As it's a new year and I want to stop taking things in life for granted, as you never know when they will be taken away from you, I wanted to create this post, as when I went for this lovely canal side walk with my lovely boyfriend and adorable pup - Pepsi is his name hehee. It made me realise a few things whilst we were taking time out from things in the world...
1. The way my life is
I have a job, a lovely family, boyfriend, friends who are loyal, supportive, kind and thoughtful. I have a little spot in the blogosphere that I have built up all on my own, where I've had the opportunities to work with SO many brands, now this isn't bragging in anyway shape or form, this is merely me being proud of what I have achieved. From the likes of Boohoo, Zaful, FaceTox, DressLily, Frock & Frill and even and Australian brand called Mint Skin. It's amazing to think I even have viewers in Australia! I'm so thankful for everyone that has supported me on my journey of blogging and who I've met along the way!
2. Becoming who I am today
No matter how bad my past was, I'm thankful for it in a way, because I've made myself stronger, more confident, more independent, strong willed and push myself to my limits. Without the people that have come and go out of my life, and with the people that have stayed, I wouldn't be who I am today. And I'm happy and love the person I've become through this. There's no harm in loving who you are, it shows your confident in yourself.
Without music in my life I just wouldn't be me, it helps to make me feel all these different emotions and cheers me up when I'm down in a way that no one else can. Music is life.
4. Instagram & Comic Con
This may sound a bit silly to you guys, but without Instagram and Comic Con, I wouldn't of met the love of my life who I am with today. Also the opportunities of meeting new people and making new friends at Comic Con and through Instagram.
5. My Boyfriend
Going a little bit more personal, which is not something I really share much online as, well, you know, it's personal. But the man in my life I am so grateful for because of how much he does for me, keeps me safe, happy and for all the memories we've created together. I've just come to that time in life where I've come to realise how much we really take for granted and should appreciate more in life.
6. Friends who love me for me
I'm so happy to have the friends I have today. We've done and been through so much together, they've always been there for any random things that happen or stupid things that we do and laugh at. I'd never want them to change and love them all for who they are, and I'm so happy they feel the same.
7. Having a job
Now-a-days it's so difficult to get into a job because of all these stages you have to go through to show your good enough, I'm so grateful to have a job and earning my own money to spend on what I want.
8. Food - especially chicken
I'm thankful for this because there's people out there that may not always get the opportunity to eat 3 meals a day or more like we do. I'm thankful and grateful to not be in a position like that. Sorry to those vegetarians/vegans reading this but I just love chicken too much...
Smelling good all the time is something I love and am pleased to have in my life, as who wants to smell bad all the time?! My favourite is Valentino Donna if you didn't already know, as I always rave about it on Instagram.
This is a big thing, as we don't really realise how much we use it everyday. From showering, washing our hands, flushing the toilet, making food or drinks with it, endless possibilities you could use it for that we don't even realise we are taking for granted! I personally need it everyday because of how many times I wash my hands a day!
What are you grateful for in life?
I really hoped you liked reading this post! Please let me know your thoughts on this as I love reading your comments, they really make me smile!
