And in that moment I swear we were infinite

Seeing the sunrise

Riding roller coasters

Feeling like my heart is so full of love/pride/awe that it will burst

Warm sun on my skin

Breathing deeply

At the end of a class at the gym

Floating in the pool

Being awake and outside when no one else in the neighborhood is

Running in the fields with the dogs

Cloud watching

Loving someone with all of my heart


Sitting under a harvest moon

Laughing for a long time from deep in the pit of my stomach


Those halcyon days and nights with friends that seem to go on forever

Sharing major life experiences

Escaping reality

Being a part of something that's bigger than me

Realizing I'm in the middle of an event or conversation that I will remember for my entire life

Staring at a steady rain

Being on the beach

Meandering through quiet shore towns in the off-season

Walking the track at Relay For Life

Looking at the sunset over the ocean

Strolling with my dogs during the magic hour

Road tripping on deserted roads through unknown towns to the soundtrack of my choosing

After my third drink, when the day or night is still young and I'm anticipating a lot of fun

Reading an amazing, heart squeezing book

Writing without purpose or direction

Saturdays without agendas

Vacation eve

Seeing only open water on a cruise ship

What makes you feel infinite?

Inspired by a quote from The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky


  1. Oh, I love this post! Standing on the beach!!
    Happy Hump Day!

  2. Driving, by myself, on a sunny day with a fantastic song playing and for some reason it usually hits me that, no, my life isn't perfect, but I am genuinely happy.

    When I hear the first dance song from our wedding, no matter where I am or what I am doing.

    Love this by the way!

  3. JMJ! Glad you posted this.When I do not hear from you every morning, I think you have been kidnapped. #WHEW
    Beautiful sentiments. Need to look up halcyon-seems like a lovely word.
    I feel infinite, knowing our spirits are infinite. Recognizing all that is on your blog today as being beautiful and infinite makes your life superb!
    All comes down to gratitude!
    Happier existence! LOVE YOU!

  4. I love that feeling you are talking about--so content and happy and perfect. I have been compiling a list of my own for a blog post about "things that make me happier than you can even imagine." and when you wrote "being the only one in the neighborhood awake" I GOT that feeling. I remembered it. Nice work!

  5. all of those things, yes. and sleeping in and waking up to the sun peeking up!

  6. Aaaaaahhhhhhh! All of that, and more!

  7. I love this post!

    feeling the warmth of a bonfire, watching your team win a game, that first breath of spring air, just to name a few.

  8. Love this post! Standing in the sane with the sunset over the ocean is my favorite.

  9. Ahhhhh — I love this post! So many of these I completely agree with! Happy Wednesday!

  10. Oh yes, so many of these. I love the phrase "heart-squeezing book" and I know that feeling. Also, listening to a piece of music that touches my soul. And along the beach lines, standing on the beach and feeling the sand pull away as the tide goes in and out. I've often thought of trying to put that into some meaningful words.

  11. Everyone one of those!!

    Reading an amazing book cover to cover
    Driving on an open road in my convertible (when I had one)
    Hearing a song on the radio that conveys exactly what you are feeling at that very moment
    Listening to live jazz music
    A good cry

    Love this post! <3

  12. I don't know what it is about you...your posts are long, but I always am drawn in and read every have a quirky yet heartfelt way of expressing yourself in everything your write. This is why I love you! Music, a good cry, top down, sand in my toes, my girls' giggles, seeing the Texas stars at night....those are some of mine. xoxox

  13. Love all of these! Except - the one about seeing endless water while on a cruise ship ... that would make me have a panic attack. Hello tsunami nightmares. But, the rest, yeah, totally heavenly. :)
