a warm cup of hot chocolate.
sleeping in on Saturdays.
a summertime rain.
banana splits on the 4th of July.
capturing the perfect shot.
butterflies on a first date.
knowing who your friends are.
a mother's embrace.
a perfect first kiss.
chocolate cookies out of the oven.
blowing the seeds of a dandelion.
a compliment from a stranger.
snuggling with a childhood teddy bear.
a penny on heads.
your favorite pair of jeans.
laughing until you cry.
talking on the phone until two am.
coloring with crayons.
reading a book you cannot put down.
a child's laughter.
getting a card on your birthday.
the ferris wheel stopping at the top.
dancing until your feet ache.
rolling down a grass covered hill.
the first dip of your toes into a creek.
listening to the ocean in a sea shell.
the smell of a loved one.
catch and release.
a hot shower that steams the mirror up.
an outdoors concert.
getting your hopes up once in a while.
trying even if you will fail.
singing loudly in the car.
a really good hair day.
But the real secret is the one you would never guess...
love yourself, love others, love till it hurts.
And then...love some more.
