I hope you’re doing well. I haven’t been blogging since the beginning of May and I really missed the blogging community as well as my readers. May was all about exams and school work, thus I couldn’t find time to blog or engage with other bloggers. But I’m back and cannot wait to write blog posts.
In today’s post, I’ll mention 5 things I’m grateful for. I think being grateful for things we have is really important for our self-care. In today’s world, everyone is so busy with their lives and they can’t realise how lucky they are. Thankfully I managed to understand how lucky I’m by observing people and my life. Now let’s get on to the topic!
1. MY FAMILY
Of course, the first thing I’m really grateful is my family. My family consists of my mom, my dad and my sister. We’re so close to each other which I find really cool because most of my friends can’t tell important things to their parents. With the lack of communication in families, distrust might occur. I always share my secrets and thoughts with my family members, therefore we’re like best friends. In my opinion, having friends is really important for social life but having a good relationship with family is much more important than that. Because I believe that the family will be always on your side. You should spend more time with your family because you can’t take these times back.
2. THE BLOGGING COMMUNITY
I started blogging nearly 1 year ago! I can’t believe how time flies so fast. During this one year journey, I saw how supportive and friendly the blogging community is. I have lots of blogger friends from all around the world, which I find amazing. Everyone helps each other by telling the truth so we can improve ourselves by recommendations and comments. I might write a blog post about the things I learned during my first year of blogging; so if you’re interested comment down below!
3. MY CITY: ISTANBUL
I live in Istanbul/Turkey. I always loved Istanbul because it’s a very important city by its unique culture, architecture, nature and cuisine. I’m proud of being a Turkish girl and really grateful to live in Istanbul. Istanbul connects two continents: Europe and Asia, which I find really interesting. If you want a detailed blog post about my city let me know in the comments section!
4. BEING ABLE TO EXERCISE
Sports was always a major thing in my life since I was 4. I started with gymnastics than I played volleyball for 5 years and now I’m doing pilates and yoga. I love how doing exercise makes me feel much positive and happier. Being able to do sports or exercise is such a good thing but I believe most of us don’t even realise how lucky we are. If you’re too lazy to exercise just remember that there are lots of people who CANNOT do physical activities due to their disabilities.
I love reading books; it may sound like a cliche but reading different kinds of books is changing my perspective on life. Fiction or non-fiction, self-care, nutrition books are my favourites genres. Spending my time by reading books is one of the best ways to improve myself. If you have any book suggestions to read during summer vacation let me know by commenting down below.
That’s all for today’s post. I’ll be back soon with another post about food. Stay tuned my lovely readers.
