Best Stress Reliever– swearing in Spanish, screaming in the car, dancing, cooking…. many things!
So, if you are feeling a little down or stressed, think about your best… use one if you need to.
Seriously, how can anyone feel pissed when dancing around to Love Shack?! =)
