  2. I loved this!! Thank you for taking the time to embrace and appreciate all the good you have going for you in your life no matter big or small. This inspires me! Sometimes we can let 2 bad things overpower 100 good things we have going! Shows you how important it is to try and keep negativity out as it can take over at times

    Thanks for sharing this

  3. Such a wonderful list you have here. πŸ™‚ It’s always nice to see people who are thankful for all of the good things that they have in their lives. Sometimes life is hard and it can be difficult to remember all the good we have going for us. I’m glad you have so many things that make you feel loved, happy, and lucky.

  4. That is a lovely reminder of the good things in your life. Well done you πŸ™‚ For me, it is that I am still young, that life holds so many possibilities and that I have the most wonderful partner to share it with. I could go on and on. I was in fact thinking about this while I was out for a run in the soft, dappled sunshine in the park today and it made me feel quite so happy xx
