Best Days Ever

Updated: May 9, 2020

I’m a very visual person.


Sometimes I need a reminder of how great my life has been.


Recently, I started a Google document, entitled “Best Days Ever."


My intention is to reference this list when I’m having a tough day or going through a difficult phase of life.


I simply write a small blurb about some of my favorite moments in my life.


Here are a few examples from my list:

  • Spending the entire afternoon with my younger brother playing Banjo-Tooie and 007 on Nintendo64 in his room.

  • Drinking too much limoncello with my best friend in Rivello, Italy and getting lost on our walk back to our bed and breakfast. We had one of the best meals, walked for hours, and saw some of the most beautiful views imaginable.

  • Watching “Goonies” in LA at an outdoor theatre with three of my closest friends.

  • Surprising my brothers in Ocean City, NJ on a family vacation I didn’t think I’d be able to make.

  • Cooking dinner with my dad and talking about life as he learned how to live on his own again after a 10-year marriage.

  • Taking a road trip with my mom to visit the college I knew I wanted to attend.

I went from nothing two years ago to this. "Hallie, I can't believe how far you've come," my uncle said as he looked around my apartment. I didn't have any money. I was actually in debt. I didn't have
