Day 78

100 Days of Gratitude

At the beginning of the year I decided to declutter my little home, choosing to focus on one area each month, so I didn’t get overwhelmed with this task and work through everything a bit at a time.

January was clothes, to sort, declutter and cull the lot. Today I finished this mission, my first of 12 and feeling thankful to get this done before panicking at the end of the month.

Day 72

100 Days of Gratitude

Despite nose-diving mentally yesterday, today I managed to pull up my big girl pants and face the day head on.

I feel that I have turned a corner today and for that I am thankful, I’m still anxious and I feel like I’m riding an emotional roller coaster, which is why it is important to be grateful for good days, like today…

Day 71

100 Days of Gratitude

As I approach Wednesday (the anniversary of my Dad’s death last year) I have been expecting a few dark days to cross my path. I really could do with being at work this week, but the college is closed and I’m keeping myself to myself in my little boat. But it’s so hard sometimes just not to feel overwhelmed by events, smothered by emotions that I have no one to talk to about and generally feeling isolated.

So how do you find space for gratitude when you feel lower than hell?

Well, at the start of the year I began a habit tracker, just to see if it would help… Still unsure yet… But after having a really shitty day, I have still managed to do all the items on my habit tracker and so, I conclude that this in itself is something to be thankful for.

Day 70

100 Days of Gratitude

Ever have one of those days where things just slot nicely into place. Morning chores, an afternoon crafting and a Deliveroo to end the day.

Sometimes it’s the most simple of things which hold the most gratitude and in the mundane I find thanks for a little treat, in the form of a pizza!

Day 69

100 Days of Gratitude

After spending the majority of the day without electricity. I have learnt just how peaceful life can be without all gadgets and distractions around us every day.

Though it might sound like an incredible inconvenience, I actually found myself thankful for a peaceful gadget free day x
