60 things to be happy about

Some days, you just have to take a nap and start again. Today well, yesterday for you guys, has been one of those days. everything went wrong and all technology decided it would go on holiday or something and crash and take 10 hours to upload one photo so I thought it'd be a GREAT idea to write a list of 60 things to be happy about/grateful for.

This has actually made me feel SO MUCH better. I feel relieved that I have a post to go live tomorrow or today for you guys, and now I feel I can relax, drink tea, watch films and wake up feeling refreshed/ I have a big to do list for tomorrow and I'm actually so excited to get started hopefully i still feel this way in the morning lol. I think I'm going to try and write down at least 3 things I'm happy about/grateful for a day because writing 60 things to be happy about was just so easy once I got into the swing of it. 

What are you grateful for today?


  1. I love these kinds of posts cause they're always such a great reminder that there are so many little things to be happy about :) Today I'm grateful that I got to spend the day at home just doing my thing x


    1. Aw thank you! Yes I enjoy writing them when I'm feeling sad and ungrateful to make me see that there's so much joy and happiness around me xx

  2. Drinking your tea at that perfect temperature is something to be extremely happy about! I often either burn my tongue or have to reheat my tea. ♥

    1. Yaaaaaaas haha I love it when it just ~slightly~ burns the back of my throat still xx

  3. "Equal eyeliner flicks" – is that a real thing that people are able to achieve?? Haha. I love a good appreciating-the-little-things post. thank you :)
