a tickle of words to create smiles

Favorites Change

For some reason today, I decided to look at some of my old journals and read through them. I came across a list of favorites (as a nineteen year old). It is amusing to see what I really liked twenty years ago.

Do I have favorite things now? Do I even show favoritism? Honestly, I have to answer yes. In this time of my life, my favorites have expanded to include all things and events that are positive and promote love, peace, and tranquility in the world. My favorite activities are those that create joy. I enjoy being around positive people. Natural environments and all the living things that live in them bring bliss to my heart like seashores and waterfalls, puppies and butterflies, rainbows and summer showers.

I still enjoy drawing and painting. I am surprised I did not mention writing among my past favorites. I have filled several journals and diaries with various meandering thoughts, quotes and even poetry. I suppose if blogging was available back when I was nineteen, I would have had blogged two or three times a day. Exploring my favorites past and present has allowed me to see how I have grown and matured. Looking at my past writing has me exploring old feelings as well, but I will save those discoveries for another day. I would like to invite you to share what were your favorites? How have they changed? Did you make any discoveries by doing this?
