Episode 69: A Space For You to Simply Exist


Tacos straight from the taco truck, being inspired by the strength of other people, nicknames and the grace and beauty of Dolly Parton -- these Happiness Spells are extremely happy, promise.

New glasses that look really good on you.

Hundreds of koi fish in a pond, just blurs of orange, white and black.

When they tell you that they were just thinking about you.

Finally getting to the front of a very long line.

A hot water bottle under the covers, on a very cold night.

The people who still love you no matter how badly you mess up.

Hearing the birds calling to one another early in the morning.

Tacos straight from the taco truck.

Freshly painted rooms.

Climbing up lifeguard towers to watch the sunset.

A brand new toothbrush and brand new toothpaste.

Watching everyone else go skiing, while you stay safe and warm in the lodge by the fireplace.

How inspiring other people can be, the things they’ve lived through, what they’ve accomplished.

Hearing the nickname your friends all call you.

Seeing a double rainbow in the sky just after it rains.

Uninterrupted reading time.

Every single thing about Dolly Parton.

Exploring an old abandoned ruin with a few friends.

Finding a moment of stillness, a moment where nothing is required of you, a space for you to simply exist.
