Life gives us so many beautiful moments, and it would be a shame to not appreciate and celebrate them…

Here are some positive moments in my life lately:

-Trying a new cafe and having the best banana bread and dirty chai latte with great company.



-Moving my body in a way that feels GOOD. That included going to the gym, doing yoga at home, and trying a new yoga studio.

-Having a relaxing snow day that included lots of reading, watching Vampire Diaries, drinking hot coffee, and snuggling with my pup.

-Drinking all the hot dirty chai tea lattes. And writing messages on my cups to make myself smile.


-Trying a new delicious Thai restaurant.

-Finishing two books: The Sun and her Flowers by Rupi Kaur and Yoga and the Quest for the True Self  by Steven Cope.

-Listening to new music. Some of my favorite songs lately: This Must be the Place (Naive Melody) by The String Cheese Incident, Television by You Won’t, Ego by Milky Chance, and Lucky Fish by Little India.

-Listening to The Chasing Joy podcast.

-Learning to read Tarot cards.

Now tell me some positives in your life lately. 🙂 Have a wonderful Monday friends!

    New coffeeshops and banana bread are always on my list of happy things.

    We need to write these kinds of posts more often.

    On my positives list? Dan brought home some delicious cheese and chive scones – my favorite – and I have a realllllly good bag of coffee beans in my cupboard right now. Oh, and its supposed to start getting milder this week. Fingers crossed!

    Yes to the chai and the Thai! Some of the best things in life. Exploring new restaurants and coffee shops is something that’s on my radar for this new year.
    Loved Rupi Kaur’s first poetry book so I can’t wait to read the second one too.

    Some of my positives this week include starting the new semester and getting to see my friends again, and catching up on podcasts.
