I have seen so many people do these either weekly or monthly but tonight whilst putting Scarlett to sleep I looked around me and I just felt this overwhelming feeling or gratitude.
I am so grateful for everything I have in my life. Often I get so bogged down with all the negatives in my life that I forget about all the positives.
I have a lovely home that both James and I have worked very hard to have. Yes sometimes we have struggled and there have been some very tough times but we’ve made it through the other side. We don’t have everything we want but I appreciate the things we do have and the rest – well we will just have to keep working hard to get it!
Okay so our relationship isn’t perfect but somehow it works. There are times when we drive each other crazy but I guess that shows we are passionate – doesn’t it? I don’t spend as much quality time as I would like with James and he isn’t very romantic but he works long hours so that I can spend as much time at home with Scarlett and he makes me laugh (most of the time!)
We have the most supportive families. Without both of our Mums it wouldn’t be worth my while going back to work. So for that I am grateful! Without James’ step dad we wouldn’t live where we do. Without both of our families.. well I can’t even imagine what life would be like!
I have THE best friend EVER! He makes me laugh, he accepts me for me and Scarlett absolutely adores him.
And of course I have the most amazing little girl who I cannot believe is actually mine. I actually have a baby! She has made my whole world and I cannot explain the amount of love I feel for someone so small.
It is so easy to think of all the negatives in life but I dare you to think of the positives every once in a while because I bet it will shock you just how much you have to be grateful for. After all you are still here to tell the tale! 🙂
