100 things I'm thankful for.

The last few months have been pretty hard, and it's like life is throwing as much as possible at me right now to see how much I can take. Seriously though, why does everything always happen at once?? But, I'm trying my absolute hardest to deal with everything, to look on the positive side of things as much as possible, and I know that in another few months, everything will ~hopefully~ have sorted itself out, but I'm just going to have to deal with everything first.

And so, after a particularly tough and emotionally draining few days, I thought I'd make a huge list of everything that I have to be thankful for in a bid to cheer myself up a little!

1. Coffee.
2. Being able to watch the sunrise & sunset over the docks.

What are the things that you're thankful for?



  1. I think thinking of everything you're grateful for is such a fab thing to do - it reminds us of just how many things we have in our lives that we're so grateful for and the list is always huge isn't it :) x

    1. It really does! I think I'm going to start making this a regular thing to remind myself of everything when I'm not feeling that great because it helps so much! x

  2. Lovely post Soph - I am also very grateful for red lipstick... can you imagine life without it?! xxx

    i've also been loving brunch dates recently. and RED VELVET CAKE - oh the MOTHER of the layered cake family. actually there are SO many items on this list that i'm sitting here nodding and mmhmmming to that i'm starting to think we may have been seperated at birth!?

  7. It's important we set aside our worries sometimes just to focus on what's actually going right. It's always much more that what's going wrong and this gives us solace to push harder in life and carry on.


  8. Really lovely post, I think I have to sit and do this one day to remind myself of all the good things about my life rather than always thinking about the negatives, and like you mentioned, it's so easy to forget about something as simple as clean water! xx

  12. I love this. It can be so easy to be consumed with negativity when things aren't great, it is good to focus on the positives!
