I'm Thankful.




As I put a giveaway up on the first of the month and no monthly favourites I thought I would explain why. I have been on bed rest for most of the month and been planning the #LPPevent, I haven't really had any favourites this month. So instead, I thought I would just give you all a little personal life update instead. 


thankful
ˈθaŋkfʊl,-f(ə)l/Submit
adjective 
pleased and relieved.



I'm back at the point in my life where I feel like nothing makes sense anymore. I want so many things to happen right now in my life and deep down I know a lot of them aren't going to happen anytime soon. 

I want to get my health better. I've been on bed rest for basically all of July and I want to get my health at a good point where I am at least not running out of spoons every single day. But - I am so thankful that my health isn't at it's worst it's ever been. 

I want to move home. The house I am living in right now really isn't suitable for my health, and even though I've filled all the forms in and all the they have all been processed for a new home - I really don't feel like it's going to happen anytime soon. But - I'm so thankful that I have a roof over my head, a couple of months ago when our landlord decided to sell his home and kick us out, we didn't even know if we would have a roof over our head or if we would be living on the streets. 

I want to reach 2,500 followers on twitter. Sounds like a really silly thing to some people but actually to be, I think it's a big thing. I don't just want to be followed by random twitter accounts to get me there though. I want people to actually follow me because they like my blog or they think I am interesting. Not just for the sake of followers. But - I am so thankful that I have over 2,000 people following me on twitter. It's such an amazing number of people and I love each and everyone of them. I love that they took the time out of their lives to follow me on my social media. 

I want to finally have my honeymoon with my husband. We got married in 2014 and still haven't been able to have our honeymoon - we haven't had the time or the money. I don't want a big fancy holiday in the Bahamas, a small weekend away in Wales would do us just fine for us. It sucks, but I hope one day we will have one. But - I am so thankful that we were able to get married.


I'm not saying I am at the lowest point in my life but I know I'm not at my height-est. I'm fed up of over analysing situations because I'm scared of what will happen if I'm not prepared for it. But I am changing and I think in my eyes now, the secret to happiness is letting every situation be what it is, instead of what you think it should be. Someday it's all going to make sense so until then I think it's best to just go with the flow. I want to be the change I wish to see in the world. So for now, I'm doing what makes my soul happy and when something goes wrong in my life right now, I'm just telling myself that it's a plot twist and I'm moving on. 

I'm thankful for my life and everyone in it.


With love, 
Alisha Valerie. x
