Five things I am grateful for. Hello everyone, I hope you are well. In today’s post, I will be sharing five things I am thankful for. I want to share this topic because I have seen so much growth and many difference in my personal development over the past couple of years. As you know, I am a single mum of a soon to be five years old princess. And the journey has been challenging yet rewarding.
Five Things I Am Grateful For
Earlier this year, I was almost at the end of my life. I was working part-time, rounding up my Intro level at college, and working on a work placement that was a part of my course. I did all that, as well as being a mum to my daughter. Up until the summer holidays, everything ended. I lost my job; the college was done for the summer holidays, and my placement had ended. It was like I was back to square one of doing nothing in my life. Yes, it was hard to deal with, but I successfully pulled through, and now here I am back in college, working as a blogger and about to start another work placement soon.
For the first time in my life, I have stability. I am in a place in my life where I am in control of my life, and I know where I want to be and where I am going. Part of my new year resolution was to learn how to cook more, get a gym membership, start a lifestyle blog and successfully progress through college. I did everything on the list because I have stability in my life.
Nothing beats the power of peace in your life. When there is peace in your life, you can see things in a clear picture. This year I had peace, and it felt amazing. I also learnt so much about myself and did something I did not know I was capable of. My life has changed dramatically; my mindset and everything surrounding me brought nothing but joy, love and laughter to my life. The feeling was incredible. Peace is everything.
I know I can take all the credit and say I did everything all myself; yes, I did; however, I feel I would not have completed it without the support I had from close ones.
Ever since I became a mother, a family has been my No. Priority. We all have our difficulties with family drama. We fight, love each other, and then fight again; it just goes around in circles, but we are still family. However, you wouldn’t want your child to grow up alone as a single mum. I have never felt as connected as I am with my family. I would love to grow my family one day.
I know it was a short post. However, reflecting on what you have and being grateful for it is always good, rather than worrying about the things you do not have.
I hope you enjoyed that.
This is a great article! As a Family Nurse Practitioner, I encourage this on a daily basis! Anxiety and depression as been on a rise tremendously due to covid and I share with patients to start with writing down two sentences a night for what occurred that day they are thankful for. Makes a HUGE difference!
