My Top 10 Favourite Feelings | Expressing Gratitude & Another Huge Announcement!

I want to thank Xandria for coming up with such an original idea for a tag, and to Pooja from lifesfinewhine for nominating me. Pooja is the absolute queen of blogging and I’m honoured to participate in this! I know you nominated me a month or two ago but in came school work to ruin the plans of being productive with this blog. So let’s get on to the tag, despite its delay in being written.

The Rules

List out 10 of your favourite feelings! It’s honestly just that simple!

Heavy rain as I go to sleep

Rain at any time of day has a satisfying sound, but particularly at night with the window slightly ajar. Water in any form brings me a sense of belonging – a cosy, homely feeling – especially the ocean! My dream is to have a house on a seafront, ideally in Scotland.

The satisfaction of writing a lengthy journal entry, and getting everything off my chest

Since chatting with some girls about LOA on a group chat, I have become fully invested in journaling. Lots of people recommend it as the activity to do as you first wake up, but it doesn’t matter the time of day for me. It could be 11pm and I would still feel the same satisfaction! Journaling honestly DOES change your life. And I know you hear people talk about it a lot as the ‘best thing that has ever happened to them’ but they’re not lying. I was in your position once, thinking that I don’t need to journal or not having enough time to journal. Now I do and it’s the best daily habit to implement. 

Completing my to-do list!

I rarely complete an entire to-do list, so when I do it feels so satisfying!

Sitting down on the sofa after a long and tiring walk

Nothing beats this. Sometimes I go for a fast-paced walk, get a *bit* sweaty, and because of how fast I’m walking, I can’t really feel any sensation in my body. But when I return home and I finally stand completely still, I am overcome all exhaustion and usually just flop on to the sofa with a cup of tea. 

Seeing someones face light up when they see me, and vice versa

It’s the specific moment when someone turns from a concentrated frown, to then lift their eyes up and smile at you! It never fails to give me a warm feeling. A smile is like carrying your own sunshine. It does genuinely brighten up people’s day!

A breeze on a hot day

Anywhere in the world this feels good, but by the seaside especially. You could be a hot, sweaty mess then this gentle breeze passes through the trees and you suddenly feel grounded and less bothered by the heat.

Finishing a hardback book

Book lovers can relate! Whenever I finish a hardback, I snap it together so it makes a loud clap. I’m currently reading a hardback, and that’s one of the motivators to get me through it. 

The cat coming to sit on my bed during the night

If you don’t follow my Instagram (you should), you won’t know who Pikachu is. Our family’s gorgeous cat tends to sleep on our beds at night, usually taking her pick between my brother and I. It’s a silent sibling competition, that we never voice aloud. But when Pikachu comes on to my bed at night it’s an unspoken win over my brother hehe. 

Going outside in the early hours of a frosty morning, and inhaling the cool, fresh air

It’s 6am on Monday 22nd November. You have just woken up to a dark sky, and you hear the cat meowing downstairs. You let her out of the front door, to be confronted by a wall of cool air. You take a big breath in, but the cold makes your nose numb and senseless. On the exhale, you can see your warm breath against the air, forming a cloud. It’s an unbeatable sensation, one that you can’t wait until winter to experience again. 

Opening a can of beans with a ring pull

I don’t use a snazzy plastic device like this GIF does. But the visual is there.

I Nominate:

HUGE Announcement For All Book Lovers!

If you’d read this far, you may me interested in my new account on Instagram! This time last year I had a bookstagram. It gradually morphed into a lifestyle account, which now has over 1.4K followers (thank you all so much!). Posting book content on there seemed a bit inappropriate, considering the audience are more interesting in the positivity and lifestyle niches. SO I went the extra mile to start up a new bookstagram, @kittyjadebooks, to satisfy all of my bookish needs! I post daily photos of books, regularly update you on my story and am always chatting about books with all of you. If that’s something you’re interested in, click here. Thank you so much for the support already! I’m very excited for the future of that account.

  1. Thanks for accepting the nomination and for the sweet shoutout!! I love the feelings you picked and I can totally relate to all of them especially the one about the breeze on a hot day because it is mid-summer right now and I am so done with the heat lol!

  4. Such a unique post idea! I’m just going back and liking posts I’ve read but couldn’t find the like button to show it! I don’t know what to call it but the book page separator thing is so clever. That way you don’t have to hold the book constantly!

    I also enjoy the soothing and therapeutic sound of rain. I feel my most productive cuddled up inside with a warm chai latte, the sound of rain pattering on my windows.
