What makes you feel alive?

I am back on a recovery path – yes! – And re-reading notes from You are a Badass (what a fun book), so I am thinking this morning about what makes me happy and what makes me feel most alive. As of this moment in time:

  • Running in the woods
  • Swimming in the lake
  • Being immersed in another language and culture, speaking another language, talking with people from another country, living in another country
  • Being held
  • Great sex
  • Being around kids
  • Teaching and having my students get it
  • Stimulating conversations with smart people about the world
  • Playing piano
