Reasons to be happy

In 4 days it will be the anniversary of something awful, something I don’t really want to think or talk about. So I’m writing a list of things that I’m happy about and maybe that’ll help a little bit. Sorry, this isn’t the most though provoking or inspirational post but maybe it’ll encourage those of you who are having a tough time to do the same. Focus on the good things instead of the bad πŸ™‚

  1. I passed my driving theory test today, woo! But they must have thought I looked dodgy because she made me empty all my pockets,Β take off my jacket and show her my arms, and then I had to hand over my glasses to prove I didn’t have anything attached to them. If someone has cheated using their glasses they are a genius and should definitely be working for the government right now.
  2. I only have a month left of college, and thank God because I don’t know if I could write another essay evaluating the criminal justice system.
  3. I start University in September and I am ridiculously excited.
  4. I have a scholarship to University so I don’t have to work two jobs anymore! No more customers throwing food at me, or getting hit on by weirdo’s double my age, and I don’t have to smile at people when I really just want to throw fortune cookies at them.
  5. My boyfriend got an offer for University and I couldn’t be prouder of him πŸ™‚
  6. The boy I tutor said I was a good teacher, and that he will miss me when I can’t tutor him anymore. (Awww)
  7. My brother is gaining weight and is training towards his black belt in Karate.
  8. I have lost 1.5 stone in the past year by running and eating healthy (ish) and I have curves!
  9. My boyfriend is so much happier now and he’s getting the help he needs.
  10. I haven’t had a panic attack for a week, yay!

Well, I think that’s a pretty good list!

Sometimes it’s so difficult to stay positive but I’m trying hard and, if anyone’s reading this, I hope you have a good day x

  2. I’m totally a believer in writing a list of things that make you happy! I might actually do that – my mom is always trying to encourage me to be more positive and make a list of things to be thankful for! Great post. Also I noticed you’ve mentioned uni in a few of your posts – which one are you hoping to go to if you don’t mind my asking? I know some people would rather be private though so don’t worry if you’d rather not say I’m just curious/nosy haha!! Xo
