A personal post: on gratitude

Pink rose at Sedona - Darling Lovely Life blog - A personal post: on gratitude

I have to admit, gratitude isn’t something I’ve been very good at in my life. I spent a large portion of my life being a glass half empty type, someone who always looked for problems instead of blessings.

Lately, that’s started to change for me. I’ve begun to really see the amazing things that life has to offer. Every day I’m alive and healthy is a blessing, I have a beautiful and secure home, a happy and fulfilling relationship, a stimulating and exciting career, wonderful creative hobbies, a close-knit and supportive family and some of the best friends anyone could hope for.

All in all I’m pretty blessed.

So it’s a short and sweet one today, just to say that my life isn’t perfect, but it feels pretty magical when I choose to shine a light on the parts of it that really sparkle, instead of putting a magnifying glass over the bits that aren’t so great.

So, on this beautiful day to be alive, what are you Darling Lovelies the most grateful for?

    What a lovely post. We have had a terrible week and I have definitely been focusing on that hugely. So on this day I am thankful for two gorgeous children, a loving husband and a beautiful house. Life is pretty amazing really x

      So sorry to hear it’s been a rough week! So good to remind yourself that it’s not always as bad as it feels <3 xxx

    Great post! :) I’ve had some ups and downs lately too, so I’m grateful for my friends and family for sticking with me through them, and for the ability to maintain a sense of humour when unpleasant things start hitting the fan.
