Things that I should be grateful for and often take for granted

When writing this particular item for the paper, I have to admit that I wasn’t feeling my usual self.

We all get off days and it’s very difficult to be positive and upbeat all of the time. More so lately during the pandemic lockdown.

But when these niggling doubts creep in, it’s time to reflect on the things that I should be grateful for and often take for granted.

For a start, I woke up this morning, I could see out of the bedroom window and I can breathe in fresh air. Well – do you know what,  that’s a great start.

There are so many things that we all take for granted.  No doubt we are all guilty of taking people and relationships for granted at times and I am sure I’m not alone in having more time than ever to reflect on how lucky I am over the last few weeks.

Then I read that the Chelsea Flower Show’s been cancelled. Well, let’s be honest, we don’t need it this year, we’ve all got show gardens by now anyway with the amount of time we have spent in them!
