is a collection of bittersweet moments by regular folk. These moments occur after witnessing something successfully beautiful, well-designed, original, thoughtful, witty, or just darn-tootin’ cool. Moments that make you think: “*&$#! I shoulda-coulda-woulda thought of that myself!!!”. But alas, it is too late as someone swifter and brighter already has. So after taking a moment to mentally-play the assassination of said genius, we instead come to this blog and add to this list of all things that make our hearts ache for more.

We enjoy your participation – not only in this blog but in your own life. Keep your eyes open for those good things that you don’t always expect. Leave comments to the prompts. Email tips on your own good heartaches at and we’ll do our best to share your painfullygoods by reposting with credits.

PainfullyGood is now also looking for contributors! See here for details.
