What Do You LOVE To Do?

It's so easy to get caught up in the "have to do's" -
the mental check list that begins to dance in my head
before my feet even hit the floor in the morning.

I've spent a lot of time in the past thinking about the things that I could be doing,
but slowly, I'm beginning to believe that maybe my purpose in life
is to do the things that I am already doing -
the things that I always find time to do, even on my busiest days.

These are those things:
1. I love to write.
2. I love to cook dinner and experiment with new recipes.
3. I love to enjoy a hot cup of tea in complete silence.
4. I love to create jewelry and art.
5. I love to network and 'meet' interesting bloggers in different parts of the world.
6. I love to clean my kitchen. (I'm weird, don't judge.)
7. I love to take photographs.
8. I love to take walks with my dog.
9. I love to laugh with my husband.
10. I love to end my nights with a quick call to my little brother to say "I love you."
I'm pretty 'okay' with who I am and where I am right now.
Too many people live their entire lives and never get the chance to say that,
or to ever get the chance to experience doing what they love each day.
So maybe I'm not meant to be a dancer on Broadway.
Not everyone is meant to be an astronaut when they grow up, ya know?
What about you? What do you LOVE to do?



  1. What a great post Kym - I am so proud to say that I can say the same...
    I am also pretty okay with where I am at right now.

    And I am so glad for the blogging world and "meeting" sweet girls like you!
    We need to chat more.

  2. I am so loving this post! And... I'm right there with ya on the loving to clean my kitchen. It's ... relaxing. And pine sol very well be one of my favorite scents. Lol

    Have a wonderful week, Kym!

  3. I think I do a lot of the things I want to do, but sometimes, I find myself going to bed thinking, "I really didn't do anything fun or for myself today." Those days are rare and sometimes I just can't help it with work. I try to balance the things I need and want to do, most of the time that works out! I am glad you are as happy and okay with the way you lead your life right now. It makes the things we "have to do" a lot more bearable!

  4. I love baking, cooking, being at the races and curling up with a good book. :) I hope you have an amazing weekend!

  5. I love reading this post! wow. seriously. love it. I love a hot cup of tea, writing and laughing with my hubs as well! So glad I found your blog tonight and happy to be a new follower here!


  6. I love your love to do list. ;) A few of those are the same as mine... like laughing with the hubs, going for walks with my dogs... I find that my list is continually evolving. Really we all should spend more time doing the things that make us happy, right!

  7. I love your list. I love reading and having a cup of hot tea in silence as well. Have a great week!

  8. Such a beautiful post :) I love to make lists... haha!

  9. New follower here. I love spending time with my kids and helping them learn. Also, I love to dance. At 34, its hard to just walk into a dance class and not have 20 years on the oldest person in the class. So, at home, we put on the music and I dance like no one is watching...except they are!!

  10. Your list is awesome!
    -I love to travel!! It's my favorite thing!
    -I love to drive alone (not 100% of the time, but it's great thinking time and I can talk out-loud to myself!)
    - I love old Cemetery's. the architecture is amazing!
    - I love children's and Science Museums! So fun!
    - I love ALL time moments I get with my boyfriend (we live apart)

    Thanks for sharing!

  11. I LOVE to cook new foods
    I love my daughters and my family

  12. love having coffee with friends :)

  13. I love love love this!
    I haven't thought about this before, but yes, I do things I love every day without even thinking about it.

    I take pictures, I kiss my dog, I spend time with my family, I worship the Lord...the list goes on and on! Thanks for this post. It makes my heart happy. :)
