We often talk about what is triggering, but what things make bring you a greater comforting feeling or sense for no apparent reason exactly (like comfort foods), often probably from childhood?

Some I can think of atm are:

roses
big dogs
Christmas trees with lights/ decorations
cake
ice cream
Heinz 57 sauce
the smell of campfires and snowblower gas
those cheap patio lanterns 🙂
horse carousels
those really cheap white paper plates, the flimsy ones, I can't find them anywhere!
the beach,, docks with water lapping on the edges
chipmunks
robins
sparrows, chickadees
candle flames
peaceful starry nights
twinkling snow that looks like diamonds everywhere
twinkling water on a lake
peaceful sunsets

How about you? 😊
 
Any food at all
Sunsets
Christmas decorations
Bodies of water, especially creeks or the ocean
Animals
Plants
Being in nature
Rain and snow
Whispering and soft speaking
Rainbows in real life
Also sparrows and chickadees! All little birds
Being wrapped up in a blanket with a stuffed animal
Hiding in a cozy enclosed space, like the closet
Girly kids toys
Cool rocks
Books
Cartoons
Magazines

Full of sugar or salt foods
Fiction
Spending time with my friends
People saying I was right
Sad music
Learning stuff about anything that makes me curious
Being the one in control but without the responsibility that come with it
Visiting shops of all kind (supermarket, clothes, dvd, books, food...)
Alone in my bed hugging my stuffed red panda
 
2 rocks, one written on, one not.
A light in or Christmas lights on in a house, nearby or that I'm coming to (not my own).
A cup of coffee inside by a window.
The smell and feel of a rose on my nose.
A turkey sandwich on white bread with a bit of mayo and stuffing.
Crumb cake, esp heated with a bit of milk poured over the cake part.
A cold Mountain Dew out of the can or a clear (white) cream soda out of the bottle.
Taking pics with a real camera.
(Artist) paints, paint brushes.
Horses.
Sundresses.
Ladybugs.
Walking along the shoreline in wet sand and bare feet.
Trees with messages engraved in to the trunks.
Cool gentle breezes.
