Brown Paper Packages Tied up with Strings.

My sister has always made these lists and books about "things that make you happy", continuously writing things that make her happy, and making others write things that make them happy. I feel I've under appreciated this idea or maybe thought it'd be a bit girly for me to do all the time, but really I'm finding it's so healthy to recognize the things that you find joy and beauty in. You should fill your life with these things, make the time for them in this busy world, and define yourself in this happiness. It's good to count your blessings, God has blessed so many of us so much, we need to live it full and hard. So these are a few of my favorite things:

Current Dominant Joys of All Time - Forgiven Sinnerhood, Husbandness, Job Finding (it'll be joyful to have a good interview in the morning, wish me luck!), Familyhood, Good friendness.

5 Bands that get me amped on life - Muse, Death Cab, Coldplay, Jon Foreman, Watashi Wa/Eager Seas. These are musical and/or lyrical inspirers to me.

Joyful Hobbies right now - Exercise! - Climbing on rocks, Running on trails and streets, Swimming in springs, lakes, pools, Surfing waves, Tennis with wife or strangers, Hockey hopefully soon in the league across my street, Soccer around the house, B-Ball in the driveway of the in laws, Football when around Eric MW, Racquetball with the father in law. Biking with our soon to be bought bikes. Food! Cooking - Salads, Pastas, Tacos, Bean Dips, Nachos, Tofu, Noodles, Crepes with Monica, friends, or by myself, something about creating good taste is fun. Music! - Drumsets, Djembe, Guitars, Didgeridoo, Piano, Singing recently learned songs - Danny's song, Kenny Loggins; Square One, Coldplay; Up and Up, Relient K.

I enjoy connecting with friends near and far. Blogs, Facebook, Texts, Phone. it's good talking to Aaron V. Aaron H. Dustin B. Phil S. Cameron S. Eric MW. Jason F. Amy W. Trina Y. Dad, Mom about hobbies, progress, struggles, plans, future, funny incidents, memories, life...

Boating with the Mattingly's, Night Hikes, Camping, Canoeing, Fireworks in the streets, fires in the wilderness, sleeping outside, Kayaking, Adventure, wearing costumes, eating sweets, eating out, playing Tetris, painting, sidewalk chalk.

Top Silliest People I know that make me laugh: Devin D. Aaron H. Ben F. Eric W. Joe K. Brad E. Anthony H. Scott B. Phil S. Amy W. Ludine P. Zach M. Nick L. Jeff T. Bjorn H. Monica M. - this changes a lot too, many people making me laugh. but just think about these people, if you know them, you know they are hilarious.

I've shared alot, And now I feel good. Now share with me.

This is a good list Yeoster. I did this awhile back on my blog. But I think you're right, I need to do it again.
