15 of My Favourite Feelings


Hello everyone!

Today's blogpost is going to be a bit more personal, and is inspired by Essiebutton's new video. I'm going to share with you 15 of my favourite feelings, so with no further ado, let's get to it!

Found this gorgeous print on an etsy page, click the photo for a link!

  1. I have a large window right by my bed which has a gorgeous view over our tiny town. For christmas, my dad built a stand for my bed to be raised, so that I can literally lie with my head on my pillow and look at the view. I do this mostly in winter, because it's too light in summer and I wouldn't be able to fall asleep. This feeling makes me feel so small, but yet like I have the power to change the world.
  2. I really like the feeling of finishing a workout, especially one before school. It makes me feel so accomplished, like I'm finally working towards my goals, and it sets my entire day in the best mood.
  3. This might seem quite stupid, but I love the feeling I get after I've had a lesson with my science tutor. She explains everything so well, and it makes me feel so smart. It makes me feel like I actually have a chance at getting a good grade this year, which leads me to the next point.
  4. I'm someone who is very motivated by grades. It might be stupid, but seeing that I got an eight on my last assignment fills me with a joy that proves that all my hard work has payed off.
  5. Possibly my very favourite feeling is giving someone close to me a gift. I've just bought one for a very good friend of mine, and it just makes me so happy to imagine what they'll look like when they receive it, and know that I was thinking of them. I'm the worst at keeping secrets in this situation, so all my friends will know what they're getting for their birthdays as soon as I've bought it. I just get so excited, and I can't stop thinking about it!
  6. Some of you may know that I have family in England, who I visit every now and then. They live a long drive from the airport, and we usually arrive late at night. We always stop at the same service station for dinner, always buy the same food. Just the feeling of sitting in a rented car with a plastic bag of dinner on my lap, about to fall asleep and just looking at the roads as we drive past, makes me the happiest person on earth. I think it's because it allows me to properly look forward to the weekend, and I really love it.
  7. A lot of you probably agree with me on this, but another feeling I absolutely love is listening to music. I mean the kind where you play it so intently that it fills all of you, and you can't help but dance and sing out loud. I don't usually listen based on albums, but there are a couple of albums that are all I've been listening to for these past few weeks - X by Ed Sheeran, 1989 by Taylor Swift, Future Hearts by All Time Low, 5 Seconds of Summer, and the Hairspray soundtrack. I love having these tunes fill my body and soul, and it makes me almost have an out-of-body experience.
  8. I actually really enjoy the feeling of tidying. Not necessarily while I'm doing it, but looking at my clean and tidy desk or drawer makes me feel so organised, and like I can take on the world.
  9. Some of you may know that I'm a swimmer, but even more than swimming in the pool I really enjoy swimming outside when I'm not supposed to. There's something about knowing it's not the appropriate time to swim that makes it even more exciting. In my friend group, I always suggest that we go swimming when it's dark and late at night, bad weather or just not the typical time to swim for whatever other reason.
  10. I'm very into photography (although I haven't done it for a while, oops) and I love watching the photos download onto my computer after I've just been out. It makes me so happy to see what I've produced, and it always makes me so proud.
  11. I feel like I always mention friends who live in other places than me, but it's because I've moved around quite a lot. I love the feeling of talking to one of them for hours on end, about nothing in particular. We could literally be talking about anything, it just makes me feel so happy and appreciated.
  12. Nothing beats the feeling of coming home on a Friday and knowing that you have no plans and no work to do. The thought of all this time that you have nothing to do with makes me feel excited for all the possibilities there are.
  13. I'm quite a reminiscent person, and I really love looking back at old photos and letters. It makes me so nostalgic (but in a good way) and reminds me of all the people I love who love me back.
  14. Finishing a project, in particular a crafty one, makes me so happy. Just seeing what I've been able to create with my hands from ideas that started in my head feels incredible.
  15. I really don't like cars that drive fast or anything of the sort, but I love driving boats during the summer. The feeling of wind blowing my hair, almost blowing my contacts out of my eyes, the waves almost flipping our little dinghy, and the sound of the old engine struggling - nothing could ever beat that feeling. To me, that is the feeling of summer.
'These are a few of my favourite thiiiiiiiings' is the song that comes to mind right now. I don't know why that one, because I've never seen the Sound of Music, but I think I used to sing that song in choir, and I loved it. 

Anyway, those are a few of my favourite feelings, though far from all of them. Which feelings are your favourite? Do we share any of the same ones?

Also, please let me know what you'd like to see more of on my blog. What type of blogposts do you prefer, or are there any blogposts in particular you'd like me to write? I'm curious!

  2. I love looking back at things too, nostalgia is a strange feeling but I think that it's nice most of the time :)
    Peace xo

    1. I agree! Sometimes I get a bit too nostalgic though, and end up a mess. I don't think I'm the only one!

  3. This is such a beautiful post. I love the feeling of coming home with no plans and nothing to do. I always just watch Netflix on those days and it's so relaxing. I can relate to a lot of these things and I never even thought about how happy they make me. Its good to appreciate the small things in life xxx


    1. It's just the best feeling isn't it? Yep, I always go for Netflix too. Sometimes it's important to remember the little things, as you said, but I think this is something we all struggle with!
