    Something that gets me high (heh, I like talking about it in this way) that I had no idea I’d enjoy so much is public speaking. I’ve had the opportunity in recent years to speak to groups of varying sizes, and it turns out that I LOVE IT! It provides such a rush of endorphins for me.

    Another guaranteed high? Seeing my daughter succeed at something and watching her beam with pride. This makes my heart sing in a way that not many other things can.

    Lastly, everyday highs: walks in nature, sunshine, my pets, water (seriously, I am obsessed with any body of water), momentarily having a clean home, and coffee. Always coffee.

    • I used to genuinely barter with my college professors to let me write a paper instead of speak in front of the class. I remember a professor once saying, “You’d rather write a 5-page paper, which is three times as much work, than speak for 5 minutes?” and I was like “Yup” and did (lol). So… you amaze me! I definitely am not afraid of public speaking anymore, but I’m not skilled at doing so if I need to memorize something or use cards or anything of that nature. I never learned that art form. I can riff off the top of my head easily, but… No one wants that person giving their wedding speech, now do they?

      I loved these answers and love learning more about you! (PS: Your public speaking comment gives me a forum prompt idea for next week. ** Insert Evil Laugh Here **)
