10 of My Favorite Feelings Tag
I have never really thought about my favorite feelings and this prompt is an opportunity for me to explore what are those feelings that I really love. Since I still haven’t figured this out, I’m just gonna write whatever pops in my head right now.
1. Looking at the sky.
Whether it be day or night, one of my favorite feelings is to feel mesmerized by nature’s beauty. Looking at the sky makes me wonder and wander, in which I really love. I could still remember the feeling of being in the airplane’s window seat wherein I could see the clouds– there’s this feeling of content and awe. The sky is just so beautiful that I don’t have one certain feeling when I look at it. Maybe it would be all feelings at once.

2. Waking up early.
This quarantine has made me realize that if I could break a bad habit instantly, it would be staying up late. Waking up early has been a game-changer for me and it makes me energetic and productive throughout the day. Waking up early makes me appreciate the birds chirping and the early morning house noise– which I totally live for. Then I’d fix my bed and have my 30-minute book reading.
3. Finishing a philosophy book.
Lol, this has got to be one of my favorite feelings ever. Philosophers and their philosophy can either make you or break you, that’s why I feel joy when I finish a philosophical book. To be completely honest, I haven’t really read a lot of philosophy books as a whole. I only read it in portions or in chapters to get an overview of what it talks about. Oh god, you can’t imagine the joy it brings me to be constantly reading and finishing a philosophical book. Right now, I’m reading Kierkegaard’s Spiritual Writings and I’m so glad I’m so near at finishing it.
4. Writing and/or journaling.
I know I’m not the only one who feels something when they’re writing. Now that I’ve been writing mostly for the blog, it brings me joy and it increases my passion. I remember writing articles or essays for my academic requirements wherein I shed a lot of tears and frustration to finish a paper and to be completely honest, it WAS a lot more than a bad feeling. But now I miss it and I’m such a clown for this. On the other hand, I really love journaling because it makes me so creative and it’s also one of the things you can do for self-improvement.

5. Tidying my room.
I am honestly so bad at this but whenever I do this, it makes me so satisfied, contented and neat. Ever since I got home, I’ve been consistently trying to make my room look better and one of the things I’m proud of is that I’ve finally arranged my closet, which is located in my room. I also have my desk or my workspace in my room so it’s important to keep it tidy. It makes me so happy to see my stuff organized because when I don’t, I myself, would feel like a complete mess too.
6. Listening to music.
Who doesn’t love the feeling of listening to music? Since there are different music genres, there’d also be different feels but it’s still music. It makes you feel something and sometimes, it’s something that I really need the most. Also, stream Taylor Swift’s Folklore. I love Bon Iver and Tay’s music so I was so excited about Exile! It would be my favorite song in Folklore as of now, and I’d love to know yours! Please comment it below.
7. Creating art.
Most of you know that I create digital art and I feel so much happiness when I finish a work that I’m proud of. It makes me inspired to do more. Please check out my artworks page and my digital art shop.
8. Hyping up my friends.
I legit feel so happy too when my friends feel happy. As much as possible, I really try to hype up my friends because they deserve it. I like to tell them that they’re a blessing, they are beautiful and that they are worthy to be a human person.
9. Helping other people and speaking up.
Even though my voice trembles when I speak up, it’s still better than not speaking up. It takes me a lot of courage to voice out my informed opinions and when I do, it makes me glad. Also, I really enjoy helping other people and supporting them in any way that I can.
10. Praying after a long tiring day.
Most of you know that even though I was born and raised a Christian, I myself still chose this path that was introduced to me and continued being a Christian. Prayers are my go-to whenever I feel lost, anxious, scared, fearful or even when I am contented and happy. Since I have my personal relationship with Christ, it feels SO much better when I talk to Him at the very end of the day.
That’s it for the 10 of my favorite feelings! Thank you so much again, Elle, for nominating me to do this. I legit had so much fun writing this post and it made me reflect a lot. I hope you enjoyed this! To my nominees, it’s definitely okay if you won’t participate, there’s no pressure in doing this one!
Thank you all so much for reading and I’ll see you in the next post! Bye!
