Okay there's my rapid fire, 60 second, first come to my brain favorites!  Felt pretty good doing that actually!  I am feeling spread a little thin these days in the sense of time (or lack there of).  So I decided the best way to simply start writing and help get the creative juices flowing was to do this quick list.  I also needed a pick me up on the happy front so turns out, listing my favorite things really did boost my mood!  Especially when I started thinking about my dog jumping into swimming pools and then I got really excited thinking about visiting my mom!  Life can be tough, the world is intense and it's so easy to let everything get us down.  I'm definitely a dweller at times.  But it's important to try our best to keep our heads up, put one foot in front of the other and spread positive and creative love.  If you're feeling down or stuck creatively, jot down a list of your favorite things in 60 seconds.  Do it!  Do it now!  Feel better?  Even just 10% better is an improvement.  Celebrate the little things as much as you can!  And who knows, maybe this list will come in handy if you're ever having a gloomy day.

What are a few of your favorite things?  I'd love to see your lists!
