Thankful Thursdays #16

Hey everyone! I cannot believe that I have been writing Thankful Thursdays for the past four months, now. It is crazy for how fast time is flying by.

Every week I spend time reflecting on what I am thankful for. Feel free to partake in the comments, if you like.

  1. Since it was our Thanksgiving weekend, my boyfriend was off on Monday, so we had an extra day to relax together. That is always fun!
  2. My boyfriend also bought me a new mop, it works a lot better than our other mop.
  3. Yesterday my boyfriend and I tried a new ice cream flavour we haven’t tried before. We tied a peach flavoured ice cream. It was so good.
  4. Having a midnight snack with my boyfriend this morning. That was a lot of fun.
  5. Using my local library to put books from To Be Read List on hold. I’m super excited to start going through all of those books.

Hope

I figured this was a great quote for Thanksgiving Monday. I really hope that all of our gratitude that we have had for today and over the weekend, will roll over into the upcoming week. I am big believer of expressing gratitude.

I really like this quote because it provides us with a lot of insight of how you should take things easily, and try your best to reduce your stresses.

Thankful Thursdays #14

It’s another Thursday, which means I talk about the things that I am thankful for.

To be honest, this week seemed to be a bit of a challenge to list the things I am grateful for. I faced many challenges this week, last Thursday I sprained my ankle, and today I learnt that my team, Pittsburgh Steelers won’t be playing during their Sunday game because the team they were originally scheduled to play is dealing with a coronavirus outbreak, and because of this I wouldn’t be able to hang out with my cousin watching some football, to name a few.

  1. Not to sound like I am complaining about what I had wrote, but even though I won’t be able to see my team or my cousin this weekend. I am glad that the NFL is protecting the virus from spreading even more.
  2. My ankle is healing and I am able to put weight on it.
  3. I have received another container of my belongings so I can start sorting through my stuff and be able to live with less stuff.
  4. I had dinner with my boyfriend, my sister, her boyfriend and my niece. That was nice. We also took my niece to the park earlier.
  5. My sleepy tea to help me fall asleep and wash away the day. I have been feeling stressed out as of lately. But I like to think that things will work out eventually. And all of these struggles will all be worthwhile.

World Gratitude Day

Today is World Gratitude Day! Be sure to express to others how much you appreciate them. Always tell people that you love them.

Just because today is World Gratitude Day doesn’t mean you have to wait until next year to express your gratitude. You can journal it, or you can simply express your feelings to yourself and others. Make every day World Gratitude Day!

Thankful Thursdays #11

It’s another week round up, where I talk about the things that made me thankful.

  1. Being able to declutter and purge through my things from my container. It is an amazing feeling. Some of the things that are in these containers are some of the things from childhood. And the rest of the things aren’t useful to me, but can be useful to other people.
  2. It’s Kick Off Night! Thursday Night Football is back. I love NFL, so I am quite excited that it is returning.
  3. Last Friday I got to hang out with my sister and niece, which was a lot of fun. I got to meet my niece’s friend from the playground.
  4. Being able to hang out with my boyfriend at an ice cream parlor, and tried new flavours of ice cream. That was a lot of fun.
  5. And lastly, I am grateful for my mini camping fort in my room. It is so much. It’s just a bunch of blankets laid on the floor. It gives me a new place to read and write my blog.
My niece and my foot. She really liked doing this. She’s so adorable. I love her!

Thankful Thursdays #10

This post is where I write everything I am thankful for in the past week.

  1. I finally was able to donate all of the items I have been getting rid of. I have been placing these items in a reusable bag, and I gave them to my Grandma. My Grandma then passes all of that stuff to her neighbours and her friends. That was a freeing feeling.
  2. I got to hang out with some of my family on Tuesday. We had a lot of fun.
  3. I get to watch hockey and basketball in September! It’s going to be a lot of fun because football will be starting soon.
  4. I love the time I have been setting aside for reading. I have picked a lot of great books.
  5. I love that my succulents (the ones that I have gotten as a birthday present) has been growing a lot.

Thankful Thursdays #8

On Thursday, I had a busy but fun day with family, so that’s why I didn’t post any thing new, but now I am getting all caught up.

I have a lot to thankful for this week.

  1. I saw my niece (on Thursday), we got to hang out for a bit. She’s such a cutie, she’s 17 months old.
  2. I am happy that my boyfriend and I had a fun weekend, we had a little “camp out” in our room, and we watched two movies with snacks.
  3. I am grateful for being nominated for two awards this week. One called The Sunshine Blogger, and the other one was The Liebster Award. It is such a honour to be recognized by fellow bloggers and telling me how much they love my blog.
  4. I am thankful that my Grandparents bought me a cup of tea yesterday. I felt really fortunate to spend time with them, I don’t get to see them that often, so it was a nice treat to see them again.
  5. And finally the last thing I am thankful for is being able to watch all of my favourite sports such as hockey and basketball in the summer.

I would love to hear what you are thankful for this week.

Fighter – Christina Aguilera

I always loved this song a lot. It mentions how even though you are going through a challenging time, you shouldn’t totally disregard from your life, because the fights and challenges you are going through right now, is giving you strength to get by in life. We should thank the tough times we are going through. We can’t have a rainbow without a storm.

It really is a powerful song. It really has helped me be thankful for the struggles and overcome so much. She has written several empowering songs for us, so be sure to stay tuned for another Music Mondays featuring a Christina Aguilera song.

“‘Cause it makes me that much stronger
Makes me work a little bit harder
It makes me that much wiser
So thanks for making me a fighter
Made me learn a little bit faster
Made my skin a little bit thicker
Makes me that much smarter
So thanks for making me a fighter”

-Christina Aguilera, Fighter

Thankful Thursdays #5

I had an eventful week, so there is a lot to thankful for.

  1. I am thankful because I got to hang out with my cousin on Tuesday. We picked up a box of pizza from a local store, and brought it with us to a nearby park for a picnic. It was a joyous time. It was the first time we had hung out in a really long time since we have been in quarantine and social distancing. And I am also hanging out in her backyard at the moment.
  2. I recently just received my tea order, after what seemed like awhile.
  3. In the tea order, I received tea I haven’t even tried yet. I have received a new traveler mug, because it’s in my favourite colour.
  4. I saw my dentist after having my fixed my chipped tooth, from my car accident, eight months ago.
  5. When my cousin was walking me to my bus stop, we saw this beautiful fountain in her neighbourhood.
