Weekly Gratitude 2018 21/52 and 22/52


Happy weekend everyone! Hope you’ve been having a lovely weekend so far. Winter has well and truly hit us Down Under but it’s been a lovely day today. I’m not sure if you noticed but there was no weekly gratitude post last week; that’s because I was away on a short holiday. In a way, this is a fortnightly gratitude list as I look back on all the things I’m grateful for from 20th May 2018 till 2nd June 2018.

Wonderful people in my life who validate and reassure my irrational anxieties

Taking on some new clients at work and having good sessions with them

Hitting some personal bests while strength training

Going away on a road trip

Camping a couple of nights on the road trip

Sharing special moments with a certain someone on the road trip – watching the sunrise, sharing wine on the beach by moonlight, waking up to the sound of the waves, trying amazing and not-so-amazing coffees, eating great food, swimming or surfing, listening to good music, going on hikes, go-karting

The opportunity to visit Byron Bay – I so need to go back!

A beautiful card from a friend I’ve had to say goodbye to as she moves to the Northern Territory and the opportunity to spend time with her before she left

Kitty cuddles and doggy snuggles upon returning from the trip

A good professional development course where I learnt a lot but also met a lovely psychologist who I clicked well with

Writing some poetry on the blog again

Watching Deadpool after having a yummy Japanese dinner

There are lots more things I have been grateful for these past two weeks. I notice that relationships and connections are probably what I am most grateful for but also, the opportunity to be alive and experience the beauty of nature. It makes you realise that maybe life doesn’t have to be complicated.

How was your week? 

Do share!

    I have been following your trip on Insta and it was really refreshing for me to look at so I can imagine it must have been for you too.
    Also, love what you say about life not having to be complicated. You are so right there.

    Like others, I have also been enjoying your Instagram feed. Happy that you made those trips. Life indeed is complex but you seem to be doing pretty well of finding the good in everything.
