“The sound of it snowing. I laid on the ground, in the snow at night in the Alaskan wilderness, in December, it’s so peaceful ❄️”
“Even if it’s only for a short period of time: full financial independence, while being single. You can pay your own bills, you have your own place, and you have full freedom over your free time. Whether it’s staying in and binge watching Netflix, or going out and sitting amongst strangers. Your time is your own. No kids. No spouse or significant other. I find this is when you really get to know and understand yourself.”
“Reading a book so good you can’t fall asleep without reading a new chapter, and to feel slightly sad when you finish it.”
“I have two. One is seeing a starry night sky, no clouds, no light pollution, just a beautiful night sky. Or better yet, the northern lights. Second is seeing the view from a mountain peak. People always talk about how ugly the world is, but I think these two things really remind you of how beautiful earth is too.”
“Being in love with someone who loves you back.”
“Seeing an ocean in person, from a beach.”
“The energy of a concert.
Tens of thousands of people excited, vibing in unison and just so fuc*ing happy to be alive.
I’ve been to a couple of concert just to experience that vibe.”
“Whale watching from a boat. Whales are amazing.”
“A hug, simple but important.”
“- Overcoming a strong fear
– Standing up for yourself”
“Witnessing a total solar eclipse
Totally life changing. Even having a full understanding of what is happening, I totally get how people over the millennia would find this to be an omen from the gods.”
“Working a minimum or entry level job as a first job especially when young.
It really makes you appreciate money and interactions with people because it sucked and you got so little of anything even less some respect.
Hell you even get to treat the people that work those jobs nicer because you were them once.”
“Another culture. And I don’t mean as a tourist where you have all the comforts of home. To fully absorb and immerse yourself in the lives of that culture. To eat their foods, drink their drinks, and do as they do.”
“Contentment and security. Not necessarily full happiness, but satisfaction in your own life, and safety within it.
Something that a great many of us don’t actually have.”
“A good night’s sleep.”
“For straight men:
Going to a gay bar.
You realise very quickly how women feel from your playful flirting. Only difference is, they can’t just leave the bar.”
“Being in a poor part of a third world country. We have all seen poverty on TV, but it is a very different thing when you are standing in the middle of it. You then realise how lucky you are.”
“That thing some people do, of waking up and be exited for the day to come, that sounds nice.”
“Being well and absolutely disconnected. No phones, no GPS. I last had that experience in the early 90s. Being somewhere with someone you trust and the two of you are the only people who know where you are and what you are doing.”
“Everyone should experience the joys of traveling to a foreign land at least once in their lifetime, even if it’s just to realize how much they love their own toilet. Imagine discovering new cultures, cuisines, and the thrill of trying to communicate with locals using just charades and a phrasebook. Trust me, it’s a life-changing experience that’ll give you a new appreciation for your home and a killer accent to boot.”
