Live the Life You've Imagined
"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined."-- Henry David Thoreau
As a writer, I daydream. A lot. I dream about my characters and how they respond to the trials I give them. I dream of fun new things for them to try and adventures they can overcome. But sometimes, I forget to live. Forget to step away from the computer and splash around in the world.
How do you remember to live?
Kimberly Conway kindly awarded me the Happy Award. She has a fun contest going on at her blog and the prizes include jewelry so check it out!
I'm supposed to list 10 things that make me happy.
1. Blogging friends (top of the list)
2 My hilarious husband and witty kids
3. Friends (who've seen me through highs and lows)
4. Good books (and the smell of them)
5. The ocean
7. Warm cheeks
9. Josh Groban's voice
10. Children laughing
I'm going to pass this award on to:
Lynnette at Chatterbox Chitchat
Stephanie at The Writer's Cocoon
Jennifer at Me, My Muse and I
Diane at Need More Words
Heather at Notes from Lapland
**As always, don't feel obligated to take awards if you prefer not to. Just consider it a nod in your direction.
