1. Waking up tomorrow just for your favorite cup of coffee.

2. Getting through Tuesday so you can make it to that Wednesday concert.

3. Going to bed early so you can spend a little extra time snuggling in your bed with your favorite blanket.

4. Turning down plans to stay at home to read that book you haven’t been able to put down.

5. Starting to buy Christmas presents now just because you see something that would fit someone perfectly and you’re now looking forward to Christmas that much more so you can finally give it to them.

6. Smiling when you see traffic backed up so you can roll your windows down and put on some Bob Marley and be the only one smiling that’s stuck in track singing “don’t worry about a thing, ’cause every little thing is gonna be alright.”

7. Buying tickets to an upcoming concert so for the next 30 days you have something to be excited about.

8. Doing a little online shopping so you come home to a surprise on your doorstep.

9. Buying a bouquet of flowers to put on your desk in your office for yourself.

14. Changing your bed sheets because it will make you feel like a new person.

15. Calling someone on your drive home who you haven’t talked to in a while, just to say hey.

16. Going to the movies so you can get lost in someone else’s life for an hour and a half and forget about yours.

17. Making a Pinterest board of one place you have always wanted to visit and dreaming about the day you’ll be there.
