11 Things I Love About Life and Living

Quote of the day:

We are sun and moon, dear friend; we are sea and land. It is not our purpose to become each other; it is to recognize each other, to learn to see the other and honor him for what he is: each the other's opposite and complement. -Hermann Hesse

These are the eleven things that I love about life.

1. I like certain things the way they are...
2. I like when people stand for something because of their belief system or personal principles.
3. I like raindrops even though umbrellas aren't my thing.
4. I love to see lightening unleashing itself through the skies.
5. I love life
6. I love laughter.
7. I love awkward moments.
8. I like mismatched socks.
9. I like getting lost in a good book.
10. I like staying awake with a thousand thoughts dancing before my eyes.
11. And I love the fact that nothing is permanent and that beauty lies in change.

Peace & Love*

  17. So glad that I've stumbled upon you from you leaving kind words on my blog. I love lists like this, it keeps things in perspective: only the good things. Like you, I love awkward moments (because they are imperfect and there's beauty there I think to the untrained eye), I love laughter, I love life & mismatched socks - I am beginning to love the fact that things are not meant to be permanent and delight in the fact that sometimes there will be change... Beautiful.

  18. Points well made..! I love raindrops..


  19. I love being happy Papi....Happiness is my #1 priority...

  20. Like the list. If you like mismatched socks you could love my mismatched shoes. I had an excellent laugh the other day and it reminded me I need to laugh more often.

  21. Even though life can really suck sometimes, I really like life o, lol.

  24. I like lists
    I like comfortable silence and not feeling pressured to fill it
    I like getting lost, and then found, in a book
    I like holding hands
    I like that somethings are for a season and others for a lifetime
    I like that I am telling my fingers to stop before I turn this to a post on your blog
    I like that my fingers are not listening
    I love WIFI
    I Love people who read
    I love to agree to disagree because that's just another extension on our diverse world and that's ok......

  25. I often have mismatched socks because of my erratic laundry regime. Being passionate about your beliefs is pretty good too.

  26. I love love..
    I love life..

  30. *Giggles* I also love awkward moments... I enjoy seeing the reaction from those awkward moments. I always say that a situation is only as awkward as one makes it... so it's often fun to see how others respond in their moments, too! :o)
