Well, OMG where have I been!? So, yeah, life got in the way and I sadly, didn’t continue my 365 days of gratitude…
I am still gratuitous of many things but quickly learnt that it’s a lot harder than it looks doing that whole 365 days of ANYTHING, let alone 365 days of gratitude.
I am however happy to say that dispite many “life things” that are happening in our life at present, I am very happy and I am coping better everyday!
I’m hoping to rekindle some of my more creative side at present so, will see how long that lasts, but I am slowly learning that it’s OK to start and stop things in your life. I’m not a failure, but I am an explorer.
Discovering new and different things and avenues each and everyday. At some stage I may use what I’ve learnt and be able to inspire others and my children to just love to learn, even if it seems “impractical” at the time.
Much love to you all and long time no write ❤
Today I’m grateful for simple family moments. Something as simple as a small fire, some sparklers, and a game of tag.
These moments are what life is all about. Watching the kids run around and have fun. I remember the days as a kid where we would stay up so late running around playing hide and seek or tiggy or just having fun at night without a care in the world.
I’m so glad that our kids too have the opportunity to do these simple things. I notice too that they enjoy themselves so much more when they do these things. They beg for more time playing and squeal and laugh and just be kids.
I’m grateful for these moments because it takes them away from the technology and just let’s them live raw wholesome real life.
Never underestimate how meaningful all these things are for kids.
Today I am grateful for my bed. Who doesn’t love their bed? It’s my sanctuary, my comfy place, my escape.
It welcomes me at night and pleads with me to stay in the morning. It soothes my aching body after a long day and keeps me warm on those cold nights.
I am also grateful for the privilege of having a bed to sleep in. So many people don’t have this luxury and it makes me sad to think they don’t have the opportunity to experience these feelings.
So I really take a step back to appreciate what I have at this time, and though I may not have expensive luxurious items, I still have a bed to sleep in. And I am grateful..
P.S that’s obviously not my real bed but I can dream right!? 😜
Today it’s the good ol’ library! I’m so grateful for this place, because it’s literally free education!
It has a plethora of subjects, information and even multimedia for you to explore.
And they are so good with doing free events for children, also different educational seminars for adults which are either free or just a small fee!
Not to mention the people you can meet. I met a lady today with a vegan recipe book,
who I asked her where she got it and we got to talking about different things and I learnt about some new sites to buy great books from and some new plant based diet bloggers to have a lookie at.
When was the last time you utilised your local library?
Today I am grateful for all the vegan women out there who are sharing their stories and inspiring others to obtain optimum health and are giving this information freely.
I get so inspired by watching these proactive women and it gives me motivation to get up and keep moving, to make positive changes in my life and to slowly incorporate new techniques in my life.
Some of these amazing women are:
They have all had different journeys and are kind enough to share their struggles and how they overcame these with simple diet changes.
I am truly grateful for these women and their passion to inspire
It’s officially been a week that I have been doing my 365 days of gratitude.
And I must say I have noticed myself being a lot calmer, even in my moments of irritation, and being able to continue on with day to day things rather than just sitting in the corner feeling highly overwhelmed.
So today I am grateful for being self aware. Being able to self analyze and takes notes on it. And to notice small changes and to encourage myself to be better. I am intrigued to see where I will be in a months time of doing this and then a years time and how far I will have come.
Much love ❤
I thought I should write a little disclaimer at the beginning as I’ve realised that people who aren’t following me won’t know what I’m doing so…
I am doing a 365 days of gratitude, in the hopes of training myself to have a more positive view on life and to become more naturally proactive and optimistic in everything I do.
So today I am grateful for my husband. No man or woman is perfect in any relationship but my husband is so hard working and try so diligently to be loving even though he is in pain both emotionally and physically.
He fights to the bitter end and never gives up, and though he believes it’s just something he should do he always maintains a light-heartedness about him.
I am grateful to the love and care he has for my children who, though they aren’t physically his own, he cares for them as his own. He is an amazing husband and Dad.
And I am grateful to have been his choice for a wife.
