The List!

So this year I wanted to get down what I’ve learnt and what I hope to achieve next year and what I achieved this year. Let’s do this! Please feel free to share with us anything about this year! I went with 19 initially because we are going from 2018 to 2019. This is actually what I have posted on my personal Facebook as well as reflecting on the year a bit. I just wasn’t sure that you’d all be interested in that.

19 Things that make me happy to be alive.

I saw this on a Blog that I enjoy reading and I thought it was a fantastic idea! I went with 19 because we’re heading into 2019. Instead of a get to know me type list, or a goals list. Last year I thought I was going to die and I didn’t, but it’s the closest I’ve felt like I’ve come to it. Instead of getting to know me, how about the things and people that make me happy to be alive.

  1. That I am still alive to make the choice to walk away and/or stay ❤
  2. Music…Some people pray to God, I pray to Music.
  3. When you are reading a new book from a new author and you love it and you don’t want to stop reading it.
  4. I have been reading classic novels and have read a huge amount of the Agatha Christie books this year, instead of just watching the movies and the tv shows. I love them! When you read the books, you realise WHY the author is a classic author. If you do want to follow me, I’m on Goodreads. https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/24833271-lauren
  5. The people in my life right now. When I think about it, the most toxic people are gone. Any doubts I have had about myself, have come from myself and not someone from the outside. Which I can’t even begin to explain how new that is to me. Or how freeing it is.
  6. Nature…Have you ever just sat outside and just looked up? Have you ever just gone for a walk in it, just to go for a walk in it? Have you just sat and listened to the birds?
  7. Food…Freaking food man…It’s the best!
  8. When the shower is that “perfect” temperature…You all know what I’M TALKIN’ BOUT!
  9. That I got to live in the generation who were able to really appreciate the awesome of the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy.
  10. Finding that even if you can’t get your dream or perfect job, as long as you like the people you work with. It doesn’t matter.
  11. Animals – Just am thankful that I get to live in a world with them, and hope to continue so! Except Mosquitos, lol
  12. My health…I may have Anxiety, but overall it’s made me go and get my entire health checked out. My cholesterol was a little high at the beginning of the year and now it’s good again. If it wasn’t for my anxiety, I would have never have gone and got it checked.
  13. Just being a kind person. I’m starting to realise, how little people are kind these days. Just simple acknowledgements of other people’s existence. It’s such a simple, but vital quality to have!
  14. Although I may not drive yet, and I’m not rich. I love being able to visit, pretty much, all over the country and see what a beautiful country I live in.
  15. During my time on medication and not being able to drink, I’m still a lot of fun when I’m sober, lol.
  16. I really love the Internet, for one major reason. It means I can watch live feeds. I can watch safari live, I can watch my friends on Twitch. Its part of the reason I love being alive, right this moment!
  17. That when I want, I can just turn off the Internet, into the arms of loving people.
  18. That we have the resources to take better care of ourselves, and each other. We have a good understanding of what we need to take care of ourselves, we live in a wonderful age.
  19. I’m thankful for the people who’ve attacked me and hated on me. They are the ones who make me realise how happy and how lucky I am.

I believe I’m loved when I’m completely by myself alone
