Natural Highs Falling in love. Laughing so hard your face hurts. A hot shower. No lines at Wal*Mart. A special glance. Getting mail. Taking a drive on a pretty road. Hearing your favorite song on the radio. Lying in bed listening to the rain outside. Hot towels out of the dryer. Finding the sweater you want is on sale for half price. Chocolate milkshakes. A long distance phone call. A bubble bath. Giggling. A good conversation. The beach. Finding a $20 bill in your coat from last winter-or $5 for that matter. Laughing at yourself. Midnight phone calls that last for hours. Running through sprinklers. Laughing for absolutely no reason at all. Having someone tell you that you're beautiful. Laughing at an inside joke. Friends. Falling in love for the first time. Accidentally overhearing someone say something nice about you. Waking up and realizing you still have a few hours left to sleep.

Your first kiss. Making new friends or spending time with old ones. Playing with a new puppy. Late night talks with your roommate that keep you from sleeping. Having someone play with your hair. Sweet dreams. Hot chocolate. Road trips with friends. Swinging on swings. Watching a good movie cuddled up on a couch with someone you love. Wrapping presents for under the Christmas tree while eating cookies and drinking eggnog. Song lyrics printed inside your new CD so you can sing along without feeling stupid. Watching the sunrise. Kissing. Going to a really good concert. Getting butterflies in your stomach every time you see that one person. Making eye contact with a cute stranger. Winning a really competitive meet. Making chocolate chip cookies. Having your friends send you homemade cookies. Spending time with close friends. Babies. Seeing smiles and hearing laughter from your friends. Holding hands with someone you care about. Running into an old friend and realizing that some things (good or bad) never change. Relaxing on the shore of a lake or river. Discovering that love is unconditional and stronger than time. Riding the best roller coasters over and over again. Hugging the person you love. Watching the sunset. Getting out of bed every morning and thanking God for another beautiful day!
