Things to be grateful for


As many of you will have likely guessed by now, I spend a lot of my time dwelling on the more negative aspects of my life; today I'm trying to challenge this and spend time thinking about the positive parts, difficult as it might be. I have several things that I should be more grateful for and I definitely take for granted sometimes. My Friends are not appreciated nearly enough at times, and I definitely want to spend more time with them. I don't have the largest group of friends, but the ones that I have are so incredibly supportive of me and I need to return that favour more as friendships are about giving and receiving. I have a tendency to overlook my Family a lot of the time too, when actually I do really enjoy their support and company. They've given me a place to live in since I was born and look after me when I need it, which I've needed a lot the last few months, more than I'd ever admit to them but I've appreciated them more since I've got older.

I have the most amazing boyfriend, who literally is the rock I need. There for me whenever and wherever, I don't know where I would be or what state I would be in without him and his constant support. I don't show my appreciation often enough compared to what he does for me and I'm definitely going to change that. He keeps me levelheaded. As much as I have a love/hate relationship with work, I also find that it helps me have a routine, as well as the more obvious monetary gain. Some days I love it, I love who I work with and feel really happy to be a part of such a good team and they're the parts that I need to remember and focus on.

Mistakes are also something to be thankful for, even if they make you feel like you're absolutely worthless. It's so important to remember that making mistakes actually shapes you as a person, they encourage you to grow in wisdom and confidence and I want to always learn from my mistakes for as long as I can. They're a part of humanity, a part of life. I'm thankful to be alive, to have the chance to enjoy all of life's moments and surprises. Even if it's not all #lifegoals or #relationshipgoals etc., life is life and not something that should be valued by a hashtag or how many likes you receive. Life is precious and not everyone is as lucky as I am and I need to remember that.
