Reasons To Be Thankful

 I've had a short and spontaneous break away from blogging after thoroughly enjoying blogtober (well, blogtober until day 26), and it has done me wonders. I have missed blogging though, and missed reading blogs even more - I love reading them, especially in the mornings before work. It helps me to start the day off in a good mood, knowing I have already had some time to myself.

Blogtober was a fantastic experience, and although I didn't complete it fully - posting 26 out of 31 days is still a good achievement I think. I did really enjoy it, and admire people who blog everday so much - it was definitely a good challenge for me! My own schedule is usually Monday, Wednesday and Friday but I have decided to switch it about slightly. I will now be posting every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, just for a change!

During my random hiatus, I have been feel incredibly lucky. My gorgeous drives in the work are full of positive and happy thoughts. For me, there are plenty of reasons to be thankful, and recently I've been feeling incredibly lucky and positive about things in general. Writing them all down will remind me when I have moments of feeling exhausted and a bit low. 

  • I have a wonderful boyfriend, who I now live with, which is going fabulously. It's lovely to always come home to Dan, and be able to just relax, and offload to someone, when we need to. I love snuggling up in the evenings and just being completely chilled out with him.
  • My family are incredible. I have grown up within a family who provide ever-lasting support, and I am lucky enough to have been close to my grandparents throughout my lifetime. I feel grateful to have such a wonderfully caring family, which now also includes Dan.
  • My friends. I am lucky to have friends from when I was in year 8 still, and newer friends too. Seeing friends is amazing, and really helps with the work-life balance. I always feel so much better if I've seen a friend, and had a good catch up.
  • I really like my job. I was worried about getting a job after uni - what if I didn't? What if I hated it? But, I landed a job within 2 months in roughly the area I wanted to be working in (admin) and I'm loving it. It doesn't stress me out anymore, because I know what I am doing, and this is the main thing for me. I feel thankful that I have a job, and a job that I am enjoying as well.
  • The place I live is gorgeous. We have countryside literally outside our doorstep, and I feel grateful that I've properly been able to see the change in the seasons this year, rather than living in a town or city. My drives to and from work can be truly stunning!

I feel so thankful, and lucky, to be feeling so good at the moment. I am tired, understandably - going from being a student to working 42.5 hours a week is tough - but I am really enjoying it, and finding happiness in the people I am surrounded by. It's nice to be back blogging too, of course.

What reasons do you have to be thankful at the moment?
