Things have been very stressful for me lately. Work is very, very busy, I have been dealing with a personal relationship issue, and my insomnia has really stepped it up a notch.
One of the things I do to de-stress, or when I can’t sleep, is listen to podcasts. Right now my favorite podcast is The Good Place: The Podcast, where actors, writers, directors, designers, and the creator talk about that marvelously beautiful, hilarious, and very very strange television show.
At the end of each episode, the host, Marc Evan Jackson, asks the guests “what’s good?” Some people talk about charities or activist organizations, and some simply talk about spending time with their families, or their pets, or their favorite ice cream flavor. Now I find myself asking that question often, especially when I’m feeling particularly frustrated or fatigued.
So here, I will share with you a few of the things that are good in my life right now. In no particular order, this is only a small fraction of what I find good in my life.
