The Best Feelings…

25 Apr

Have you ever thought about the things that feel the best? I’m not talking emotional, I’m talking tactile. The feelings that make you shiver, the feelings that make you sigh, the feelings that make all your muscles relax. I’ve always felt like these feelings are few and far between, but the more I think about it, the more I realize these are everyday pleasures if we just take the time to seek them out and enjoy them. So I thought I’d throw together a little list of the best everyday feelings in the world. Feel free to add your own, and let’s feel a little of the best today.

Waking up naturally on a Saturday morning, remembering you have nothing to do that day, and rolling over to read a book for an hour.

Dancing in the livingroom until you collapse.

Getting butterfly kisses from a child that calls you “Aunt.”

Sliding in between cool, crisp, freshly washed sheets. (Bonus points if you just shaved your legs.)

Getting your hair brushed by someone who loves you.

Finishing a workout where you really pushed yourself and ending with a reeeeeeally good stretch.

Taking a hot shower after said workout and stretch.

Giving an unexpected compliment and seeing the person smile.

Puppy kisses on the nose.

Getting sun-drunk lying on a blanket in the grass on the first sunny day of spring.

That moment when you finish singing, hold your breath, and the audience does, too, before erupting in applause.

Hearing your pulse pound in your ears and feeling your breath whoosh in and out in time with your sneakers on the pavement.

Laughing until your sides hurt and you can’t catch your breath.

Starting and ending my day in the arms of the man who loves me.

What would you add to the list?
