Despite the hardships I’ve faced this year, mainly dealing with my anxiety and a little bit of post natal struggles, I have so much to be thankful for. I really think practising gratitude regularly and taking the time to reflect can be so transforming. It can help shift your mindset because you realise you are already doing so many amazing things in your life and have so much to live for. As someone that has faced depression I know that I have a lot to be thankful for, and I know that on my darkest days this list isn’t easy to remember. But it helps. It helps to know that I have a lot and that there is always an end to each dark patch. It helps to know I will always be back in a place to be thankful.
2019 has given us our first trip to Butlins and Center Parcs, two trips that were incredibly different but have provided us with loving memories.
I am so glad and grateful for Adam passing his driving test first time and being able to buy a family car. We have had many more family trips together because of this and seeing more of the country, getting out for the weekend and doing something new has been so much fun.
I am so grateful for every penny I’ve earned that has helped support my family. Paid for school uniform, kept us warm and hydrated and helped me clear a huge majority of debt.
I am grateful for our children being happy and healthy.
I am grateful for the family I have in my life and all the time we have spent together.
I am grateful for the friendships I have maintained and new ones I have gained.
I am grateful to the blogging community which can be amazing support when you work at home full time and sometimes feel so lonely.
