Post what you like about your life :) - May 6th 2012, 06:37 PM

People can be negative, so let's try and think about positive things about your life Post things you're grateful for. These can be minor or major things.

I'm grateful that I live in a first world country.
I get along with my parents.
I have supportive parents.
I have a great sister.
I have a best friend who I trust.
I love my pets.
I'm grateful that I have an internet connection and can talk to all you lovely people <3
I can be a strong person.
I'm capable of loving people.
I love my nan.
I'm grateful that I can read/write and that someone actually bothered to teach me.

This is a great idea!
Lets see im grateful for:
*I know how to read
*I have nice, non abusive parents
*My 2 best friends who mean the world to me
*Music
* Internet to talk to beautiful people.
*Air to breathe
*A house to live in
*Food on my plate
*When i have something to smile about
*That im staying strong. <3





From day one I talked about getting out
But not forgetting about
How all my worst fears are letting out
He said, "Why put a new address on the same old loneliness?"
When breathing just passes the time
Until we all just get old and die

This is a wonderful idea!

I'm grateful for:

Having a roof over my head.
Having a family who genuinely care about me.
Getting along with my family.
Having such a wonderful mum and nan.
Having some of the most amazing friends I could imagine.
Smiles.
My cat.
The education I've had.
The support I get given by so many people.
The ability to write.

I'll add more another time.

I really like this.
I like:
  • The ability to continue my education past high school
  • The opportunity to attend a top ranked university
  • Having two great supportive best friends
  • Having a roommate that is totally different from me, but is accepting of who I am
  • Parents that go out of their way to help me, even when I don't want their help
  • Being able to see and hear all of the beautiful things around me
  • Living in a large city
  • The challenge.

I love that my parents support me 100%, I love that I am a fighter. I love that I go to an amazing top-notch school and belong to a super cool sorority. I love that I'll be graduating soon. I love that I have the ability to travel. I love my friends. Most importantly though, I love that I love myself and that it took work to get there.

This is an awesome idea! It should get sticky-ed

~My family
~My best friend
~My other friends (even if we don't always get along)
~My dog
~My ability to make myself laugh with my own jokes in my head, then say them out loud and realise they aren't funny, which makes me laugh louder
~TH
~My bedroom :3
~The hyper moods that randomly occur <3
~The laughs, the smiles, the good times

Well...I don't really like myself...very much at all...but what I like about my life:
that I have a perfect perfect guy and girl in my life who are always there for me and love me for who I am.
that I have very supportive friends who are there for me and can always make me smile
that I have been given an okay singing voice (I say okay, while those who hear me either cry or hug me or are in complete awe)
that I have TeenHelp and other sources to let out my feelings
that I have people who are helping me to stop hurting myself
that the world lets me see some really breathtaking things
music
love
hope

I have a good family, we might not be the best but I'm lucky
I have an amazing group of friends, maybe not the biggest but they're amazing.
I'm going to be able to go to CHINA!
I can go back to Centauri and do more writing
People actually like my fanfictions enough to review <3
I'm me!
I CANZ WATCH YOUTUBE TODAY! (maybe not big for others, but for me this is huge!)
I have a nice warm home and a bed.
A loving, cute dog.

-
this isn't even everything and I feel so lucky.


I've said it once, I've said it twice, I've said it a thousand fucking times
That I'm OK, that I'm fine, that it's all just in my mind
But this has got the best of me, and I can't seem to sleep
It's not 'cause you're not with me, it's cause you never leave

You learn at a certain pace. Then that pace goes away. Then

you try and try to do everything you can. Then it gets harder.

Then you give up. Then its all over.

How technologically advanced the world is. I can connect to the internet in seconds. I'm playing The Sims 3 right now and the graphics are amazing. Humans have made the world how it is today. Biologically I'm as an intelligent as any other human, I can do amazing things also.
