52 Lists // Seventeen

To name but a few. 

I think I could probably fill pages and pages of my notebook with things I am grateful for. Indeed perhaps that is what I shall do from here on in. I'm always inspired to look to the things that I am thankful for, having seen the wonderful Leona and Lisette set such moving examples. 

Feeling thankful, recognising the value of what you are surrounded by, can be a healing process. Being in a muddled state and then making a list like this firmly plonks my feet back on the ground, reminding me that actually whatever troubles or heartbreak might consume my mind the majority of the time, I should expend more energy focussing on the hundreds of things I am incredibly lucky to be able to feel, see, use and experience. 

Do you think gratitude has a role to play in feeling happy?


This is list #17 in the 52 Lists project, run by Emma over at Made in Hunters. Feel free to leave me your 52 Lists link below

  1. One day I would like to be as insightful as you are. x

  2. Darling girl, this is so beautiful. And I could quite happily, and will in fact, say I'm thankful for you and your friendship.

    Oh, and I love how you mentioned opportunities :) xxx

  3. These are some lovely this to be grateful for. I feel like we forget how fortunate we are sometimes. I cheated a little and only did one thing for this weeks post and not the huge list I cold have done.

  4. I've been loving your lists - your perfect weekend to do list is spookily similar to mine, I have been trying to tick several of them off this weekend, brunch, tea, duvets and books have definitely happened! :) I love this list too, I try and reflect on the things I'm grateful for as often as possible. Having good health and supportive and loving family and friends is something that so many people take for granted. xo
