The louder you scream how happy you are, the further it is from the truth. This is one of the reasons why I’m no longer counting my blessings each week. I have plenty of them, but I no longer feel the need to share each and everyone I had each week. Positive thinking is something that comes very natural to me. I see the good shine out through the bad in pretty much everything I do. But counting my blessings so publicly started to feel fake. Because not everything is as great as I make it seem. (as you can read here.)
That being said, I do feel that counting my blessings is helping me keep up my positive attitude, and is therefor something I want to continue doing, just not on a regular basis. Just whenever the heck I feel like it, basically. Hahaha.
Well, there’s one blessings that needs some special attention, that’s for sure. The fact that I have THE BEST BIG SISTER EVER IN THE WHOLE ENTIRE UNIVERSE. Dear lord that woman is something special ❤ She's always there for me when I need her, she's crazy as hell, she's beautiful, she's a party girl with a hippie heart, she'll listen, she'll talk. She's basically becoming my best friend, and coming from a childhood where we didn't always see eye-to-eye, this is even more special to me ❤
And now, this crazy beautiful person who happens to be my sister, has started a little fundraising. For me. To get me a new couch.
can you believe it?! I ain’t gonna lie, I cried when I read her comment. Yup. Real tears. On mah cheeks.
And while staying in the truth zone, my current couch sucks so, so much. It’s tiny, it’s old, it’s filthy and covered in stains from previous owners and I don’t even wanna know what caused them. And to get a bigger, better, cleaner, newer one. Well, that would just rock my socks off. And she’s helping me get it. ❤
Rebekka, je bent zo lief, ik hou zo veel van je ❤
Right. Who else needs a tissue right about now?! Phew!
Let's get on to the other, also great, but not as-great, blessings 😉
