A Few Things I Love


There are few things out there that just make me feel alive.  Sometimes I don’t even realize it until the drive home and I’m just buzzing.  Or there are times when right in the midst of things I have to step back and make a mental note to myself to make sure I realize that these are the things that a good life is made up of.

Give me a good conversation any day of the week.  I don’t care if we agree or disagree, but as long as we can have a civil conversation about things that matter and go below the surface, I love it.

Give me a good book I can share with a friend.  We can have conversations about how it should have ended.  We can talk about how cute we think the hero in the book is.  We can talk about how the movie is never going to live up to it.

Give me a chance to be able to introduce two friends to each other and watch them hit it off just like I knew they would.  I love connecting people.

Give me an opportunity to sit and talk and brainstorm with you about how you want to run your business or how you want to improve in an area of your life.  I think this is my love language.

Give me a rainy day away from people and noise and a good book or an Internet connection.  I know it goes against  the rest of them.  I am most definitely an extrovert.  But I also have some introverted tendencies, and those tendencies usually lead me to a day or so a week by myself reading a book or doing some writing or just going to bed early.  Sometimes my recharging comes with good conversation and sometimes it comes with quiet.  I’m learning to embrace both.

Give me something to create.  Tell me what you want, and I”ll go about trying to create it.

Give me Jesus.  Yeah.  I know this one is a bit cheesy.  But the more I’m walking through this season the more I’m learning that He is really all I want or need these days.  My life, His will.  And I am loving the process of walking that out.  It’s most definitely not the easiest thing I’ve ever done, but I do love it.

So what are some things that you are loving on these days?

What just makes your insides buzz with excitement?
