When I first planned today`s post, I was going to talk about my A/W makeup routine. But the weather was bad, the lighting was terrible and there was no way of taking a decent photo of my face. I got a bit pissed and went into drama-queen mode until I realised how childish I was. Was I going to let a minor thing like that ruin my day? Of course, if you are serious about blogging, bad lighting means bad pictures and that`s unprofessional. But us bloggers are creative people, able to reinvent! Rather than venting, why not come with another post? So instead of focusing on the negative, why not talk about the positive things in your life? Thus a new post emerged!
I won`t lie, this was a shitty year for me! I had medical problems, stress at work, problems in the new house. However, despite that, I like to think that I am a lucky person. I have a loving husband and caring friends. I have a good job, even though it can get a bit stressful. I have a roof over my head, food and everything I need. Even my health problems seem minor compared to others. Truth be told, be live in a messed up world, plagued by wars, famine, poverty and disease. And I don`t want to make anyone feel bad, I just want you to realise how lucky we are to have the lives that we have.
Rather than focusing on the things that we don`t have, let`s take a minute to count our blessings. You might not have the latest iPhone, so what? As long as you can call, tweet and post selfies, your phone is just fine. What if you can`t afford a Chanel bag? There are so many cheap alternatives. I could go on and give you more examples, but you get my point. With hard work, you`ll probably get what you want, so appreciate what you have and what comes next.
Below I have made a list of everything I am grateful for. I tried to include the most important ones, otherwise, it would have taken forever. I hope this will inspire you all, so take a moment to breathe and realise how blessed you are. Live in the moment, but also be hopeful for tomorrow.
What I am grateful for:
- My husband
- My Aunt
- My niece
- My Friends
