Love List of Natural Highs

My Love List of Natural Highs

What are your natural highs? What are the things you love to experience that light your spirit and cause an inner giggle? I invite you to make a list of all things you can think of that you cherish. Share them using the comments link at the end and or tell some friends and ask for theirs.

As a way to get you thinking, here is my Love List of natural highs. These are experiences that I love that no drug on earth can replace. Maybe after you read my list you will think of your own. Certainly write them down but better still share you list with someone special and maybe two people will tell two people and so on, and so on….

    This is a great list Peter, and I relate to so many of them (including the tree and mountain climbing!). A few to share with you:
    -driving on a beautiful day with the sunroof open
    -having my kids read to me when they were little
    -the first time you kiss a new love
