Over the past few days, I've been feeling a little bit wobbly to say the least. Slightly emotional, overdramatic and being a general drama queen. However, in my defence sometimes it's good to just let it all out, shake it off and carry on as I was before - and that's just what I did. I have come to accept that my life is not perfect, I am not perfect - nobody is perfect - and that's fine by me. After a few days of moaning and generally feeling down about myself - it now hits me just how lucky I really am. I don't want this to sound as if I am bragging, but I am lucky to have a roof over my head, good health, a loving family, boyfriend and a job. I'm not unemployed and desperately trying to find work, I'm not unloved and I'm not ill - so why do I still find things to complain about?
I guess it's down to'first world problem's. (Have I said that right?) For example, my laptop has just bust and I've had to buy a new one. Instead of moaning that it died on me and how typical had to get a new one - I should be glad I had one in the first place! As without my laptop, I wouldn't have this little blog of mine and my laptop has seen plenty of blogging days and twitter chats, so it was bound to lay down and die soon. Also, I've been having a moan because I can't afford to move out. Why cant I just enjoy my time living with my parents, enjoy the lesser amount of bills and housework and just look forward to my future? Well, that's me from now on.
What I am trying to say is that sometimes, things in life don't always work out the way that you want them to - but that doesn't mean they wont work out one day. There are things I would love to work towards and hopefully one day I'll get there. Even then, life won't be perfect, because the perfect life doesn't exist. I can't strive for something that doesn't exist can I? I promise to appreciate what I have, stop moaning and realise just how lucky I am.
Do you ever find yourself forgetting to appreciate your life? x
