Happy Thanksgiving! As i’m British it’s not something we really celebrate in this country, but I do love watching American films and programs where they celebrate it, it always looks like Christmas with the amount of food they have and the celebrations. I kinda do wish we did actually celebrate it here in the UK. In honour, I am going to cook myself a turkey dinner for my boyfriend and I to celebrate. I also thought it would be a good blog post idea to share with you everything i’m thankful for.
My Parents. They are absolutely everything to me. They have raised me in way I will raise my own children, they have taught me everything i’ll need to know and they have supported me through endless things and absolutely everything I’ve wanted to do. I will always be thankful for the love, support and attention my family give to me and I know the amount I give back will never be enough to say thank you.
My Sister. We argue and fight for Wales sometimes, but being sisters and being so alike is what makes us clash. Its also what makes us so close. She always supports me, always tells me when I come up with a ridiculous ideas, always tells me if I look stupid and is always there for me. I love that I have someone i’m so close to that I can tell her everything and anything, I love having someone to look after and protect and I love how much of the same wave length we are on. She is one of my biggest inspirations and I am very thankful for her being in my life.
Welsh Friends. It’s hard to find people you can connect with, trust and who remain loyal behind your back. I am lucky I have a hand full of friends that I can honestly say are all those things. It takes a while as we grow up to realise that the less friends can sometimes mean the better and i’m glad I’ve matured enough to except that, as my friends are honestly the best. It was a hard decision last year, to move four hours away to a different country let alone a different city but we’ve all made it work. They’re always there when I need them and when we plan to meet, its always more exciting and more special. I’m so happy and thankful that we have remained in each others lives, despite the difference.
English Friends. It has been really tough moving away from my friends and it has been much harder than I thought to make new friends in London, but over the past few months I have definitely met some amazing people who will remain in my life forever. It’s crazy how you can only know someone for a few months and feel like you’ve been best friends for years. I’ll always be forever grateful for making me feel so welcome and inviting me out all the time.
My boyfriend. He is always pushing me out of my comfort zone and getting me to do things I wouldn’t normally do, like moving to London. He always supports me in everything I do and makes me realise I deserve the very best in life. He’s always there whenever and I need him and I’ll always be forever grateful for him.
My Health. I know this is a cliche, but my health is definitely something I’m very thankful for. I might not be in great shape and I might eat too much than I should, but I’m thankful I get to wake up every day and live a normal life.
