8 things I am thankful in 2017

If I had to summarised my twenty seventeen I would said that it was not my great year. I had so many challenges thrown at me that I felt like giving up. I just have to remind myself that I can’t give up. I can’t destroy myself just because I got my heart broken to million pieces for the millionth time. 

In order for me to feel good about myself and be thankful, I have to look deeper beyond the pain. No matter how hard my life was in 2017 I still have a lot of things to be thankful for. The big and little memories that I want to cherish for the year to come. I want to remember 2017 as the best year of my life.

  1. I never thought I would be brave enough to say that I am done being a victim. I am not a backup plan and I am not a punch bag. It’s about time I take control of my life. I finally did it and it feels good and scary at the same time
  2. I never thought that I would have the opportunity to travel to Turkey. I don’t think this country made it to my wanted to visit list. In away it’s a good thing because I can expand my horizon and experience a place that is totally different that what I am used to.
  3. I love my job and I wish I could do more. My vision is to see my department moving towards a paperless working environment. Change can be hard. We need to show them that paperless work environment can be done. Not printing documents can be done. I am so thankful that I have my ipad pro and Apple pencil to help me prove that going paperless is not hard.
  4. I never thought I would buy another car. I don’t feel like I am worthy enough to drive someone else car. I decide out of necessity to treat myself a new car. It feels so good to finally drive my own car and not depend on other people mercy. Being independent is the best feeling in the world.
  5. I am so thankful to be alive right now where there we so many new technologies around. I love all of my gadgets especially Kindle Oasis and my Apple watch. I secretly wanted to have a smart home with google home all around the house and connected to all of my devices. I can just say OK google switch of the lights. I am still waiting patiently for Homepod.
  6. My obsession with apps and tools help me to organise my thoughts and help me to better plan my life. Apps I am loving at the moment are Trello, Todoist, Google Calendar, Evernote and Goodnotes. I can't go by my daily life without using at least three or more apps. I am so so thankful for them.
  7. I discovered Mahkota Dewa coffee this year and it was the best affordable coffee I have ever had. It gives me great pleasure to drink this coffee every morning at work
  8. I am also thankful for the opportunity to ride a hot air balloon in Cappadocia. I might not put this in my bucket lists because I am afraid of the height but I am still glad that I did them. This is definitely once a lifetime experience to see Cappadocia from air. Love love love the view

This list does make me feel better about myself. It teaches me to be thankful for all the great things in my life. Be in the presence of greatness and live my life the way I wanted. Make things happened and not let the bad things that happened clouded my view and happiness. 

I am so looking forward to 2018. May this year be the best year yet. I am stronger than I think and remember that life is not about waiting for the storm to pass but learning to dance in the rain.
