10 of my favorite feelings tag

I would like to thank Pooja for nominating me to do this tag! I haven’t done a tag in a while so I’m pretty excited for this one! The rules are pretty easy: Simply list 10 of your favorite feelings.

Fulfilling my goals

This one is pretty broad but it’s one of the best feelings ever. No matter which goal it might be, whether it’s going for a run or figuring out a tricky math concept, it just feels so good to check it off my list.

Cuddling my cat

I did a few posts about losing my old kitty, Pierre, but this November I got a new one. While I still miss Pierre so much, Waffle (my new baby) has come to mean the world to me and I love sitting with him on my lap or holding and petting him.

Producing a poem I genuinely love

It’s hard for me to 100% satisfied with my work, but when I write a poem that I love right away it feels so good! Also, if I am writing a fictional story, being satisfied with parts of it also feels great!

Imagining the future

I know my future probably won’t be all butterflies and glitter but I still enjoy thinking, planning for and imagining the future. Sometimes it’s nice to get lost in a story where you’re the main character and you can control the story.

Reading a good book

Pooja did a similar one and I’ve got to agree. There is nothing better than falling into a good book. I love being so enthralled that I will happily sit for hours reading. I have been busier than I have been in the past this years, but I still make time for books.

Going on walks/runs

Honestly, is there anything better than going on a walk. Probably not. Runs come in close second, they’re harder but definitely worth it. But I really love taking walks, especially with friends or siblings along.

Cleaning

Lol, it sounds silly but I honestly really love the feeling of taking my room and turning it from a mess to a neat place. I used to be sort of a slob but I’ve definitely mended my ways. Plus, I’ve discovered I am sort of a minimalist and I love decluttering haha.

Traveling

Sort of broad also but I LOVE traveling. Even if it just a week-long trip, it is still amazing. All the sitting can get irritating but when one gets to the destination it’s so worth it (and a lot of the times you experience some amazing things on the way there!)

Watching a good show

So, I’m not much of a movie/tv show person. Personally, I find mistakes, inconsistencies, and bad acting in movies very easily and if the plot is stupid I will just not enjoy myself. Plus, it’s really easy for me to tell when something is CGI and I hate it. TV shows are the same. BUT when I find one that I do like, it’s really fun to get into it. For example, Downton Abbey is one show I really enjoyed watching. The acting, set, costumes, script, stories, it’s all so good. It’s not my #1 favorite show, but it is one of the top 3!

Learning things I’m interested in

I’m a total Ravenclaw (well, also Slytherin a bit) but mainly Ravenclaw, so I love learning about things that interest me! Yes, certain subjects in school bore me, but the ones that don’t are just a joy to learn about and I also like learning on my own, usually by reading non fiction books. Some subjects I really love are alternative history narratives, anything about ancient history, a lot about science, and sometimes even politics!

So this is the end! I hope you enjoyed this tag.

I tag anyone who is interested in doing this to give it a go! Seriously, don’t be shy, go ahead and make your own post. (I would tag individual people but I don’t really have the time at the moment.)

Thanks for reading ❤

Reservoir of inspiration

water

Where does inspiration come from?
Is there reservoir within each of us
full of that fleeting feeling
when everything is right and
words and art flow from our fingers?
If that is true, there are those of us
whose lakes are barren and dry,
cruelty having drained them
of everything good that comes
with being a living, breathing human being.
But then I look around and see
those who are the exact opposite.
Their souls overflow, love and kindness,
like a crystalline, sparkling waterfall,
and everything they touch
is turned golden and beautiful.
But most people are somewhere
in the middle. Flashes come and go,
of true beauty and terrible evil,
mixing together to form an average person,
reservoir not too full and neither entirely empty.
