a simple 'thank you' always gets you a bit better. people these days are never grateful for what they recieve. a good attitude is always good 2

As part of the Christmas season..I thought I would try to give back something to the people who have helped me in some way shape or form.
-I made a Holiday mix cd for a handful of people.
-I called a friend's cell phone, and left a message along the lines of "I hope you and your family and your gf have the best for your holidays..etc."
-I sent a Christmas card to a friend who lives in NY and who was in the army. I wished him a Merry Christmas and said I'm glad he can be with his family for the holidays.

Other than that....the small things do mean the world to me.
- When college professors, or anyone for that matter, teach me something awesome.
- Going to lunch/supper with my boyfriend.
- Meeting someone who, in the end, makes you grow in some way.
- Fresh brewed cappuccino every morning.
- Being wrapped up in music and emotions.
- Knowing someone cares about you when you're at your worst.
- Not just that comfy t-shirt, but flannel comfy pants too!
- Lighting my favorite scented candle
- Making someone smile
- Being part of something beautiful; music, animal rights, what have you.
- Connecting with people on different levels
- Falling snow
- Waking up in the morning all comfy in bed
- When things are a suprise and work out in a good way.
-This post, thank you.

Which is why I am majoring in Human Services in college. I want to give back to humanity.

that feeling you get when you know it's chips for tea
a big smile
a good conversation with someone who listens
being happy with you outfit (sounds shallow but it makes a difference)
good old immature fun
unexpected money you find lying around
people respecting you and being nice
a compliment
people who are pleased to see you
lie ins
something you thought was hard turns out to be easy
a warm fire

-reading stuff you wrote in the past (and remembering the way you used to feel)
-making funny "movies" with you and your friends (and then watch them together)
-knowing you just did something good
-i sometimes have this feeling and it's hard to explain it- i feel so angry and i go take a bath (you know with bubbles and everything) and suddenly i forget about everything and all my anger makes me feel empty on the inside and i kinda float like there's nothing that moments i don't care...i don't suffer...i forget and forgive
-preparing dinner or breakfast for someone else
-getting a "thank you" (like you guys already said)
-giving presents and making surprises
My rims never spin, to the contrary
You'll find that they're quite stationary.
