I’ve been struggling rather monumentally with life this week. I’ve found that such times are the best ones to find gratitude wherever and whenever you can, so this week’s list is a little different to the normal lists I produce. I’m memorising – be kind, be thankful, take it slowly, smile, breathe, get on with it, be happy.
Things I Love Thursday is an idea created by the inimitable Gala Darling. In 2007 she began creating a list every Thursday, sharing links, people and experiences that she had fallen in love with that week. All over the internet people the idea was passed around: everyone loved the concept of celebrating appreciation and thankfulness together and began creating their own lists… This is mine!
