Getting lost in a good book.

Spending time with family and friends.

Appreciating good music and good art.

Creating something worthwhile.

Noticing simple kindnesses and random acts of beauty.

(Thanks for asking.)

Reading
Getting face time in with friends
Laughing
A good night's sleep
General conference
Talking about things of the Spirit
Prayer
Exercise
Being outside

(And I can't believe how many of these I don't do on even a sporadic basis. What a reality check!)

Baking.

Baking for other people. You know.

Writing something that makes me laugh. I love when I make myself laugh.

Making something really cool by myself. Like marzipan fruits, or some art project, it's like I go zen. I lose myself in the creation of something, all the cares kind of slide away while I work.

Listening to NPR. I am a voracious learner. I need to learn something new all the time. I want to think.

Having a really great conversation. It just zings when you're talking with someone and the sparks fly, connecting at every level.

Lovin' my babies.

Reading. It can be something challenging like a Boyd K. Packer talk I just read, or light hearted, I love to read. Another chance to learn, I guess.

Time by myself in silence. I need it.

going to work at a job i love where people pay me to make them feel good about themselves. who knew two hands could do so much?

going to the beach.

reading although i don't do that nearly enough unless you count massage books to research conditions.

talking to my sister nearly everyday on the phone. she is so wise and such a blessing in my life.

Metta has known my sister Lindsay, and myself since birth. Metta has even lived with our family a couple of times. So, we do consider her a sister, but she is not an actual sister. Do you know her?
