Life Is Amazing

Life Is Amazing

Today I have a beautiful guest post from my friend Renee Avard about how amazing our lives really are. I’ve read through this list several times and I know I’ll return to it again and again – each item is a great reminder of all the treasures available around us every day. After you’ve finished reading, go and visit Renee on her site at Catch a Falling Star - she’s pretty amazing too!

Life is amazing:

  • Spending time in bookstores
  • The sky – day or night
  • That “thirst is finally quenched” feeling
  • Days where everything you needed done, gets done
  • Having the money to get the peach smoothie
  • Holding and charging crystals







  • Refreshing juices – peach and watermelon, namely
  • Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches
  • Being asked to use your skills there, through that venue
  • Seeing the starlight through your bedroom window
  • Hearing thunder and rain on a night in and under blankets
  • Recognizing that good things happen more than not
  • Knowledge that the sun will be there every morning
  • And the moon will be there every night







  • Total trust in consistent behavior
  • The overwhelming feeling when tears of joy happen
  • The emotion when the weight finally drops off
  • Freedom and enlightenment
  • Emotional releases in the form of tears and anger
  • Regaining trust and a handle on the situation
  • Realizing what is said is said at the right time and place and it holds weight
  • The little party I have when that poem, post or article is complete
  • Sometimes music in the car and sometimes silence
  • Holding others to the level of comfort needed based on the way the cat acts
  • Smiling due to no known reason







  • Feeling comfort when needed the most
  • Running into old friends or meeting new people that have many common interests
  • Those lyrics, that quote, those words – perfectly describing the current situation
  • Confident words and thoughts after years of uncertainty
  • Coming into awareness in a variety of ways in life
  • Trusting that life knows 
  • Finishing that project – finally
  • Receiving and hearing compliments that validate your feelings
  • Knowing you do not have to be acknowledged, but feeling awesome when you are.

And, finally: Feeling gratitude every day, for every thing, in every way. Remember: All are worth catching – yes, even you!
