I haven't written a gratitude diary on here in ages, or a blog post to be fair. I have missed it, it makes me happy. It is the best release I have and it helps me to gather my thoughts and send them out into the universe. I have been taking a mental note of what I am grateful for, however, I do think it is much more effective when written up as it really makes you notice what you have to be grateful for. So, now that I have the time in my life to sit down and write one, I jolly well will do! 

My Independence
I am really proud and happy about how independent I am. From travelling alone to doing everything for myself. I don't rely on other people to do stuff with me or for me. I had to grow up quickly due to my Dad's path and I am glad I have. If I want to do something, I will do it and I will make it happen. I can't imagine being one of those people who rely on other people daily and I wouldn't want to be now. I can't imagine not doing something I wanted to do because I didn't have someone to do it with me or for me. I especially can't imagine waiting around to fulfil my dreams just so I can do them with someone else. No thanks. 

Being Single
Okay, so since my Dad died, I have tried dating twice, granted I knew both times that the people were not for me, but I felt I needed to give them a chance. The truth is, I am not ready to meet someone. I am so fixated on my career, my dog, my friends and my own life that the thought of someone coming in to be a part of it makes me feel sick. I love not feeling like I have to see someone, I love not being in constant contact with someone, I love not having to update someone about my day and life, and most of all; I love just doing me with no explanations, divulgence or sharing. I would much rather spend my weekends with Riley, my close family members and my friends. Until I meet someone who I would be proud to introduce to my family and friends, and who I can see a future with, I am going to duck out of the whole dating scene altogether. 

I love the sound of the birds tweeting around in the trees. I love the time I spend with my Riles, and my friends and family in nature. I went for a walk with my sister, her husband and my little nephew the other day and it was just so lovely. A different day I went into the country with my bestie and another day I went into the hills with my family. I love being close to water and I have been really missing it lately so that needs to change. I love being in the woods and close to beautiful trees. I love being in the peacefulness of nature too, away from the chaos. I love the sun, the wind, all of the elements and everything nature has to offer. Honestly, I need to go out and be in it even more often than I already do. 

My Career
Okay, so my career consists of studying to be an SLT (Speech and language therapist), teaching English as a second language, teaching Spanish as a second language, translating and interpreting. I love my teaching, especially when I create a lesson plan that I feel pure excited about delivering and see the students enjoying it too. I love working with teenagers, the elderly and the little ones too, I just love humans. I love how diverse and interesting my career paths are. I love that they are finally combining now and that I am on en route to where I want to be with it all. 

New Adventures
Life is all about new experiences for me. I love changing things up, learning new things, trying things I haven't tried before and most importantly, making new memories. I met someone in a pub the other day and him and his friends play a game called 'the train game' where they just jump on the first train in a station and go to wherever it takes them. He said he had played it in Cyprus, Canada and here in the UK and also played it with planes. Honestly, the man is a guy after my own heart, seriously, that kind of spontaneity and adventure is exactly what I love to embrace. I went on a hot balloon for the other day and it gave me a completely new lease for life. I am a creature of change, not habit and I embrace the new with everything I have.

Peace Out Potatoes! xo
