I'm thankful for...

Hiya! A bit of a thoughtful post for you today...

I recently saw this photo of a list someone had created of everyday things they were thankful for. In a twist though, everything listed would usually be viewed negatively. Although it was probably written for Thanksgiving Day a couple of months ago, I thought it was a nice way to view life, changing how you see the things that threaten to ruin your day and putting into perspective just how privileged we actually are. So here's my little unconventional list on what I'm thankful for...

1. I'm thankful for the essays I had to write over the Christmas holidays because they show I was able to go to university

2. I'm thankful for the ridiculous amount of books I have to read for this term because it means I have the ability to read

3. I'm thankful for my achey leg after going to the gym because it means I have the ability to walk (although a bit uncomfortably at the moment...)

4. I'm thankful for slight Christmas tummy I've developed over the past month because it means I was able to enjoy having yummy food to hand

5. I'm thankful for the cold weather because it reminds me just how warm and cozy my bed is

What are you thankful for?

Love, Beth xxx
