Hello Lovely People !
Recently I've been thinking a lot about how much I have changed over the last few years and it struck me that, as much as I am responsible for how I grow as a person, a great deal of who I am and my happiness revolves around my wonderful friends and family who keep me smiling everyday. It is unbelievably important to show your loved ones how much you appreciate them. So today I thought I'd write a little paragraph expressing my appreciation for the person who's changed my life for the better over the last few years to show how grateful I am. Originally I thought that we could all share our own paragraphs in the comments (which you're more than welcome to do ) but then I decided to make this into a tag ! The world needs a little more positivity and gratitude is a great practice to make you and everyone around you happy.
The Rules ( They're pretty damn simple ) :
- Copy And Paste the rules.
- Write a sentence or two about why gratitude and expressing your appreciation of others is important.
- Write a paragraph about one person who's changed your life for the better or that you really appreciate having around and say why you're so grateful for them.
- Tag as many people a you like to spread the positivity!
The Appreciation Of Others Tag
For me, expressing your gratitude for the people who help you out in life is so, so important because it helps them feel valued and appreciated which is the least the deserve after being so lovely to you !
One Person Who I am Grateful for is ...
My beautiful girlfriend Georgie. Honey, you're the glue that sticks me back together when the world pulls me to pieces and you stand by my side no matter what. No matter how unreasonable or stubborn or stupid or distraught I am; you are ALWAYS there. Thank you for listening to poetry with me and listening to me go on .. and on ... and on ... and on about accidentally vegan food I've found ( I know that's kind of annoying ) you don't have to but you do. I love you because I knew your lips tasted like candyfloss two years before I kissed you and I love you because you waited so patiently, with such compassion through everyday of those two years whilst giving me the confidence to be who I a today. There's a quote in Wuthering Heights and I think of it when I think of you, it says " Whatever souls are made of, his and mine are the same" ... only minus the he because you're a girl and it took me a while to be okay with that but because of you I now am. Because of you, I am brave. Because of you I smile when I'm falling asleep. Because of you, I understand what forever means and I know that love doesn't mean anything without you.
I would like to tag : Rainbow-Rose Blossom, The Thirty Something Life, A Cozy Space, Glass Of Ice, Love From Berlin, Shoes and Glitter and The creative Palette ! And of course if any of you would like to do the tag on your blogs then feel free to or you can leave your paragraphs in the comments.
Stay Strong <3 Stay Smiley :)
Lots of love, Marianne xxx
