10 Things I'm Grateful for this Christmas

Tuesday, 27 December 2016

Hi guys! Merry Christmas! I hope you all had the most wonderful day and have sufficiently recovered from the food overload....I'm not sure if I have! If I'm completely honest my Christmas wasn't quite as nice as I'd hoped as I had a bit of an anxious day which sometimes happens when I build myself up too much for an event, so I've pulled together this list of all the wonderful things I've got to be grateful of in my life to cheer myself up. I hope you find something here that you can relate to! 

1. I've been lucky enough to travel overseas twice this year, once through a trip we won and the other a trip we already had booked. There's nothing better to widen your horizons and refresh your mind than a trip to a new country!

2. I've never had to go without-I may worry about finances but I've never been in a position to miss out on anything essential and for that I'm eternally grateful.

3. I'm able to study medicine and so far have managed to get through all my exams without any major issues, which I'm sure has more than a little bit of luck involved!

4. My body works perfectly well and I don't have any major health concerns to worry about. I'm capable of both running 5km and eating a large bowl of ice cream and I'm very happy with that!

5. I have a wonderful boyfriend who supports me in everything I do and keeps me strong when I'm feeling the total opposite.

6. My family are also my friends and the people who understand me best, which I feel super lucky about.

7. Cute puppies exist-and dogs in general- especially mine who is the biggest friendliest sook in the world!

8. I live in a safe and peaceful part of the world (aside from the snakes, crocodiles and jellyfish haha).

9. I have the most understanding and dedicated friends who have been by my side through thick and thin, over all the years and struggles that we've been through.

10. I have the potential for so many happy days ahead. At the end of the day all we have is hope, and doesn't that make us all incredibly lucky?

I've loved writing this post, I feel quite Christmas-y and grateful for all the great things in my life. I'd fully recommend sitting down and making your own list if you have the chance!
Wishing you all the most magical end of 2016 and New Year!
