2 In 52 Lists Project

52Lists Project v.11 // Essentials

This week’s list is all about essentials. There are so many things that I feel are essential to living a happy and fulfilled life. Here are a few of what I would call my essentials, some with greater meaning than others.


God’s Word – A love letter written for me from my King. An instruction manual for life. A Reminder of His promises.

Worship music – I was created to worship God in all areas of my life. I especially connect with Him through worship music. It’s what keeps me going when life is hard.

Prayer – Meditating on God’s goodness and attributes and putting my needs before the cross each day are essential to moving forward in life.

My girlfriends – God has given me some of the most beautiful women to walk out this life with. I am truly grateful for each one.

Coffee – Even though it doesn’t really do anything for me anymore (as I am nearing the age of 50), it’s comforting for me to drink. It’s like a big, warm hug from the inside out.

My computer – I am thankful that God has provided a vehicle for me to get my writing out through blogging and to connect with so many beautiful women across the globe.

My glasses – Without my glasses, I couldn’t see to type or to drive.

Water – I don’t drink as much as I should, but I know how it makes me feel. It’s so important to my health.

Rest – Something else I do not get as much of as I should. Rest is essential to living, to reconnecting with God, to my overall health.

Laughter – I can take life too seriously at times. Laughter is music to my ears and medicine to my soul.

What is something that is essential in your life? I would love for you to share in the comments below.

    What a fabulous list, Barbie! I too cannot imagine my everyday life without God’s Word and prayer. I’d have to add one thing to my essentials: food! I love to eat!
