50 Things You Love to Do

Inspired by Kylie and her amazingly free online-class “Welcoming the Good,” I decided to post my contribution to one of last week’s assignments. Based on this post, we produced lists of our own.

50 things, big and small, life-changing and everyday, profound and seemingly-inconsequential. Anything goes!

I had quite a fun time creating this list of joyful things. The process definitely brought a smile to my face. I hope that reading this list will bring you a similar smile!
