…look around you. All of this is for you. Take it and have gratitude. Give it and feel love. -Zooey Deschanel
I dedicate this list to you. I’m sorry for the whinging and the grumbles. I really am happy and grateful…it’s just so easy to be open with you.
1.Working limbs to walk, run, cycle and explore.
2.Unexpected friends. Like Laura from Belgium who I met through blogging. who came and stayed with me in Japan and who just happens to be blogging about it NOW.
3.My auntie Pouneh – of course for having me here but also for her many entertaining stories, cycling advice and organic salads!
4.Coffee. I mean come on. Ican’teven without it.
5.Art. Art and creative people. Literature, music, Sundance! Thank you for making me feel all sorts of feels.
6.My mama, who keeps messaging me to be careful not to get a cold? And that I’m her little girl and very pretty. Oh my heart. My world. Thank you.
7.Getting paid to travel. Okay so it’s not much (hint hint Savvy Tokyo) but it’s seriously a dream come true. I did it. I blogged for 730 days in a row, annoyed the hell out of you all and eventually landed myself a teeny tiny writing role. Have you read my latest work? You can HERE, HERE and HERE. Cheers and kampai to (fingers-crossed/touch-wood) many more.
