Throughout the day we thank our god a million times for something that happens good to us but most of the time it’s just empty words without any meaning. Today I decided to begin to actually be grateful for the little things in life which I take for granted because I honestly believe my life will be more fulfilled if I perceive some small, everyday moments as great life gifts.
I am grateful that I have a small circle of good friends which are always there for me and that I actually have friends who can sit with me and drink coffee for hours and just talk. Drinking coffee together is something me and my friends do often. In Croatia an hour and a half long coffee drinking is a part of our culture. Take-out coffee is not so popular with us because we like to sit in a bar and drink our coffee with our friends and we are so used to this that we take it for granted. I decided to be grateful for having friends to do this little coffee drinking tradition with.
There is one special friend I have. She is my best friend and the person that knows me best and she is my mother. I’m not some mommy’s little princess but my mother is such a special person, she’s my warrior and I’m so grateful to have such a strong role model in my life. She taught me what love is, that I can survive everything and that I’m strong enough and good enough to reach my full potential in life. She made so many sacrifices for me and I owe her to be the person she always believed I was.
I am grateful for every morning in which I have time to eat a healthy, delicious breakfast. I’m a breakfast enthusiast, breakfast is everything but I stopped appreciating it as I did before. From now on, every time I have my oatmeal or sandwich in the morning I will remember to be grateful to be able to enjoy it.
Zadar is such a lovely, warm, beautiful town and I enjoyed it a lot until I got used to it. I forgot to appreciate the sea, the bridge, the Greetings to the Sun, the Sea Organ, the talkative people, the beautiful sights and beaches, the old town… Most of the people who visit Zadar are left amazed with it and I live in this beautiful city so I’m going to be more grateful for all that it has to offer.

I have been going through some hardship lately and I talked about it in my post Self-doubt and Lack of Motivation. I am grateful for all the problems I went through, all the nights spent crying and for every time I thought I won’t be able to go forward anymore because if I hadn’t gone through all of that I would never be able to start building a stronger version of myself as I am doing right now. This collapse I survived made me realize I am strong enough and that hardships are here to make us remember what we are capable of so I’m grateful for the good and the bad, the darkness and the light.
I could go on forever with this list but I’m going to stop here. I hope you liked this and tell me in the comments what are you grateful for!
