100 Things I am Grateful For

Everything starts with gratitude. Want a catalyst to feel happier? Practise gratitude for all that you currently already have and the rest will come.

Sharing my list of 100 things I am grateful for right now, to encourage and inspire you to write out your own list and really feel into and connect with the feeling of appreciation.

1. Being able to work from anywhere, literally, ANYWHERE (well, that I can get signal)

2. The genuine support and interest I have received from people about my new venture (I see you, I appreciate you too ya bunch of babes!)

3. The unconditional love I receive from both parents who want the best for me

4. Living in such a fucking breath takingly stunning city as Edinburgh, where it literally has it all. I can deal with the summers not being as hot as a lot of other places, because what it lacks in weather from time to time, it makes up for in pretty much every other area (apart from how we’re governed…)

5. Learning to not be so hard on myself and removing pressures

6. Laughter, loads and loads of laughter

7. Family (no list would ever be complete without)

17. Having a comfy big bed to sleep in for the next 4 weeks! (no offensive couch, will see you soon babe x)

18. The first 21 years of my life that I was blessed to have spent with my loving, caring, kind, generous, funny, cute and all round fucking amazing Granny (miss you so much)

19. The refocus and clarity that the pandemic has given me. Completely appreciate that not everyone has had a pleasant experience in these trying times, but I’m not going to feel guilty for saying that it has been great for me in so many ways. I hope others can find peace and acceptance in the situation we’re in
