My life is full of little pleasures and I really should take the time to realise that every now and then, instead of moaning and whining.
2. Being self-sufficient - Sometimes I forget how brilliant and satisfying it is to be completely self-sufficient at the age of 23. I have a full-time job, pay all my own bills, run my car, pay for car insurance and can even stretch to have a holiday once a year (though on a TIGHT budget) and give people presents at Christmas. This may not seem like a lot but I am so proud of the fact that I rely on no one, not my parents or my partner or anyone to get by. In a world full of lavish expense and glamour I feel being self-sufficient is overlooked. Sure it's not fancy or news worthy but it is brilliant.
4. Having my own place - So I only rent and it isn't in the nicest place and parts of it could definitely do with sprucing up and it steals most of my pay packet but it's all mine. Sure I can't wait for the day when I can move somewhere nicer and share somewhere with the SO and we discuss paint colours and room decor and buy stuff because we won't be moving anytime soon, but my little flat is fine. For now.
5. The SO - I'm not a cheesy person, and I will yell at him if he tries to PDA me but he is a good egg. I am so lucky to have someone in my life that respects me for who I am and shares the same dreams and ideals as I do. I never thought I would land someone like him but I did and it was worth all of the heartache beforehand.
