So last night I was lay in bed on my iPad reading other people’s blogs and I found one that got me thinking, thinking about how thankful I am for everything and everyone I have in my life at the minute =)
So where do I start? I guess a good place to start would be with the blog I was reading, so here it is, go check it out it might get you thinking too!
It’s called thoughtsunqualified and the post was about acceptance, mine isn’t quite the same but it’s around the same sort of topic =)
My family….. My family are amazing, don’t get me wrong sometimes they are annoying as hell but I wouldn’t change them for the world, my dad is hilarious and my mom, well sometimes we clash, especially when I was younger, were both very hot headed but not so much these days, I’ve learned to just sit back and ignore, learnt which battles should be fought and which I should let go, but all the same she is an amazing woman, I can talk to her about anything and she will help, she has always been there for me, as has my dad and they both have my best interests at heart, even if sometimes I can’t see it, I know they are usually right. My sister is awesome too, we used to fight a lot when were younger, but now we talk and hang out, get drunk together and have fun, I can tell my sister things I can’t tell anyone else, and she will always be there for me, as I will for her =)
My friends….. I have the best social group, like that’s not even an exaggeration, when I was going through my break up they were all there for me, even when I was constantly mopey and did nothing but moan or get depressed, they never told me to shut up and they were always giving me advice =) I also love how we rally around each other on deadline days, we keep each other motivated and I know if I run into a problem I can turn to them for help, I’m pretty sure I would have failed a lot of uni work by now if it wasn’t for them, life without them would be very boring, they make me happy and I couldn’t be without them =) it’s funny really, I came to uni with no intentions of making friends, I was here to get my degree and that was it, now here I am 3 years later talking about how amazing they all are! How times and attitudes change =)
My boyfriend….. Well what can I say, he is amazing, he makes me incredibly happy =) I can talk to him about literally anything and I know he won’t laugh at me or judge me, I know I can rely on him for anything, he’s kind, caring and funny and such a gentleman to me =) he’s amazing at cooking, like, he makes the best cumin chicken ever!! He’s there when I need someone to vent to or just to talk in general, I can share secrets with him that I’ve never told anyone and I know he will never break my trust =) we have a laugh together and we have a lot of fun together! I’m a lucky girl to have him in my life =) he’s also pretty damn sexy, in my opinion =P
My extended family….. Well these guys are the best, they make me laugh, our family get togethers are always a ton of fun and my one aunt on my moms side has kept me going many many a time and I am incredibly grateful for her help and just generally for all of them =)
Freedom….. I love my freedom, I love living away from home, not having to answer to anyone, being able to come and go as I please without having someone ring me up to see where I am, I enjoy my 2am walks to ASDA alone with my headphones blaring, I don’t do it often, usually when I find a situation overwhelming, it gives me space, space to think and get things in order before I confront said situation. I enjoy the freedom of being able to get stupidly drunk, knowing that I’m going home to my own house where I can spend the whole of the next day in bed feeling sorry for myself and I especially love the spontaneity that living away from home gives me, I can just invite people over whenever I want, or they can just drop in when they feel like it, cause it’s my house and I don’t need to ask permission!
So yeah, right now my life is pretty awesome I’m enjoying every minute of it, taking each day as it comes and hoping that it just keeps on getting better! I wouldn’t change it for the world!
And hey it’s Friday! That’s something else to be thankful for right cause tomorrow is the weekend!
Hope you guys are all having an awesome day =D
