I like being around people who make me hungry for life.
I like doing things without knowing how they’ll turn out.
I like tiny interesting choices, because I know they make all the difference.
I like dinner for breakfast.
I like talking to strangers.
I like celebrating every little victory, because I know that’s what makes a win.
I like dancing.
I like it when my blood races.
I like it when people randomly remember completely insignificant things about my life, because I can then put them in the ‘keeper’ file.
I like long dinners, with wine.
I like words, and how putting different ones next to each other creates a rhythm, without there being any need for music.
I like listening to people, and their stories, because it’s the best way I learn.
I like how once you’ve experienced something new, you can never go back.
I like honesty.
I like the seconds, between moments, where the unsaid lingers, because anything could happen.
I like optimism.
I like people who have the courage to be themselves, without any apologies or excuses.
I like being afraid, not all the time, but quite a bit of the time, because then I know I’m doing it right.
I like it when you want catch a wave, and there’s that brief moment where you can either get sucked under or ride it, and all you can taste is salt, and all you can hear is your heart pounding, ba ba bum, over and over in your ears, and then all of a sudden you soar, and it feels like you’re free, and everything slows down, and you look up to see the bright yellow sun, and it’s kind of blinding.
I really like that.
