1.  Seriously, I’m glad I wake up everyday with my children. 

2.  I’m so glad that I got a FREE, large coffee at Coffee Bean this morning.

3.  I’m happy to have a thoughtful fiance that prepped the diaper bag this morning (the little gestures add up)

4.  I’m so happy I have a job.  Seriously.

5.  I’m happy I can live with myself (there’s a backstory to this about a friend and her life choices that made me realize that I can and is proud to be myself).

1) My health, I was in a serious car accident a few years ago and even though I have medical complications, I survived when doctors thought I wouldn’t make it. The NHS may get slated sometimes, but they looked after me then, and still do to this day.

2) My Fiance, he’s my rock and can calm me down when I have a panic (I tend to worry about things that COULD happen in the future) he’s supportive and just always knows what to say and do. And I love the little thoughtful things he does which to someone else wouldn’t mean anything.

3) The opportunity to be living in a foreign country whilst working and experiencing new cultures and travel. I may miss home heaps, and want to move back one day, but I appreciate how lucky we are to be here.

4) I have lost 7.5kg – its been hard work, but I am proud to have stuck to my regime and the results are paying off.

5) I am going home in 3 weeks for my best friends wedding and I cant wait to see all my friends and family after 15 months away 😀

6) Pic n Mix sweets – just because they are the best and I am thankful I have learnt to enjoy them as a treat not a staple in my diet!

1. I just got offered two jobs that I get to choose between after a bit of a tumultuous time for me in my life! They’re both full time and will carry me through until I can return to uni and probably through uni too!!

2. We’re going to see jurassic world tonight in gold class for FFILs birthday and due to number one I’m no longer worried about the expensive food and am looking forward to a couple of cocktails. 

3. My fiancé is happy and healthy. He’s had a lot of health and emotional issues over the years and has been doing so well lately in all aspects of his life!

4. For that matter, I am happy and healthy! It might be slower than I like bup I have lost 5kg so far bringing me closer to my goal and I’m starting to be able to walk normally again after my recent knee operation.

1.) That I have a job right now, even if I hate it. I can’t be picky, and it’s better then most Senior students in my position.

2.) That, even though S.O and I are currently long distance (he’s in a different state this summer for an amazing internship) that we are growing stronger as a couple because of the distance, and our communication is much improving.

3.) That I have S.O-he is amazing, and just knowing he’s mine puts a smile on my face every morning.

4.) That my family is healthy, and I get to fly out and see them in a handful of weeks!

5.) That I have an internship at a great company. I may not be learning anything or doing anything, but at least I have one!
