Feeling Twinkly


Daily Prompt:  Twinkle


I love this quote from Roald Dahl – “It’s impossible to make your eyes twinkle if you aren’t feeling twinkly yourself.”  It’s a reminder to not only love yourself and focus on the meaningful and nourishing things in one’s life – the road to “twinkly” – but to also recognize that beauty comes from within.  Some of things that make me “twinkly” include:

  1.  Early morning hike in the forest
  2.  Getting lost in a book that is impossible to put down
  3.  The smell of lavender
  4.  The twinkle in my daughter’s eyes when she smiles
  5.  Loyalty and confidence of close friends
  6.  Figs and Blue Cheese
  7.  Wild mushrooms, Chanterelles, picked on my early morning hike in the forest
  8.  Conquering fear or hardship and the transformation that brings
  9.  Making a point of learning or trying something new
  10.  Music everywhere I go

What makes you twinkly?

  1. I don’t know if it’d make me twinkle, but I definitely want to try picking wild mushrooms on a hike. I’m too worried about killing myself. I’m not gonna learn scavenging from a YouTube video, tell you that much. Your list inspires me to try the things on it I haven’t yet.
