In today’s world it is easy to let things get on top of us and to focus more on the negatives we feel are in our life rather than the positives no matter how small they are. I wanted to get back to these and decided it would be good to make myself think of things I have in my life to be thankful for. I’m a firm believer in the power of postive thought and I hope that by focusing on this it will help me get through the difficult parts of my life.

Today I am thankful for:

My amazing husband, he is there for me no matter what through the ups and the downs. I am so pleased to have him in my life even when we are irritating each other we know we always have each other to rely on.

My family, they know how to keep me grounded, never let me allow things to get me down for too long and understand me totally.

My friends and my online friends in particular. I have never hidden the fact that I find my bunch of online friends to be the most supportive ever and I am very thankful that I found them! I am really looking forward to hopefully meeting up with a lot of them in March which will be so nice.

My doggy, he gives me so much joy and can make me smile even when I am having a really rubbish day. He is also really helping in my goal of losing weight as I need to get out and walk him and once you are out sure you may as well just go that little bit further.

My job, some days I have to admit that I am not thankful for this, it can be quite a thankless line of work that I am in but then I make myself think about it and I am very priveleged to get to be part of people’s lives to help them when they need it the most and this is something to be thankful for.

My home, I love where we live. We have great neighbours, are quite close to town but have loads of really nice walks around us that make you think we are not in town and are really close to both big cities in Scotland. That and the fact I love my wee house and feel very safe and settled there.

I have a good life, yes it has it’s ups and downs and at the minute it’s more challenging than I like it would it to be with the whole trying to conceive thing but overall it’s good. I have no dramas, a husband, friends and family who love me and am feeling settled and secure.

I have lots to be thankful for.
