Today.

I had a really awful day yesterday at work, like seriously one of the worst and most upsetting days I think I have had in a while. I got home and totally flopped on the sofa. I really just felt truly exhausted. As you lovely readers know how positive I try to be on this here little tiny space of internet I just feel these last two days haven't been the best. Today three years ago I lost a good friend who I was at university with, during a flash flood in cornwall, I have never really gotten over the loss of him and today I decided whilst at work I would do something positive and donate my days wages to the RNLI because the emergency team helped in the search for Ryan. I felt like I was doing something a bit more constructive then sitting around feeling sorry for myself. So I guess something positive did come from today, I was able to share a little bit, to help maybe just one person who needs the support of the lifeboats. So after long phone conversations with distant friends I feel that things are getting back to normal, I think we all have those days were you just don't feel yourself so here is to being positive and grateful for what I have. Today I am grateful for my friends and family that always have the time to listen and who love me un-conditionally, I am grateful for my supportive work colleagues, I am truly grateful that my right hand is feeling better so I am able to work, paint and share beautiful things with the world and today I have been grateful for the opportunity to speak to one of my best friends (even though she lives hundreds of miles away)  about all the good memories we all shared at Uni, and our hopes and dreams of the future. I believe it is the small things in this life that make us truly thankful. This little quote from yesterdays link love really made me smile.
What are you grateful for today...?
