Have > Want. Monday January 9, 2017

I know you've had one of these:

"A Millionaire Moment"

A Millionaire Moment is when you have an experience that couldn't be better if you were a millionaire. It's a moment that no amount of money could improve upon.

My Millionaire Moments are really simple. They include this week's Top Ten:

1) Curling up in bed exactly when I'm genuinely tired and I want to, and then having a 'naughty' nap - usually when I 'ought' to be doing something else... bliss.

2) The Morning Shower in Dawn's welcoming light.

3) A Vossen flannel - yes, I'm serious - best flannels I've come across on the planet.

4) Getting just the tone I've been listening for on my Bass Guitar.

5) Getting that signature 'Vangelis' sound on my synth.

6) Open harmonics on the Guitar.

7) Finding the perfect coffee blend and combination with cream.

8) Discovering the perfect tea and milk combination.

9) Hearing that Dawn Chorus in Spring when the birds just give it... everything!

10) Reading a kind word from Moodscopers!

None of these are expensive, and none of them could be improved by throwing any more money at them.

They are moments where what I have is greater than what I want.

'Life' is all about 'Chemistry' to me. In those 'Millionaire Moments' - my body and mind are bathed in 'happy chemicals' - those chemicals that say, "Hey, this is OK! I love it!" And here's the really exciting bit:

I am the Chemist.

I can make those chemicals because I can repeat those experiences.

I'm going to invite you to press 'pause' and list some of your Millionaire Moments.

Then I'm going to ask you to commit to having more of the same moments - at least one a day, and maybe more.

They have to be something you've already experienced that you can repeat at low or no cost.

They have to be something that you have in within your reach without having to buy anything more. They don't need anybody else's agreement - they need to be within your control.

They express the truth that what you have > what you want.

This, my friend, could be your best recipe for happiness this year.

Now, go, have some more of these moments...

I understand what you mean, as some days (not often) I can appreciate the smallest of things. But for some time now I cannot appreciate anything. I used to bath daily, it's now weekly and a chore. I used to put my favourite music on and actually enjoy my housework or DIY jobs like painting. Now I can't even listen to music and as for the housework, well don't ask! My one and only plant has even died through neglect. So has my dog (sorry, not true, just a sick joke there). But my point is that sometimes, we cannot enjoy anything. All these little treats that you refer to, become painful chores and my struggle has been going on for so long now, I can only hope there is some end to it all. And if I became a proper millionaire I don't think it would make the slightest bit of difference to how I feel.

Jane Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 7:39am

I hope it's ok you to send you a hug Molly. Love Jane x

Leah Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 7:49am

Molly, I am not sure anything I write will make a difference but I hear your frustration and your pain. When low it is hard to appreciate anything.You express yourself very well something that I find hard to do when feeling down. Does it help in any way to keep a journal describing what is happening and how you feel? Thinking of you, Leah.

Mary Wednesday Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 8:09am

Sending a gentle hug Molly. Hang on my dear; just hang on. It *does* get better. Eventually. Just hang on.

Hopeful One Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 8:27am

Hi Molly- sorry to hear that for you at present nothing seems interesting or worth doing or worth while..I would like to add my cyber xoxo to those of the others. When I was in the trough of my depression( our depressions are our own) and felt like you do I made it a point to congratulate myself on literally anything I did- even something as simple as getting up and brushing my teeth!.I would say as an encouragement to myself" I am now one step further forward than I was before." which was indisputable. When we are depressed we do beat ourselves up as our AUNTS (Automatic Unconscious Negative Thoughts- I made that one up by putting NUTS and ANTS together -they share the same first letter meaning with AUNTS) ) as voiced by our Inner Critic who has the upper hand.

Molly Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 9:36am

thank you x

Lex Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 10:18am

Hi Molly - it seems you have many who understand this kind of feeling you've shared. I do too. I was going to say that today's message was not the right one for you at this time, but, on reflection, I think it was a catalyst to help you share. I really appreciate what you've shared, I understand this type of feeling and state all too well, and I'm sending you hugs along with my other Moodscope friends. I believe it will pass - I don't know that - I believe that. Love never fails in the long run, and I can sense the love being poured out in your direction today.

Molly Tue, Jan 10th 2017 @ 5:25am

Thank you everyone, I found all your comments very comforting. Support like this goes a long way xx

Tychi's Mum Tue, Jan 10th 2017 @ 12:53pm

Molly I too can understand how you are feeling at the moment - I have been there. Please, please, just hang on in there...it WILL pass. How long have you been feeling this way? Is there anything that you can find a tiny bit of comfort in? I, like you, cannot listen to music or watch TV. I am lucky though, as I am able to read. I have to choose my reading material very carefully (simple, easy stuff with no darkness and definitely no comedy. I do not find ANYTHING remotely funny). Good luck Molly...please know that the Moodscope family is rooting for you. Sending you a huge, warm hug x

Molly Tue, Jan 10th 2017 @ 11:45pm

Thank you for this Tychi's Mum. I try and tell myself it will pass but it has been a while now, not helped by being made redundant from my stressful job. Initially a relief but then I found I was not useful anymore and haven't been able to 'get back out there'. I rarely leave the house and people give logical advice which is not the answer, as I feel as I feel, I know the answers! I just cannot do anything about it but I have found this site comforting and helpful. For people who don't know me to sound like they care really does give me a bit of a boost. I used to take the mood test most days, a while ago, then stopped, but I never commented on posts till recently. A very warm bunch indeed and I send you a hug back, thank you x

Lou Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 7:03am

What a great blog! I was thinking about what to put in my comment and realised that there are quite a few of these moments that I try and enjoy as often as possible; a hot shower, being absorbed in a good book, a perfectly brewed mug of tea and - no one who knows me will at all surprised - cat fuss!! I'll stop there but shall enjoy looking out for these moments today :)

Lex Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 10:19am

Hi Lou, thank you for your encouragement. I can declare with confidence that this has been my biggest mental breakthrough in a long, long time. And it is continuing. The joy of a new toothbrush, a change of soap brand... I'm feeling ridiculously rich for a reassuringly low price! May your moments continue, increase and spread.

Jane Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 7:37am

Oh Lex , thank you! What a great start to the day! I had a dreadful night, so little sleep, and thought I couldn't face the day. Then I read your post and instantly thought of my millionaire moments. Now I'm grinning from ear to ear! Thought I would share - although I've 'cheated' and put 11!

When my poem was used on Moodscope and helped others
Walking with my daughter and our dog in the winter sunshine
Making Mum laugh
Producing a top piece of work
Getting a good mark for an assignment
Watching Andy Murray win
Watching my Mum watching Michael Ball sing 'you'll never walk alone,'
Completing at least half of the cryptic crossword
Delivering a good presentation
Seeing the spire of Salisbury cathedral when I go back to visit
Writing about my millionaire moments on the Moodscope blog

Mary Wednesday Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 8:10am

Jane, that's so lovely! Especially the one about your mum!

Lex Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 10:22am

Lovely, Jane, lovely! I'm with Mary on your Mum... and Salisbury Cathedral I love. I'm also with Lou with the cat fuss. Sometimes I'm too low/busy to give the cats attention, but Mickey has the most appreciative purr on the planet. Give him 5 minutes and the symphony of bliss will resound!

Jane Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 10:27am

Thanks Mary, I love yours also xx

Jane Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 10:28am

Sounds fantastic Lex. I had cats most of my life and they brought me a lot of joy. My dog now also brings my much joy x

Jane Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 7:41am

And I will keep thinking, especially about some of the smaller things, especially on my 'bad' days. Thanks Lex.

Lex Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 10:23am

I agree, Jane. I'm actually making it my quest: to seek out those moments, and even provoke them on top of noticing them.

Orangeblossom Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 7:58am

Hi Lex, thanks for the tip which I will find time to consider & apply. I tend to try at contentment rather than the allusive quality of happiness. Are they the same some may argue?

Lex Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 10:25am

"Contentment" and "peace" are much more attractive words for me, Orangeblossom. I'm sure we all have been through or currently are in a position where Happiness seems elusive. At the moment, I'm honestly not sure if I'll ever be sustainably happy again, but I do have these little moments of bliss - and they are sustaining me. Here's to contentment and peace of mind.

Mary Wednesday Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 8:19am

The sensation of snuggling down in bed with clean sheets, clean pyjamas, having just had a shower.
Talking under summer moonlight with a friend
Starting a new book by a favourite author
Having a good writing day
Snuggling with my cats
Snuggling with my husband and children
Hearing that one of my blogs here has really helped someone
Producing a beautiful card or iced cake that I'm really proud of
Hearing that coming to see me in my professional role as an Image Consultant has transformed someone's life.

Lex Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 10:26am

"Snug" "Snuggling" - even the words are a 'moment' for me. Thank you, Mary. Books, books, books, writing, reading... snuggle, snuggle, snuggle!

Leah Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 8:31am

Thanks Lex.
Feeling the sweet juice drip down my arm as I savour the delicious taste of the tropics that is an Australian mango.
Managing to finally get showered and dressed at 5pm on a bad day.
The first time I had a blog published on Moodscope.
Every time someone comments on one of my blogs.
when someone shows compassion for another moodscoper.

Lex Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 10:32am

That's a great list, Leah... and an important one for all of us. Just look at the impact kind and compassionate words have from one Moodscoper to another, folks Can I just say, your first one was powerful writing too - I 'experienced' the mango because of the way you described the magic.

Tychi's Mum Tue, Jan 10th 2017 @ 12:32pm

There's definitely no mango like an Australian mango Leah!! Your comment took me right back to some wonderful memories of time spent with beautiful friends in Australia. Thank you x

Hopeful One Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 8:45am

Hi Lex- a great post.I could list my 'millionaire' moments (I agree with you the simpler and inexpensive the better) but for me holding my loved one in my arms and sharing a passionate kiss trumps anything else that I do as I realise that the things that we REALLY need and want cannot be bought.

Our laugh for today has adult content which some may find offensive.

Two bored casino dealers are standing behind the gambling table.A very attractive curvaceous young lady arrives and places a £20000 bet on a single roll of the dice. She says to them" If you don't mind I would like to play topless as it makes me fell lucky" With that she strips off her top and bra and shouts to the dice" Come on this girl needs new clothes!" A the wheels stop she says" I won, I won!!" and grabs her winnings which the clerks hand over to her and quickly departs. "What did she roll?" asks one clerk.Says the other "I don't know,I thought YOU were watching"

Lex Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 10:36am

That is a joke, dear Hopeful One, that Derren Brown would be proud of. I have shared on Facebook already! As for the passionate kiss - a tad more difficult 'cos I can't remember the last time I had one but I get your point. Relish those moments... those are the Magic Moments that the song celebrates.

Tutti Frutti Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 9:16am

Hi Lex,
1) walking somewhere slightly wild and spotting birds and animals
2) snuggling on the sofa with my husband or daughter to watch a favourite programme.
3) the sea (unfortunately takes a bit of travelling)
4) borrowing my daughter's gerbils for a while - they are very funny and quite cuddly if you can manage to persuade them to stay still for a bit.
5)a favourite book
6) colouring/drawing something beautiful
7) cool bits of maths from time to time
8) playing the piano
9) singing
10) stained glass windows on a sunny day ( preferably with good music in the background)

Lex Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 10:38am

Tutti Frutti, ou have transported me! Instantly to Stained Glass moments - I love those too. And you're snuggling like Mary. But the birds... oh yes! The other day we saw two buzzards at rest. I think this was the first time I'd seen a pair. And then I hit an enormous pot hole because I was looking excitedly at an Egret. As the song goes, "Egrets, I've had a few!"

John Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 9:49am

1) trying to perfect "fly me to the moon" on guitar
2) watching the hares playing in the fields behind us
3) hearing my wife and a friend having a giggle in another room

Lex Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 10:39am

Yes! Yes!! Yes!!! John, and as a bass player, I'd love to join you on your flight to the moon...

Adrian Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 10:12am

Great blog Lex.

Paradise, Adrian, paradise...

Peter Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 10:51am

Thank you Lex, you made my day.
Thank you Molly, I know these days, when I couldn't laugh about jokes, funny stories I used to laugh about "on normal days". Then I knew: I had caught again some kind of a "mind flu". At moodscope I learnt, depression is like a flu, we can do something to cure, little step by little step, looking at little «not so bad moments» and enjoy these tiny rays of hope. And like a flu, the darkness faded a bit away and it was a good and helpful moment, when I could laugh on an old joke like this again: «When I see lovers' names carved in a tree, I don't think it's sweet. I just think it's surprising how many people bring a knife on a date.»
And then I know again and agree again: Life is better when you are laughing.
And it's definitely better, when you are able (again) to laugh.
Laugh and love and thxxs to all moodscopers
Peter

Lex Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 12:06pm

Et tu, Peter, et tu. Knowing that what one shares is valued is such a Millionaire Moment for me. Thank you.

Molly Tue, Jan 10th 2017 @ 5:52am

Thank you Peter. Funnily enough (excuse the pun) I am still able to laugh, maybe slightly manic. But those that don't know me would not have any idea there was anything wrong. I've been worse, but it's passed more quickly. This is dragging on and I have no motivation to do anything about it. I do live in hope, I do believe I'm a fighter, I do believe there is some light at the end of the tunnel. There has to be... Lex, thank you, I actually had a millionaire moment after all.....when reading the kind responses on here xx

DAVE Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 12:30pm

Hi Lex,
The have and wants of life aye? 'Millionaire Moments' are around us all, but caught up in the demands of material, fashion and fashionable gadgets will be someone's downfall for sure.
We have so much beauty around us, if we could only find the time to...As I call it..time to 'stop and smell the flowers'. We did not have the choice, but this Earth does not compare to Mars, if you get my drift !
Orangeblossom has a vital point, contentment, allows The Inner Peace, and Happiness into our hearts, finding it is hard for some, CREATING it, decluttering, living within our means, and stopping ourselves from going 'over the cliff' with all the Lemmings who're caught up in this, their very 'Plastic' world in which SOME, believe happiness lies, WILL DO WONDERS to life's daily routine.
Molly my heart goes out to you, sounds like you've 'burn't out' ? Perhaps a break away from your routine is the answer...Refresh, Reset, Reevaluate who you really are and where you're meant to be ? After all HOW do you women cope..Cooking, Washing, Ironing, Shopping, then there's the family and animals demanding your urgent attention. Maybe that's where you are at present. Living in the 'NOW' is essential, today is a Gift, known as the 'PRESENT' find enjoyment in the above suggestions.
Just my opinionated thought.
God bless you Molly.
Dave X.

Lex Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 1:47pm

We love your opinionated thought, Dave. Who wants to be a millionaire, eh?

Molly Tue, Jan 10th 2017 @ 5:57am

Thank you Dave x

Michael Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 12:32pm

Thanks or this Lex.
I am with you on the bass and guitar tones, coffee, tea and dawn chorus (and last night I was treated some owls).
As I write my constant companion, Huckleberry, (a Westie) is curled up next to me on the bed, he is priceless.
After a couple of shots of Tequilla last night, I closed my eyes and meditated and to my tremendous surprise my heart was open and I could feel love and bliss again and I suddenly remembered how the world looks when your heart is open ( I have been shut down and numb for years!)....NB I'm not advocating this as a remedy and I did not continue drinking after it was over (fairly short lived) as it felt like a gift, a little reminder from the universe.

Lex Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 1:49pm

Beautiful, Michael. Owls and a Westie - again we are aligned. I've let the meditation and the mindfulness drop, so I'll take that as a helpful nudge back on track. Cheers!

Vickie Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 12:35pm

Great inspiration Lex! A few months back I started writing down when I would have a millionaire moment - experiences that made me feel that I was at peace with the universe and nothing could make that moment better. Many of the items on my list have already been mentioned (even my purring cats) which makes me feel even more connected to the group.

I still have days where I find it hard to appreciate anything but at some point I drag myself back to my list to remind myself that I can experience moments of bliss and that I am the chemist - not sure why I need to keep reminding myself of this:)

Molly, I am thinking of you.

Lex Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 1:50pm

Hi Vickie... this cat thing is working, isn't it? I even recorded Mickey and played him on the radio when I used to do my breakfast shows! Hey Mickey! I think we all need to keep reminding ourselves because there are a lot of unhelpful distractions that lead us elsewhere. Back to the heart, eh? And an open one at that, if we follow Michael's lead.

Molly Tue, Jan 10th 2017 @ 6:02am

Thank you Vickie. Lex, maybe I need to get a cat :-)

Lexi Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 12:49pm

Great post, Lex. I think I will come up with my 10 when I go to bed, so that I have sweet dreams. xo Lexi

Lex Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 1:51pm

Perfect timing, Lexi, simply perfect x

Wyvern Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 1:25pm

I have at times been so down that 'millionaire moments' seemed an impossibility. For several months a few years ago, I kept a diary of 'one good thing each day'. Maybe penny moments? Just any little thing that helped me to feel 'not quite so bad'. I suspect a lot of them would turn out to be mm's if I were to go back and read that diary when my mind is in a good place, but recording these little things did help.

Lex Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 1:53pm

It's focus, Wyvern, isn't it? When I'm down, my dragons are enormous. But even dragons can be overcome... even though it truly seems impossible. There's a proverb about the little foxes that spoil the vines - tiny compromises that destroy our happiness, but I believe the opposite is true... storing up tiny victories mounts up over time.

The Gardener Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 3:52pm

At the moment can only view those moments in the past - through photos. Blackbird's early and late glorious solos are high points - and, it means winter is over. Mr G had a week respite, and daughter for 3 days - marvellous company - but as the disease gets worse the reaction when on my own again is a real downer. Magic moment yesterday - but cheating, as it was money. I was just working out a new garden project - could only do the preparations. Then daughter gave me a money present - so the garden is no longer just a project, it can now be an accomplishment. Perhaps real magic because thanks to all sorts of problems the business she runs with our eldest son looks fragile, enormous amount of work to stay in the same place. Now, I find (it all comes out round the famous kitchen table) that she has trained for another type of business and is already earning from it, she has salted away a nice pension, her house value has gone up 40% and having ditched a seriously useless partner she has lost the misery eating weight and looks super. So, money is involved - but perhaps Lex will allow the change from worrying to pride.

Lex Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 5:05pm

I'm a tart, Dear Gardener... and will allow anything that works (as long as it doesn't restrict anybody else's freedom!) You go ahead and get whatever message and value you can from today's exchanges!

Tilly Mint Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 6:49pm

Hello Lex. I just wanted to say what a lovely warm blog this morning. Everyone's are of course great and thought provoking and helpful but every now and again one catches my eye, or should I say sparks a positive happy note in my mind. I love the idea of reflecting daily or as and when up for it and able, a millionaire moment or two. And it's such a pleasant way to actually help you consider aspects of your day, week, life, pastimes etc in a cost way rather than often helpful but more structured formal ways. This is what I'd call user friendly! I'm relatively new to Moodscope but just being asked by someone in cyber space how I am each morning helps and matters to me. There's no emotional burden. You can be completely honest. I have for many many years adopted a coping strategy where by I write everything down. If I can't get my point across, if I feel any negative emotions, if I'm trying to solve a problem, the list goes on. I've always several themed note books on the go, pads and pens and post it notes all over the house (and in the car....). But back to the Millionaire Moments. Whilst a lot of what I write is heart breaking to re read (though never thrown away), this will be something positive, cheerful, and comforting to do and me being me I'll of course wrote it down. I'm actually looking forward to it. I'll treat myself to a nice new notes book especially for my moments. So hope my comment makes sense. Thanks again for a lovely idea x

Zoe Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 7:49pm

I am fairly new to Moodscope, but really enjoy reading the daily blog posts. I rarely comment but today's blog post really made me reflect on the everyday things I do get happiness from. It also allows me to remember that feeling when I'm in my lowest moments, and gives me hope that the end of the 'low' moment is near. Something which I have recently learned, is that I find my solace in animals. My boyfriend wanted to take me to the Zoo on the Sunday just gone, and I couldn't face the idea at the time. I could barely motivate myself to get out of bed, it was going to be a bad day, I could feel 'it' looming. I heard a meow outside the house, and it was his cat, sat outside in his garden, staring right at me. I don't really know why I got up for the cat but I did, just because I wanted to let it in the house to stroke it. Anyway, it got me up and once we were at the Zoo, although I was dreading it, it turned out to be one of the most enjoyable days I've had in a long time. Just to stand and watch the animals, knowing they had no expectations of me, knowing they live their lives in the moment, hour by hour, day by day. I found comfort in that. I also recommend going to a Zoo in January (much cheaper, fewer people, more peace). It turned out to be a far greater day than I ever expected, and the internal fog that threatened to cloud my mood cleared for that day. It gave me a day of peace and happiness. Something which I will try to remind myself during my foggy sad days. Anything that gives us a glimmer of light through the fog deserves to be remembered on a daily basis, if only to get us out of bed. Every small step counts. Thank you for your inspiring post Lex.

Molly Tue, Jan 10th 2017 @ 6:11am

Wow I'm off to the zoo tomorrow! Well I won't be but I enjoyed this post. Animals bring such pleasure. Glad you had a good day.

Salt Water Mum Mon, Jan 9th 2017 @ 8:00pm

'I'm a tart dear gardener...' Very funny reply Lex, I laughed aloud!
Delighted to hear your good news The Gardener.
Molly, I'm thinking of you.
Mary, a good friend of mine calls clean body, clean PJ's and clean sheets 'the Holy Trinity !!

A personal millionaire moment recently - I had three girlfriends here for dinner one evening and we were chatting and giggling until all hours. When I went up to check on my children, my son was still awake although it was so late. I said I was sorry for keeping him up and asked were we too noisy? He answered 'you are quite noisy but I love hearing you laughing with your friends mum, you sound so happy...'
Lovely moment. We had a big cuddle.

SWM x

Molly Tue, Jan 10th 2017 @ 6:15am

:-) lovely

Eva Tue, Jan 10th 2017 @ 7:38am

What lovely moments to read about, and also lovely to read Molly's comments, Molly your mood seems to have brightened a bit during yesterday, I hope you feel a bit better today too. :)

I love to walk, I don't always like to get myself out, but once I am out I love the fresh air on my face and to notice the buildings and architecture around me. If I am especially lucky we might be in the country side and then I usually have to be herded as I discover a beetle or some fascinating lichen, or a fern...

Hot chocolate!

Bouncing at a gig, Basement Jaxx is such an energy boost (music is coming back in to my life)

Seeing a painting come together.

Cat love

Love

Molly Tue, Jan 10th 2017 @ 11:35pm

Hi Eva, my mood did improve a bit but not for long. I have spent the day in bed with no urge to do anything, especially leave the house, but I have found this site very helpful x

the room above the garage Tue, Jan 10th 2017 @ 12:45pm

Hello Lex, great blog. I'm choked with a hideous virus that isn't moving and I'm catching up...
I loved reading your list (a flannel? really? new blog needed here please!!) and all replies. Molly, I'm hoping you feel better today. Sometimes all we need to know is that someone is out there...
My true story Millionaire Moment is...as a reasonably health conscious, largely gluten free, and non baker, baking a batch of muffins and finding you have enough mix for 18 rather than 12. Eating all the extra ones in two sittings and still coming out looking wide-eyed angelic like you haven't even touched one. I paid for it later!!!! love ratg x.

Molly Tue, Jan 10th 2017 @ 11:36pm

Thank you x

Tychi's Mum Tue, Jan 10th 2017 @ 1:15pm

Hi Lex, I loved this blog and have saved it into my favourites folder.

When I'm well I naturally savour those Millionaire Moments....I've never heard them described that way and I love it.

But, when I'm in the depths of a crash, the possibility of a Millionaire Moment feels a universe away. I can't imagine feeling joy in anything ever again.

Happily, I am well, so here are a few of mine....I agree wholeheartedly on so many of those that have already been listed;

Looking up at the stars in the night sky
Feeling the warmth of the sun on your face
Hearing the laughter of friends and family
Secretly watching a hedgehog feeding in your garden at night
Snuggling, snuggling and more snuggling....on my own, with my lovely husband or with be beloved dog Tychi or beloved cat Michael.
