My Anti-Bucket List

The other day I shared some of my bucket-list items. In creating that list I got to thinking about some things I won’t be doing in this life. After all, what's good for one is not good for all.
My anti-bucket list items are:
  1. Bungee jumping: Sky diving was fun, but this I can definitely do without. 
  2. Run a marathon: I love the idea of running, but I hate actually doing it. I have great respect for runners, especially marathon runners. In fact, I’ve wished many times that I enjoyed running. But I don’t.
  3. Get a tattoo: Not having a tattoo is actually going to be the rage. In the mean time, I’m staying ahead of the curve and investing in stocks in tattoo-removal technology. There are going to be lots of regretful people inked with butterflies. 
  4. Own a cat: Never.
  5. Swim with dolphins: I’m against holding animals in captivity for our enjoyment. So, simply put, this would just make me sad.

10 simple joys

Recently "Chewbacca Mom" reminded the world that life is about the "simple joys". Think about it - more of  life is about the everyday moments than the sexy milestones. Though I've written a lot here about gratitude, this got me reflecting yet again on the simple joys I am thankful for. This is my list right now, though in no way complete.
1. Snuggling under a cozy duvet 2. That first sip of freshly brewed coffee in the morning 3. Hugging my partner tightly 4. Smiling to strangers and getting smiles back 5. Taking in a beautiful skyline view 6. Mastering a new skill that was unknown to me 7. Being awakened by the chirping birds outside my window each morning 8. Watching a scary movie and jumping with fright (this is a guilty pleasure, I'll admit) 9. Grocery shopping with my partner (yes I know, weird but true - we are talking simple!) 10. Camping adventures (s'mores included ;))
What are your simple joys?

What a Twit: Part IV

I am an avid Tweeter and take to sharing my favourite tweets with my blog followers every three or four months. This year started off with a bang and I have more tweets than usual...lots of them funny, some inspirational, and others informative. Enjoy!

@TheLoveStories Never regret something that once made you smile.
@TravelBloggr Dear Twitter spell check, Pancetta is not "pancreas." Just thought you should know. Learn some foodie Italian please.

What a Twit!

Over the past three years that I’ve been on Twitter, I’ve “met” tons of interesting people around the world who are doing cool things, have interesting ideas, are funny and sometimes/often even have similar interests to mine.
Twitter allows you to “favourite” tweets, bookmarking them for easy future reference.  Since many of my closest friends aren’t on Twitter, I wanted to take this opportunity to share some of my favourites - favourites because they are insightful, funny, hopeful or all of the above. Hopefully they make you take pause, laugh, or reflect.
There is a Top 5 (in no particular order), then some of my other faces. Enjoy!
