100 Things I’m Grateful For // A Happy LIst

100 Things I'm Grateful For 

I sat down tonight, not sure what to write about. But then I saw a post on agirlobsessed about 100 things she was grateful for, and I thought That’s It! I love writing posts about things I’m grateful for or things that make me happy, because it really puts life into perspective. It helps me realize that I have a whole heck of a lot to be thankful for and it brightens my mood considerably.

So tonight I want to challenge you all to make a list of things that you’re thankful for or of things that make you happy and share them in the comments below! It doesn’t have to be a list of 100, start out with a list of 5 or 10 or 20 and work your way up. It’s always proved to be therapeutic for me and my soul, and I hope it’ll be the same for you.
I wish you all a beautiful and happy night.
All the love,
Shi xx
