It’s Day 156 of 2017 and here are seven things I’m grateful for:
We get two seasons in my part of the world: Dry Season and the Rainy Season. And it is pouring over Trinidad today. I am so grateful for and just really love rainy days, they are the perfect excuse for extra snuggles under warm covers and plenty cuddles. Somehow, even if the rest of the day is cold and wet, you cannot help but think it’s a great day. Like the true pluviophile that I am, rainy season is my absolute favourite time of the year.
Toddlers One toddler in particular
Baby S is no longer a baby baby. He is already 16-months old and is walking, touching everything and baby-talking up a storm. We are into the toddler stage and I am loving it. He is always singing to himself, such a happy child. Yes I am that aunty and I won’t have it any other way.
Growing Green Things
You guys I now have eight! house plants. I cannot believe it. After seriously doubting my ability to keep green things alive…I am now the proud plant mama of 8.
After God and my mother, they are the ones who know the real me. And I am so grateful that to this day we are still close. I am blessed with a sister and a brother (both younger than I am) and I couldn’t be more grateful.
Brunch with friends
If you didn’t have a mimosa, did you even brunch? Every other weekend we meet for some sips and chat and those meet-ups really make my world go round. I have surrounded myself with people who reflect my light and who are able to shine their own light when I am being pulled into the darkness. I will be forever grateful for these wonderful people who have allowed me to be part of their journey here on earth.
I’m Grateful For Coffee
A special shout-out to the bean juice that makes all this possible. I would not achieve half the things I do without it. Cheers!
My favourite shows are coming back in June
From Orphan Black to Orange Is The New Black … some of my favourite shows are coming back this month. And I don’t know about you, but I am really looking forward to binge-watching em all. Friday nights are gonna be soooo lit – well my scented candles at least!
So that’s my seven for this week. On Mondays, “we post seven positives from the previous seven days of the week as a reminder of what we have so that the week starts out on an upswing. There is much truth in the belief that happy people attract good things, so it is important to start the week out right. Sometimes it’s the more grand, but other times, it’s the simple things.” 7 for Seven originated at Key + Arrow.
I hope that by continuing to pay attention to the little things, the mundane details that make up all the blessings in my life and by sowing the seeds of faith and gratitude, I can truly carry with me and reap the rewards of “positivity + balance + bliss” throughout the days ahead.
Thank you for reading, I appreciate you! This is me blowing some glitter and confetti on you because you’re super blessed to have received the gift of another 86,400 seconds today, to spend any way you desire.
Make those seconds count!
I love hearing from you…what are you grateful today?Feel free to share below!
