Thinking about play..or fun...actually. I once read that if you want to break the habit of obsessing over someone that you need to STOP. Consciously replace the thought of this person with another feel-good thought or activity. To strive to do this at least 10 times a day for a couple days and see if it helps break a spiral of negativity. (and no..I'm not saying don't deal with real feelings..just how to stop obsessive thinking) So I started wondering what feel-good thought or activities people have? I created a very short list for myself: pizza!!! popsicles a day in the pool, river or a water-park losing myself in a good book spending a rainy day in an art gallery walking out of a movie theatre into a bright sunny parking lot the smell of fresh cut grass the smell of clean laundry listening to children laugh sitting on a porch/deck and watching the sun rise with a nice cup of coffee (or hot tea) the beach. Anytime. The beach. dissolving into a pile of giggles and tears with good friends. Okay. How about the rest of you guys. Would love to see what others truly enjoy.
