Joy Triggers

About a month ago, a friend posted this article about joy triggers on her blog. It is one of my favorite things ever. Maybe even an idea to live by. "It makes sense that human beings can't be "on" all the time, that a little bit of pleasure now and then helps you do the harder things in your life." Something I've learned is that having little things to look forward to, and small things to be grateful for makes even the worst days entirely bearable.
So, here's my joy trigger list:

  • Nick at night playing hours and hours of Friends
  • The people at Starbucks who know my name
  • Deep conditioning my hair with fancy deep conditioner
  • My Sundance Catalog rings
  • Colored G2 pens to write with in my journal
  • Nicholas Kristof's blog and articles
  • Window shopping at Anthropologie
  • Satellite radio channel 36
  • Dior mascara
  • Penn Law sweatshirt
  • Favorite chapters in favorite books
  • 5 minute $5 pedicures
  • Mumford and Sons
  • Colbert Report on Hulu
