Life can be extremely troubling, exhausting, and unpredictable. If you’re a highly sensitive person, or simply prone to negative thinking, every unfortunate situation can feel like a stab in your belly. It’s easy to get sad and moody over little things (looking at you, the dress I don’t fit in anymore!!), and it can be even harder to withstand serious problems.
With all this uncertainty and madness going on around lately… I can’t help myself but turn to gratitude as often as I can.
Believe it or not, even when it seems like your life is falling to pieces, there’s still a TON of things to be grateful for.
I created this list to remind you, and myself, of all those things we’re usually taking for granted, and all those little privileges we should be simply grateful for every single day.
Sometimes it’s enough to bring a little bit of sunshine to your storm.
