Thing's I'm Grateful For #2.

Happy Sunday guys! I've actually made it to number 2. This is an achievement for my blog, like seriously. 

This week has been such a good week for so many reasons, and I'm so happy 2016 seems to have got off to a good start! Here's my look back at a few things I've been happy to have this last week.

I can drive. | My job at the minute involves a lot of travel, and on Monday I was sent to Bangor. Yes, of all places, Bangor. It's just over 80 miles from my flat, and on a Monday morning I was so so happy that I didn't have to climb on three trains just to get there. Thanks little car. You did good.

The gym. | Yes, yes, I know what you're probs thinking. This is just another new years resolution that won't last. BUT my dear pals, I'm determined to keep this up. I've been going to the gym for a while now (albeit on and off at some points), but I get such a buzz off waking up the morning after feeling all achey! And it also makes me feel a lot more confident and great about myself. It kinda also helps that it's only a 3 minute walk away - no excuse!

My friends | Part way through this week I had a bit of a wobble, and to help I wrote this post while I was going through it. In the morning I woke up to some absolutely lovely and supportive messages from some of my friends, and I always feel so so happy and lucky to have the people around me that I do! So thank you.

I took the first step in doing something for me. | I don't think I can explain this one just yet, which may seem a bit cruel, so I'm sorry! But, this week I did something that was scary, exciting, nerve-wracking and incredibly brave, but it's made me so happy! Hopefully I can tell all soon. But you might have to just pray for me in the process. 

What have you been thankful for this week?



  1. I love the positivity in this post! Intrigued by what step you've taken to do something for you -it's amazing that you've taken the plunge and done it whatever it may be! Taking little risks with benefits for you are definitely nerve-wracking sometimes - I totally agree and have done the same recently!

  2. Wait, why isn't coffee on this list?? ;) It's always good to take a step back and think of all the little things you may take for granted, and it's personally something I've been doing a lot over the last week or so - it's nice to read someone else's list! I'm intrigued to learn a little bit more about the last point, and fingers crossed you can reveal all soon. x Rebecca -

  3. I'm glad to hear you had such a good week & I hope the next one will be just as good or even better :) x

  4. This was lovely soph, I don't know what I'd do without my car haha! I wish I had your motivation to go to the gym and workout!

  5. Sounds like a fab week so far!

    I would be spending so much time at the gym if was that close to me! Unfortunately it's costly to get to mine, so I'm trying to start with exercises at home.

  6. Reading this has made me realise I need to be a little more grateful. I'm definitely thankful I can drive, I wouldn't fancy walking to work in the early hours for a good 45 minutes. Thank gosh I passed my test!

  8. I'm so proud of you for that big step you took. Love you to the moon and back Sophie bum xxxxxx

  9. Well done for keeping up with the gym. My gym just closed down for refurbishment which has killed me seeing as my NY resolution was to be more active ... running out in the cold it is for me :( xo
