16 Things That Really Matter
  1. Clean breath.
  2. Sound digestion.
  3. Good quality sleep.
  4. A daily connection with nature—even  watering your plants or taking a walk in the park count!
  5. Being able to keep your promises.
  6. A dream to aspire to.
  7. A hobby or leisure activity that soothes and ignites your soul.
  8. A real friend: someone you can really talk to, cry before and laugh with.
  9. The comfort of a meal or movie shared with family.
  10. The luxury of a place of your own—even if it is a cosy little nook in a tiny home.
  11. The joy of coming  back to a home that invites you to relax.
  12. Celebrating  the small victories and joys of life rather than waiting for big dollops of good news.
  13. Being able to see the silver lining.
  14. Being able to listen before you judge.
  15. Waking up with something more than just routine work  to look forward to.
  16. Going to bed knowing that you made someone’s day a little happier today.
