There's Always A Reason To Be Thankful

Thursday, 24 November 2011

I am very thankful everyday for a lot of things, but today I am especially thankful for a few things because after almost eight weeks of overwhelming emotional and physical stress, things are finally beginning to fall right into place.

First of all, my mother is back to her normal health after a stroke scare. Although she still feels dizzy every now and then, she's a lot better than she was. So thank God for that. I must admit that a part of my stress in the recent weeks was family related. I'm normally quite good at handling problems, but when it comes to family I am at my weakest. It's really difficult when your family doesn't understand you and you feel like you are being blamed for a lot of things. And to make things worse, they say things about you that you know aren't true. It breaks my heart to think that the almost perfect family that I grew up with, has become quite dysfunctional. But despite the fact that things are not 100% okay between me and my family, I am still thankful that I have one. At the end of the day, they're my family and no matter what happens, I will always be there for them.

Don was made redundant not long ago, but luckily he found a new job straight away. But this opportunity means that we have to move to London. Honestly, I really don't have a problem moving to London. Actually I think it's about time for me to get out of my comfort zone and explore life a little bit more. However, as much as I was excited about the thought of living life in a much bigger city, finding the right place to live in became almost unbearable. I nearly had an emotional breakdown. That experience is something that I honestly don't want to go through again. Imagine, for 200 pounds a week you either get a flat in a good location and close to the city but with a size of a shoe box, or a bigger flat but miles away! It came to a point where flat hunting was not fun anymore and it was making me miserable. To be fair I probably didn't try hard but with a lot of things happening at the same time, I couldn't do anymore. Then one day, I found this good enough size flat five tube stops away from Don's workplace and that was it- my search was finally over! I know I might have taken the flat out of frustration, but we are only going to live there for a few months and we can always look for another flat while we're there, so it shouldn't be that bad! 

Yesterday, I finally had my pharmacology exam- thank God. This means that I can finally have my life back after spending most of the last six months studying and writing essays . The exam was not as bad as I thought it would be. I felt good after I submitted my papers, so I am hoping that I will pass. I don't care if I don't get a high grade as long as I don't need to do it again. 

There you go,  just a few things that I am most thankful for at the moment. What about you, what are you thankful for?

Anyway, I am going to end this blog with a song that I recently found in you tube.

Happy Thanksgiving!
