I know I’m going to get downvoted to oblivion for this, but so be it. My faith really helps me. I believe in a loving God, and thinking of His arms surrounding and protecting me really makes me feel a whole lot better.

I like to think that I’m some kind of superhero because I save half dead plants and bring them back to life. Most of the plants that I get are ones you can propagate so I’ve been propagating plants and giving them away. I feel like plants help people feel a little happier sometimes and I am happy to share the wealth

Nothing better in the winter than a hot bath with a cup of hot chocolate and a book. Then after the bath I curl up with a fire going, with the hot chocolate, a good scary book, warm blanket and socks, and a cat or two curled up sleeping on me or near me. I feel better when my kids are home asleep in the their rooms instead of at their dads. I like to have them near. Unfortunately my 23 year old daughter lives an hour and a half away and my 19 year old son and his baby live about an hour away. At least my two youngest are still with me.

- Owl City music
- Blankets
- Baking for people I love- I love baking and I love making people happy!
- My favorite books. Harry Potter, anything by Kate DiCamillo, The Underneath by Kathi Appelt, Watership Down by Richard Adams, The Princess Bride, etc. Honestly I could go on for ages. My favorite escapes bring me true joy.
- My faith. It truly makes me a better person and adds so much assurance and peace to my life. Pascal's wager- Either God exists or he doesn't, so since there is everything to be gained by believing in God and nothing to lose, why not believe?
- A good cup of tea. Substitute for coffee if that suits your fancy.
- My friends. I'm so blessed to have amazing and supportive people in my life that I can laugh with, cry with, and brave life with.
- My sisters. I love my family so much. They annoy the absolute crap out of me sometimes but my relationship with my sisters is so special and I wouldn't trade it for anything.
- Sewing/ crafting. I love creating things. It brings me peace to get lost in an activity and do something well.
- My glow in the dark stars on my ceiling. Those beautiful pieces of cheap plastic. Gorgeous and peaceful.
- My plants. I have a garden and a cactus named Herman. I highly recommend having another living thing to take care of. Plant or pet, I swear it's so nice.
- Our family's christmas tree. We've never bought an ornament, and our tree has never had theme. Some years my dad just cuts a tree out of the woods. But it tells the story of our family so well. All the ornaments we've been gifted or made as kids, maybe some skinny patches, it's so beautiful to me. I just turn off the lights, turn on the tree, and bask in the glow of decades of memories, nostalgia, and an unconventional beauty just as unique as my family.
- Chocolate. Need I say more?
- Me. Call me vain, but I genuinely love myself and my alone time gives me so much peace and joy.
There's probably so many more things I could list, but I hope all of you can remember that there truly are so many beautiful, happy, peaceful things in the world. I highly suggest just listing all of the things you can think of that bring you peace and make you happy. An attitude of gratitude and general optimism makes things feel a lot better. Will it make everything better? No, there will always be bad things. But there will also always be happy, beautiful, peaceful things. Not all is right with the world, but not all is wrong with it either and we can always focus on the good. Sending love, good wishes, and prayers for all of you.

Other people (I don't even know) are praying for me. I makes my day when sometimes God tells me, "There are people wanting to help you get through school and all this mask crap, you just don't know it."

Honestly, movies. Specifically Marvel movies. I like watching movies for the fun of it, but I also watch movies as a self described movie reviewer. I like watching people grow into better people, and learn to help one another. I also like getting hyped over insane stuff that happens in these movies and shows, like when they introduce a badass new character. I makes me really happy.

Re-watching my favorite shows on Netflix. I know I don't have all the time in the world, but it's nice sticking to the things I like.

Music, my favorite bands are The Sword, Kyuss, Sleep, Clutch, and Greenleaf. Listening to audiobooks and painting miniatures, favorite book to listen to is We Are Legion We Are Bob, which I highly recommend, I enjoy to paint miniatures and I like to draw. What's nice is I can often do two of these activities at the same time, and I enjoy them because they just let me ignore the rest of the world and focus on whatever I'm doing. That's what brings me peace

I like to go outside on top of the monkey bars and look at the tops of the pine trees over my house. I also love skateboarding and looking up at trees. (If i can't go outside then i will browse BP)

Music. I'm a music therapy student. I have observed several sessions involving children, teens, and adults. Seeing them engaged with music and being stimulated emotionally is truly beautiful to witness and mainly why I went into the field. I hope I can do the same for my clients in the future.

My cat. She's such a darling little cuddlebug, and she just seems to know when I'm having a bad day and always comes climbing into bed with me. Her favorite spot to lay is between me and her blanket, with her back against my stomach as she kneads away on the blanket while I give her all the tummy rubs she could possibly want. It brings me such contentment listening to her purr away as she's being cuddled.

Sitting in my living room, fireplace going, cat purring on my lap and listening to records with a nice glass of a good scotch.

Replace cat with dog, and scotch with wine (and chocolate), and that would be a wonderful evening.

People. I believe in people and the fact that they deserve an infinity of second chances so they can fail at things as many times as they want, until they feel satisfied with the outcome.

Thinking of winning the lottery and planning how I would give all the funds away. Starting foundations. Helping people, lots of people.

Playing guitar. Rock and Roll isn't the answer to everything, but the soundtrack to everything cool!

My rescue dog brings me absolute bliss!

She’s not lived a a house before. She was found abandoned with her mum when she was about a month old. She lived in kennels from then until 18 months.

She didn’t know what indoors was. She didn’t know what an indoor floor was. She didn’t know what a carpet was, or a door, or a bed. She was frightened and overwhelmed. She saw her reflection and freaked out.

She had no idea what a lead was. She’d never been on a walk. Grass was frightening.

We just keep letting her know it’s all ok. We don’t force her into anything. If you force a frightened dog into a situation you will cause aggression.

She’s walking nicely on her lead now and is really enjoying exploring. She’s learned how to sit and how to “leave”.

She’s made a best friend in Fred T Cat. They love to curl up together.

There’s more work to do but we’ll get there.

Reading books under my cozy blanket.
Writing a diary for my thoughts. Because when i start writing my negative thoughts, i become more aware of them and let them go more easily. This helped me with my depression.

Seeing a dog with his head out the window when riding in the car. Absolutely my favorite thing to see when commuting.

Drawing with no goal in mind. It just relaxes me. I let my pencil flow with no image in mind. As a matter of a fact, doing this has actually created some of my best art. I advise this to all artists out there. Put away your digital art apps, blenders, fancy pens, all of it. Take a piece of paper and a pencil and let your pencil flow on the page. ≧◇≦ >﹏

My best friend.
We haven't met in a while...almost a year now but we text regularly. Whenever I feel sad or overwhelmed I talk to her for an hour. After a long day at school or general work talking to her about whatever - movies or music helps me relax.
I love her so much! And miss her...

When it's time for bed, my favorite part is curling up next to my boyfriend and lying on his chest and just laying there for a bit.. everything else kind of just melts away and the hard day we both had doesn't seem so hard anymore.. I really feel like I can keep going just with something as simple as that.

Adult paint by numbers, they are all over the place. (Amazon, Micheals Crafts, ect) Aside from the normal things like cuddling with my husband/son/pup/kitty, video games, reading and watching movies. The paint by number is my quiet static place of relax and ease. :D
