Life is good

Thursday, 21 August 2014

There's been a lot of positive vibing on Facebook lately. People listing the things they feel most grateful for. I really enjoy reading them. There's something lovely about people pointing out the things they feel happiest about. Makes a nice change from those who log on once a week just to complain about something. And that's it. Admit it; we all have one FB friend that could compile quite the compendium of moaning FB statuses. 

Pet peeve out the way, I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon and take a minute to think about the things I feel most lucky to have in my life.

An obvious one, but I thank my lucky stars every day that I walked into that tacky American cocktail / burger bar and handed in my CV. Yes, I was working as a waitress in a cocktail bar when I met my husband. Without him, I wouldn't have my three beautiful babies. No matter how much they test me, I remind myself every day how lucky I am to have them all. They are awesome. As are the rest of my family. Group hug!

I tend to look on the bright side of things. Some people tease me about it but, as you might expect, I fail to see how this can be a bad thing ;) I'm grateful that I can take a problem and find the good in it. Most of the time. 

Living by the sea makes me happy. Even in the winter. Nothing chills me out more than a walk on the sand. I've lived in cities and loved it, but the beach has my heart. 

Wine. There I said it. We're big wine fans in this house. Not the kids obvs. Especially as it gets colder, there's nothing cosier than snuggling up with a glass of red, a blanket and a box set. Ah roll on autumn.

What are you most grateful for?
