When you're having a bad day, I always find it's so therapeutic to take a moment to think about the good things that your life brings you currently or has brought you in the past. I've been having a difficult time lately which I may go into at a later date but for now I'd prefer not to. People in this world are starving and are in horrible circumstances and sometimes it's good to feel lucky to be in the position that we are all in because let's face it, we do take things for granted on a daily basis - things like being able to get into a bed at night, go to a school, drink and cleanse in clean water. Thinking about this has opened my eyes to life outside my own life and life for so many people. Let's be happy for our lives because I feel extremely lucky for mine and when things seem tough and seem like they couldn't get any worse, we need to remind ourselves that they could be so much worse.

1. Clean water for me is definitely something I am so thankful for. I touched upon this in the introduction to this post. However, this is something that I take for granted because having a bath is one of my favourite things to do, followed with a hot brew!

2. The ability to walk strikes to amaze me when I put it into perspective because it's something I don't even think about but also something that so many people in this world are dreaming to do and that makes me so sad

3. Going home to my warm house! Some people are unfortunately not in the posision where they can go home to a bedroom with a properly stabilised bed and full time electricity.

4. My parents are the best. I'm now 19 and I have never been so happy and honoured for how my parents have raised and looked after me. This is a big one for me because it's hard to put into words how lucky I am to have such amazing parents, they have done everything and anything for me if I've needed it. It's easy to argue and say mean things that we obviously don't mean and it's normal whilst going through your teenage years to get frustrated at your parents (believe me, i know!) when they don't let you stop at a friends house or go to that amazing party that everyone's invived to but you understand once you're older, I promise you that they have your best interest

5. My friends are also the best. I'm so happy to have the friends I have and I'm so happy to be surrounded by the people I am. I'm proud to say that I have a strong friendship group and I'm also proud to say that every single friendship I have right now is for life.

6. I'd be lying if I didn't say that Money is also a huge one for me because it is. I'm never been afraid to say that money brings me happiness and also drives me. It's given me amazing opportunities and I'm happy to have it but also I'm so grateful of money and I respect the money I have

7. My blog is something I have built and I have created and I run. It's mine and I'm incredibly proud of myself for one, keeping to it and two, for how much it's grown because I didn't think I'd be in the position I am right now with my blog in FOREVER, it's surreal

8. My health and doctors are everything to me and my family. I'm so happy with everyone that I've put trust in with my health. I have had quite a few surgeries and procedures in my life time and if I had been born thousands and hundreds of years ago then that care unfortunately wouldn't be accessible to me and I'm so grateful for the care I've had



For me, getting someone a gift that doesn't just look luxurious but something that is actually so practical is the way to go and I hav...
