It is a good thing to take stock of what is essential, I need to do it more often and focus on those things and let the rest go. Your list and mine are not that different--thank you for the lead.

Time outside and Coca cola! Much of my list would include what you have on yours.

Now this is one I will have to think about. Definitely a tidy house, but wish it were cleaner. Lists, creativity, family, books, music, wishing for more laughter.

NICE essentials, Relyn! On my list would be my hubby, family & friends. My paints & brushes, my needle & thread. :o) ((HUGS))

There are several things (a lot of things, actually) on your list that I would have to ditto. Lipgloss, camera, family... not necessarily in that order!

A number of those would be on mine too, and correct and grammatical speech or writing would be one of them too. I had better stop using so many exclamation marks! (Oops).

Oldies, but Goodies
