I'll tell you what it is, on my mind..

Tuesday, 26 July 2011


I'm so happy to have a loving family that love and care for me. I'm happy to have a select few friends who encourage me, and who are real enough to tell me how it is, but with my best interests at heart.
I'm happy to be of good health. I'm happy I have the opportunity to get a good education. I'm happy that I have Love. I'm happy that I have God.

I'm overwhelmed with the love and support that come from the people that read this blog and follow my other networks. Thanks for sharing my journey with me. :)

Just felt like I needed to count my blessings, as often, too much time is spent worrying, and it only takes a moment to remember that there are still good things in my life. xo

Rachel said...

Such a nice post lovely. Cheered me up looking at it. I've had one of those periods when you just spent too long worrying over everything instead of just living and enjoying life.

Gonna take a little time out to remember all the wonderful things in my life. No point in trying to predict the future when it's so variable anyway!

Looking through some of your back posts and think I shall be using your posts as a pick me up when I'm down :)
