I had envisioned a poll for this post. But I had too many answers: friends, family, work, exercise, spiritual practice, pets, therapist and of course, shoes. What am I leaving out?

Daydreaming about the future. It reminds me why I do what I do.
Daydreaming… That’s wonderful.
Tonight I went to a talk with Gail Collins, who writes a column for the NY times. What keeps her afloat, she said, were all the amazing people in the U.S. I like that!
Sarcasm, humour – healthy disdain for people who aren’t me or my friends. Also, cake.
I could not live without cake.
Wine, of course….followed by Bourbon.
Reading my old journals.
That’s interesting. In what way does that work for you?
My life affirmations, read each morning when I wake, and each evening before I sleep. It’s training of the brain.
My journals are like friendly reminders of what is really important. They bring me back to who I really am, something that can get easily lost sometimes in this messy world. When I read the old perspectives I had on life, they are like old friends who know me well.
Riding horses! It gets me with animals, exercising, and outside, all in one.
