Good Stuff

In no particular order - good stuff that I am grateful for . . .
  • Bright colors - imagine the world in shades of gray
  • Being happy where I am at this moment in time
  • The occasional gloomy weather day that pairs perfectly with a hot drink
  • When a wave crests before it spills over the top and waters crashes down the face
  • Finishing a really hard workout and knowing you put everything into it
  • Flying home on my bike down a hill without pedaling
  • Progress
  • Chocolate milk after a very long, sweaty run

Bright colors reminded me of going to the old East Germany in 1989 when the Berlin wall first came down and the communists allowed Westerners in.
Driving from West to East was like being in a full color IMAX movie and when you crossed the border you were back in the 40s in a black and white movie... that dramatic.
GO COLORS!!!

All very good stuff indeed! Especially the chocolate milk. Sometimes towards the end of hard workouts all I can think about is chocolate milke! :)

Absolutely! Love the list... the wave-crashing thing is pretty neat. I love running along PCH and seeing the surfers watch the waves from the shoreline, planning and strategizing. Waves crashing is also awesome :)

I'd say awesome stuff! It is really the little things that bring joy, not the biggies!

occasional gloomy days with warm drinks - yum

chocolate milk - yum

progress - priceless

Funny, I started my own list at work today of good things -- I've needed some good stuff in my life to balance out the rough stuff. That you did the same today makes me smile :)
