Out comes the sun, shining on my face again.

On 18th December, many years ago, a beautiful  baby girl was born. A first born daughter to a wonderful family. She has had her fair share of misfortunes and success but all in all she had a family that has always been there for her.

Today, i choose to be grateful for life. It’s a proven fact that keeping a gratitude journal makes you feel happier. I started keeping a gratitude journal last year and  this has made me happy , content and positive. I am no longer resentful and i complain a little. When i feel sad, i always go back to my diary and read my gratitude journal.

So today being my birthday,here’s a list of 26 things I’m grateful for.

  1. My job. It gives me an opportunity to serve people and make new friends and acquaintances every day. I am also able to pay my bills.
  2. My colleagues at work.
  3. The tea girls at work. Damaris and Pauline prepare the best tea!
