50 Thing I am Grateful For

I read a post recently that truly resonated with me, I agreed with every single thing that was written, this rarely ever happens. Therefore I just had to share it with you, this post was by Sophie Rosie\ and you can read it here, in this post she lists 100 things that she is thankful for and I sat nodding at everything on her list, but I wanted to create my own list and continue to spread this grateful mindset with my readers too. So here is a list of things I am truly grateful for in life because after all, we should all be a little more thankful for the small things, shouldn't we?

1. Coffee - I LOVE coffee.
2. Family - We may not always get along, but we are always there for one another.
3. Music - Music will always be something I love more than I could ever put into words.
4. Friends - The family we actually got to pick.
5. The internet - Without which I probably wouldn't have figured out a passion of mine.
6. Italian food - Oh those giving Italian people who brought us pizza AND pasta.
7. Free higher education - Scotland may not have good weather, but it saved me from a lot of debt.
8. Flowers - Something so simple yet so beautiful. 
9. Animals - Do I have to explain this one?
10. The past - It made me the person I am today.
11. Old movies - Audrey Hepburn, Humphrey Bogart, Katherine Hepburn, Montgomery Cliff... 
12. The NHS - Without which my nephew might not have made it the 4 years we had him.

16. Puppies - Who doesn't love puppies?
17. Netflix - Otherwise I'd never procrastinate.
18. Shoes - My slight obsession.
19. Freedom - I can do whatever I want, which is quite scary actually.
20. Makeup - Without which I look like I am unwell.
21. Good health - Something I never want to live without.

41. Lip balm - The handbag necessity.

44. Moments you're so caught up in you forget to look at your phone - they're the best.
45. Self-confidence - Everyone should love themselves.
46. Hot water bottles - Scotland gets cold.
47. Trees, nature and wildlife - The world is being taken over by too many cities, we need wildlife.
48. Sleep - My one true love.
49. Seeing people you love smile - Creates a warm feeling from within.
50. MY SCHOLARSHIP - I GOT A SCHOLARSHIP TO STUDY MY MASTERS DEGREE.

I tried to keep my post a little different from Sophie's as to not copy her completely, but there you have it a list of fifty things I am super grateful for. Of course, there are many more things I am super grateful for, but I decided to stick with fifty or I would probably have never stopped and you'd be reading a '254 Things I am Grateful For' post right now. I think it is so important that we always think about the little things that we are so lucky to experience and have in our lives, especially when the world seems like such a dark and cold place as it has done in 2017.

So what are the top five things you are grateful for? Are we grateful for any of the same things? Tell me below in the comments.
