5 things that I am thankful in life for.


In this time and age, there are things that we really take for granted. Rewind back to a few years and we would not have even imagined living the life we are right now.
Most of the days pass in such haze that we don't even realise what is happening around us. Some days, I just really want to step down and take the things in and reflect. Today was such a day. There are so many things that I am seriously thankful for. And without certain things, I wouldn't even be half the person I am right now.

1. Family.


As cliched as it sounds but family is what I am absolutely thankful for. Had it not been for my family, there is no way I would've been the person I am today. Their support, their fights, their encouragement and their sarcastic attitude, it all has helped me shape up as a person.  My parents, my siblings, my husband and my son is all I have right now and there is nothing I am more thankful in my life than them.

2. Sundays.


My husband works 6 days a week. And usually till late night. It is definitely hard to cope up when sometimes you just need to camp up with some in the living room and watch a cheesy movie. Or just someone adult around to talk to. But I have to keep reminding myself that he is only doing it for us. For our little family. For our future. He is not doing it for himself. But for us. So, Sundays are the only days off and we absolutely make the most of it. He makes sure that his phone is on silent and that he is giving the utmost attention to us. Sunday breakfast is usually my favourite time of the day. All three of us are huddled around the table and just generally having a good time.

3. Jillian Michaels.


Lets face it. Without her, I wouldn't have half loved my body as much as I do today. I mean it seriously. Before I had my little man, I was always skinny. No amount of food would transfer as fat and now I am 2 stones heavy. So I am thankful for Jillian because without her support and without her constantly motivating 'if you think you are going to die, follow Anita' I wouldn't have lost the weight I piled on.

4. Prayer.


Prayer heals. Whether you are sitting down, stuck during a busy work rush, or just doing school runs, you are always hanging by a prayer. It does not even have to be formal. Just a casual, 'God, please make this happen and I will be so happy' and there you are. Your prayers are getting accepted and you are just casually walking down, smiling, knowing that you are happy from within.

5. My blog.

Another cliche, but I am truly and deeply thankful for my blog. It has given me a new insight in life and it has given me some motivation to do something with my life finally. I am not that slob anymore, sitting on the couch, in front of the television and wondering where the day went and what should i do. I don't suffer the usual bouts of depression anymore because I look forward to the day. It is slow, but definitely something that keeps me going.

I am truly blessed, thank the Lord.
