I’ll keep this intro short since this post is all over the place, but a short collection of random things that make me feel alive.
Those shots in movies where the pan over a big city and you see all the lights and cars and people. These are especially good when it’s a rom-com because it makes you just want to move to a big city and fall in love on the train listening to music and drinking some coffee. It just makes me feel kinda small and that I can go anywhere and do anything.
When you’re on an airplane and you’re landing and you sit on the edge of your seat and you get that dropping feeling in your stomach. This one is oddly specific but my sister and I did this when we were younger and still do it to this day and it makes me feel like I’m dying and thriving at the same time.
When it’s sunny out and you get an iced tea and it’s all warm out and the windows are down. This is usually followed by singing old One Direction and wearing cute sunglasses and living your best summer life! It also doesn’t hurt if you’re with your friends and it’s a whole party.
Reminiscing. This one is so generic but it’s something I love to do from time to time. I feel like reminiscing could be viewed as the opposite of feeling alive because you’re in the past instead of the present, BUT I just like to think back to the good times and see how much has changed and how much hasn’t changed. I’m also a big fan of like “a year ago today” and that kind of stuff, I’m slowly turning into a Facebook mom but it’s chill.
Hugging that person you haven’t seen in forever and have missed so much. I recently flew back to Ohio for a hot minute and I got to surprise my cousin who I’m basically best friends with, and hugging her and just seeing her face when she saw that I had surprised was the best part of my trip.
I wrote this on a plane ride and my mom was watching me write this post so sorry if my creativity was censored! (Just kidding, my mom thought I was texting someone in the air and she yelled at me)
