What makes me feel alive

A couple months ago when I was in Colorado, the first day, we were given a task to write 20 things on a notecard that makes us feel alive. My first thought was, well crap, I don't think I can come up with THAT many things. Right now, all I can focus on is how awkward I feel because I don't know anyone so I'm trying to think of things to say to the person next to me. "Alright, go", I hear from my coordinator.  I look up and everyone starts writing like they can't make their hand move fast enough. and then there's me. staring. at people. I started to think...what makes me feel alive? what does that even mean? And then I just started writing the things that the came to mind that made me feel peaceful, excited, exhilarated, relaxed, warm, and joyful.

These are 20 things that make me feel alive...

  1. Mountains
  2. Alone time with Jesus
  3. Journaling
  4. soothing music & fun music
  5. Beach time (hilton head)
  6. my crazy loving Family
  7. my absolutely incredible crazy sweet friends
  8. Playing with elementary age kids (early ed. major)
  9. being with my sweet boyfriend
  10. a good cry
  11. Coffee
  12. watching any type of movie with popcorn
  13. thunderstorms that last all day
