[Dress gifted to me by SHEIN]

The other day I was sitting on my balcony, I just sat there and thought for a moment. I looked at my cat who was sitting on the step, I looked into the pink living room adorned with all the things I adore, I then stood up and looked out to the London skyline as I could hear my favourite song playing on the TV – I was stunned. This is all I have ever wanted.

I'm at peace with myself, where I am and what I've got. My life (other than the shit that's going on in the world at the moment) is pretty great. I live in a lovely big, bright apartment in London, it's decorated exactly how I like, I'm grateful for every single thing I own, and I'm happy with how I carry myself. 

Sometimes you've just got to appreciate everything you're so lucky to have. Yes, everything might not be rosy and perfect – but picking out the good things is so important. Every little good thing in your life is a reason to smile, to be grateful, to be thankful and to be happy! 

I am far from the average girl my age – I've never set foot in a club, I've never kissed anyone, I've not had a boyfriend, I rarely drink – but I am SO content, so happy and so thankful that I am as I am. I've never been forced into anything I didn't want to do and everything I do, I do because I genuinely love it! People my age probably think I'm boring and dull, and yes, I may have seen it like that in the past – I don't think I'm boring or dull. I think I'm exciting and interesting because I'm different, I'm unique and I have different interests to other people my age. Yes, I may choose to knit over going on a night out. Yes, I may not have a social life as fruitful as some because I've dedicated my life to blogging. But I'm truly content with myself, my life and what I do.

Yes, life might be a little odd at the moment; Yes, my mental health might not be perfect; Yes, I might not be living the life in 2020 that I had imagined – but I like to sit and reflect most evenings on what I'm so lucky to have and just how much I love my life. Sometimes it's just nice to sit down and go through everything you're grateful for... and then you'll realise that life isn't so bad after all and that you're exactly on the road you're meant to be!
