5 Things That I am Grateful For

Over the last few years, I have really come to realise and appreciate all the good things in my life. I try and not moan about menial things as their are people out there suffering and in comparison, my little blips don’t compare. I thought I would share some things that make me happy in my life.

  1. I am always very grateful for the fact that I have been blessed with my children. Yes all 6 of them. I became a mum at 23, young by some standards and my children have made me grow so much as a person. I don’t think I would be as grounded as I am today if it wasn’t for them
  2. I met my husband 10 years ago now and I can say easily that he makes me whole. We have a very understanding marriage and rarely argue, we just gel and fit together like a jigsaw so we know when to give the other space and it definitely allows us to remain as happy and content as we are today.
  3.  Creating balance for me is very important. This is exactly why I created my blogs. I missed work and being creative so decided in October 2016 to start my first blog. Since then I have expanded my collection and it made me feel more like myself again. I have my own little world to create and hopefully inspire others.
  4. Since hitting 40 in September 2016 I have become more aware of taking care of myself. Before having the children I was blessed with being uber slim, in my quest to recreate the skinny I have embarked on a healthy eating and living lifestyle. I feel so much better for eating well and including fitness into my life on a weekly basis. Nothing makes me happier than having a fabulous workout in the gym or at home. It’s a buzz like no other and every day I am extremely grateful for my health.
  5. Being able to be flexible and explore is something I have always done even as a child, we were always away on amazing holidays with my parents. I want my children to experience the same and create some fabulous memories together as a family. We do try and go away every year and there is nothing more pleasing that hearing your children relive their holiday a few years later. Hopefully these memories that we have created will remain with them into their adult lives.

I hope you have enjoyed a small snippet into what makes me happy. What makes you smile?

    This is such a lovely post and I am still confused as to why people judge someone else about the age they have children x

    This is such a nice post, it’s always good to appreciate what we have. It’s nice to wish for things, however appreciating what we have and it’s value is more real. I am so inspired to hear you have six children and happy. Children are a God send and they make life more interesting and happy.

    I’m so used to seeing posts where people share their negative thoughts that this made a lovely change 🙂

    5 things I am grateful for are …

    -My two beautiful children. Even if Oscar does keep me up all night at 3 years old!
    -Having a job where I’m my own boss.
    -The Easter Holidays! We finally get to spend a fortnight together as a family.
    -Sunshine! It’s been so lovely where I live this past couple of weeks and seeing the sun makes me super happy.
    -The blogging Community. Everyone in it is awesome and I’m SO glad I get you talk to you all every day.
