List two things you remember from yesterday.

1. I remember how I ate way too many Sour Patch Kids in one sitting and I thought to myself: I wish I still lived with my mother sometimes, so she could come grab the bag from me and tell me to Just Stop!

2. I remember how I sat on the park bench, watching the shoppers come out of Big Lots, and wrote down some ideas I had for writing. It felt pretty good, actually.

Things that Get Old (or Don’t!)

List 3 things that you wish would never get old to you.
1. My body
I know – unavoidable, right?
2. Good music
Why is it that, when I fall head over heels for a new song or album, I play it way too often and end up not really caring about it anymore?
3. Passionate, infatuated love
In the beginning of a relationship, everything is in a frenzy. You’re literally lovesick, obsessed, and can’t think of or see anything else around you. Your new lover can do no wrong. Then, after a while, your obsession may turn into a more mature love. I’ve heard it referred to to as “getting comfortable.” Whenever I get to that stage (as I have too many times), I feel loss.

List three sensations that give you delight every morning.

My PUKKA list is:

1. the first sip of coffee. yummmmm…

2. after a shower, drying my face off with a towel

3. seeing my boyfriend come out of our room in the morning, bleary-eyed and adorable (he gets up later than I do, so I have plenty of time to wake up and am alert enough to see how much of a sleep funk he’s in!)


When I look back over this list, I realize that I use three of my senses every morning to enjoy my world: taste, touch, and sight.

What about you? What’s on your PUKKA list?



Natural Phenomenons

List THREE Natural Phenomenons you often overlook, but appreciate.

This is your PUKKA list prompt for the day! I’d be so grateful if you left your own unique PUKKA list in the comments!

My PUKKA list for this prompt is:

  1. The fact that my body can grow another human being inside of it.
  2. That when the sun is beating down on all the plants and trees, there are a millions of photosynthetic processes in that moment.
  3. That when I sleep, the whole world isn’t sleeping. The other side of the Earth is just waking up.
There it is! Creating this list left me with a state of awe. Such a better state of being than shame or guilt!
Enjoy the day and take care!
