what are you grateful for..

i was supposed to publish an emo post regarding why i have been absent over the week, but i restrained myself and just figured that instead of focusing on that, i should just move on and make the most out of what is now and what i can do better today.

yeah, im trying to be a bigger person, so i hope you don't mind me being a bit more serious today. over the past few days, i realized that things will not always go your way and sometimes you just have to go with the flow. more often than not, you always end up in a good situation than you expected and through that you actually learn to appreciate your decisions more.

i was so prepared to rant about some personal stuff here and there, but i figured that there's no point of doing that now. what's more important is to be able to see pass through the negativity and lack of inspiration. i learned to be more grateful over the things that i have in my life right now like my growing wardrobe which i'm excited to wear this coming fall, the job that im looking forward to in a week's time, my wonderful relationship with the boyfriend or even just the fact that it's the weekend! you see, not everyone can have it as easy as that, right?

i feel like the world doesn't need all this negative energy. so yeah, i think the point of this post is to at least make you stop and think, even for just a few seconds, of the things that you are grateful for right now. and hopefully, you'll be able to grow a sense of appreciation towards them, whoever or whatever they may be.

P.S. i promise more outfit/fashion posts next week. for now, check out my chictopia!


  1. These pictures are stunning :) I'm sorry you had a rough week- but your strength is positively inspiring. Your good attitude is what counts :) I think you're absolutely right, too. I especially learned this year that you should ALWAYS do what YOU think is right and what you want, even if things aren't going your way, because in the end, good things WILL happen!!

  2. Lovely post and you're absolutely right! There IS way, way, WAY too much negativity in this world. I love your outlook and sometimes things just need to get worse before they get better :)


  3. Agreed. Over the last few days I've been setting myself short-term 'happiness' goals, little things I aim to achieve every day, and in turn, I feel much more positive, productive, and thankful for the beautiful things in my life that I do have. Lovely post. Note to self. Less of the ranty posts! =)Irish Love xxx

    These photos are absolutely beautiful. They are sure to brighten a dreary day. :) I wish you well my dear! Keep up the positive thoughts.

  5. What a great post ~ it's always been my philosophy to live life in thankfulness and I love it when I see other people thinking about how important it is to be grateful. Yay for the deep&meaningful!

    I'm grateful that little things in life can still be good through the bad and I hope there will be lots of good things for you. ^U^

    Oh, btw, Hi! I found you from Selective Potential and I thought I'd stop by and say hello. ><

  10. LoveLOVEloveLOVEEEEEEE this post!
    Sometimes it's not even worth taking time to dwell on things of a negative nature.
    Sometimes it's just best to move on and look at the positive things in life.
    Appreciation for the small things in life will get you far, further than you may have even expected.
    <3 all the best!

  11. So well said..definitely Inspirational And SO TRUE..
    GOod luck for everythingu are upto and especially ur new job.

  12. You are taking the right steps to get to where you need to go. Getting upset wont change what happenend of what lays in store for the future. We all have so much to be happy for. Beautiful post.


  13. I agree with you completely. It's no fun to get all worked up and write an entire post complaining about stuff. When you force yourself to think about the good stuff, write about it and put it out there you start to feel genuinely better.

    Such a good positive outlook! I wish you even more blessings :)
