Define Yourself by the Things You Love

I've noticed that people have a tendency to define themselves by the things they're against or don't like. Somebody asks what kind of music you listen to and instead of getting excited about all the awesome stuff in your Spotify library you start talking about the kinds of music that annoys you or that you don't like. Sound familiar? In my case this kind of thinking is often the case, and that's why I decided to share four of my favorite moments from October that define me by things I really love and get excited about. And so naturally, the first picture is cake.

1. Sweet Things

I've always had a weakness for sweet things, and even though I'm much more adult about how much sugar I eat now than as a child (I only had this cake for my second breakfast, so you see how responsible my eating habits are now), life is much better because chocolate cake exists. Simple yet brilliant.

2. Colors

Flowers are the true masters when it comes to color, and I love to bring some home especially in the darker months of the year.

3. Cats

Luna the cat gives me so much joy. It's a dream come true to have a fluffy little friend to call my own and I feel so lucky that I get to take care of such a sweet and beautiful creature.

4. Sharing my thoughts

In October I've really enjoyed scribbling down a lot of my thoughts and gotten into the habit of writing a little almost every day. Now my laptop might not be of the latest model, and I certainly get some confused looks from others when I walk into a cafΓ© occupying at least two tables while getting some writing done. But you know what they say, "if you don't fit in, you're probably doing the right thing".

What things that you love define you?
