All that I’m after is a life full of laughter

30 Jul
  • Learning that people are real. Sometimes I think that my friends are invincible and perfect, with no regrets or flaws. It’s really good to dispel that illusion and in the end become closer to people because I’ve removed that bar of jealousy.
  • Heartfelt talks with people I love. Hearing audibly that people care for me, to reinforce what I know and reassure me.
  • Support. 1. Friends that back me up and understand me. 2. Friends that tell me the truth when I run to them in tears and frustration.
  • Friends that pray for me. Both on their on and with me.
  • Friends that sometimes know my heart better than I do.
  • Learning to live life to the fullest and make the most of every moment. Learning to create memories and not wait for them to happen.
  • Reunions. With family I haven’t seen in years and with God, whom I’ve neglected.
  • Joy. Peace of mind. Being positive and enjoying life.
  • Vacations. It is really good to get away from home, see old loves and make new friends.
  • Disposable income. I really appreciate that my parents have taught me about finance and managing my money so that I have enough money to spare to have fun. As often as I sometimes worry about how much and how frequently I spend, I know that I am in control of my finances.
  • Communication. I’m not the best at it, but I am always improving.
  • Gym membership. Trial gym memberships. Being able to be active and exercise even while I’m away. Keeping my sanity in tact.
  • Escaping DC during one of the hottest weeks of the year.
  • Truth and honesty. Two things to live by.
  • Fancy dinners. I appreciate that I can afford and experience them. While I may not appreciate it fully, I am able to say that I have been to some of the finest restaurants in the country.
