When it came time to come up with a blog idea I got a bit stuck on the topic of being thankful. It’s that time of year where you start seeing all over social media the many reasons why people are thankful and to be honest it sounds the same year after year. Everyone is always thankful for the good things that happen in life but why don’t we ever talk about the bad? Why aren’t we thankful for the heartbreaks, the sadness and the unhealthy relationships? Aren’t these the things that make happiness and love seem that much more wonderful? I find it hard to understand that I would be the only one to ever question this. Is it because I’m dead, lost and lonely on the inside? Doubt it! This year I turned twenty-nine and no better way to say thankful for this wonderful year than with twenty-nine horrible things that happened thus far.
Twenty-nine states of mine that taught me to be indifferent
Twenty-nine crying all the time. Morning, Day, Night, Offline!
Twenty-nine boys who shall not be named
Twenty-nine lies that float in the air
Twenty-nine “I’ve changed my mind”
Twenty-nine I’m getting old.
Twenty-nine I’m feeling old.
Twenty-nine I’m wasted.
Twenty-nine “but he’s gone”
Twenty-nine I could be more delicate.
Twenty-nine bad dates
Twenty-nine bad selfies
Twenty-nine I’m going to change my job
Twenty-nine I’ve made up my mind
Twenty-nine push-ups at a time
Twenty-nine love words that only hurt myself
Twenty-nine “I wish I could love myself”
Twenty-nine don’t come near me
Twenty-nine we don’t stop for no one
Twenty-nine times standing there alone
Twenty-nine being afraid and hiding behind that baby face
Twenty-nine coming back home
Twenty-nine I’m broken
Twenty-nine winds of change
Twenty-nine shattered dreams
Twenty-nine begging you back through tears
Twenty-nine I’m guilty
Twenty-nine messing up somebody else
