The positive experience inventory is a partial list of experiences, behaviors, memories, observations imaginings and fantasies that are heartwarming, uplifting, energizing, or that make people feel good, happy, ecstatic, joyful, confident, strong, loved, capable, masterful, exuberant, euphoric, thrilled, excited, inspired, etc. For brevity's sake, we'll call these varieties of positive experience "PEs". There are certainly many unlisted categories and items. As you discover new ones of your own, add them to this list, and share them by sending them to the address listed below so we can add them to the KPEI for other people to consider. Use this list to open your eyes to and widen your view of PE opportunities. Use it to explore your positive experience memory (PEM) treasures to create a PEM Library.

( If you wish to share your PEMs, send them to the below address.
They'll be used for research and to help others enjoy positive, heartwarming feelings.
