Mama Life || November Gratitude

Sometimes you have to just sit back and think of all the positives. It's so easy to focus on the negatives so at times like now where I'm a little on the fence of struggling again, I need to refocus on the things I should be grateful for and not let the bad thoughts win. Although I'm in a good place at the moment, I haven't felt great this week so I though it was high time I had a think about all the great things in my life. Here's my gratitude list for right now in November;

My babies are happy, healthy and here.

I'm making money from home and not having to work nights and weekends any more.

I'm enjoying illustrating and starting my children's book work again.

I do have lots of great people around me.

I have a lovely husband that's also a great dad.

We have a lovely new kitchen, even if there is now damp that needs fixing (arghhhh).

I'm feeling healthier again and I've lost some weight.

I'm more in control of my back problem.

I'm excited for Christmas and so happy we don't have to travel this year.

I'm going to try and do this more now, at least monthly. I used to do a weekly gratitude list but needless to say it soon slowed down and I found it very hard some weeks when things were particularly crappy.

What are you thankful for this month?
