Day 23 – 30 | Gratitude Challenge

This is my last post for the Gratitude Challenge. I said I’d be positive and do it for Lent, and I have!

23. Peace

25. Intention

Sometimes, people do have good intentions but they go about in the wrong way. From a gratitude perspective, I guess it’s good to have someone that cares. However, sometimes, it comes across in a different way.

Laugh. Smile. Hope.

Day 16-18 | Gratitude Challenge

My answers are getting shorter, but I’m still trying to keep it positive!

16. Something that makes you laugh

Bad Lifetime Movies! I have an odd sense of humour. I tend to amuse myself so I guess I’m the something!

17. Something that makes you smile

…hmm. I guess schmoopy, romantic stories. Usually in a this is so cringe but I’m smiling anyway kind of way, but hey, it all counts. Actually good stories make me smile. I like it when you read something and it takes you out of the present and into a rich world of well written characters. 

Is that cliché? Oh, well! Friends make me smile too! Most of the time.

18. Something that fills me with hope

Nothing? Well. People uplifting themselves from misfortune gives me hope. Not the made for internet consumption stories that you see now a day, but the real stories. If one person can turn their life around, we all can.


Texture. Colour. Smells.

Days 12-14 of the gratitude challenge!

12. Texture

What now…okay, so. I’ve got nothing. I like the texture of…

I seriously have nothing. Uhm. Wait. CAKE. I like the texture of cake. Well, I like cake. And therefore, I like the texture of the sponge when it’s baked right. Particularly when it’s soft and light. And fluffy. I think I just described a body sponge but y’all know what I mean. 
I’m immensely grateful for cake. If I’m not married by 35, I’m gonna get hitched to a 33-tier Vanilla sponge. 

Something like this but BIGGER!

13. Smells

Baking. Fresh flowers. Shower gels. I like pretty smells. Simple ones. Our sense of smell is linked to our happiness in a way. We’re not happy when we smell something awful but something that smells great always makes us pause. It’s like a little pocket of happiness. A teeny, weeny one but one all the same! 

14. Colours

Red. Purple. PURPLE. I love green, red, black, blue but purple has my heart. I always buy purple accessories and everything. Everyone knows that purple is my thing. I don’t know. I feel like purple reflects who I am? That’s corny but that’s the only way I can describe it. I feel like I’m slightly better than those people who love pink. Purple is edgier, lol! I kid, I kid. I am grateful for purple because I love looking at it. All shades! 


07. Work

This is Day 7 of my Gratitude Challenge.

Work, work, work….

Well, I’m grateful that I have a job and money that’s my own. Finding a job in this day and age is hard. Finding the motivation is hard. Finding the will to make it through the tedious and at times painful application form is hard. 

So I’m grateful to have something even if it isn’t going to make me a millionaire anytime soon. 

Although, being a millionaire wouldn’t hurt. I’ll stay positive!
