Some time ago I conducted a project during which I asked visitors to my site to tell me what inspires them—things they consider “natural highs.” As a result of this effort, I’ve collected more than two thousand statements, which I am happy to present here.
So as not to overwhelm you, I’ve configured this page to display several such statements at random. You can see a new set by reloading the page.
- A special glance.
- Seeing someone you love do something outstanding.
- That one beautiful picture of your child out of an otherwise terrible roll of film.
- When a pack of gum lasts a whole week!!!
- Cooking for your girlfriend’s family and having them not only like it, but ask you to cook again later that week.
- Getting an unexpected inheritance.
- Cooking your lover’s favourite dish and watching him enjoy it thoroughly (And making love after that).
- A new mountain bike.
- Sex at 6:00 Monday morning with your wife.
- Picking up the phone and hearing, “We’d like to offer you the position….”.
- The anticipation of a trip with old college friends.
- Making up silly song titles whilst out walking the dog.
- In the dead of winter, lying in a clean bed after a hot bath and feeling the soft sheets on your toes.
- Walking through a toy store and remembering when that was your life.
