    Love this - I will definitely have to steal some of these (32 stands out as a good place to start)

    I love this idea! You've got a great mix of things on here, and I think you can do every single one of them. My favorite is #27....but why not take it a step farther and write it down somewhere? Whenever you're feeling down, you'll be able to take it out and look at it, and think how awesome it'll be to look back in a year and see all the things you found joy in. Good luck!
