Things I'm Grateful For | 2017

It's the time of the year where I slightly feel a bit sentimental and make time to reflect on the year gone by. 2017 has absolutely flown by and literally blood, sweat and tears went into getting through 2017. And for the most part, I did it. So I thought, what a better way to end 2017 on a good and positive note than to list the things I'm most grateful for! Am I right or am I right? 

It's so easy for us to take things for granted. We don't have a clue about the value of something until it's gone. Even when things don't go our way, we tend to forget that there are so many things to be grateful for regardless of how bad the case may be. So here are 36 things I'm grateful for this year.

Things I'm Grateful For | LENNE ZULKIFLLY

  1. My family. The ones that always got my back. And I miss them badly. 
  2. My part-time job. It's my first working experience. I hate it at first but I can't lie how much I love it now and how it has made some part of my life so much easier. 
  3. Cats. I can't imagine the world without cats. They are so comforting and they feel like home to me. 
  4. Friends. The ones I have now and those I once had. Thank you. 
  5. The weather. Though I complain so much about it being too sunny or the other way around, I still love it regardless. 
  6. Sunrise & sunsets. So majestic. 
  7. Grab & Uber. Thank you for always being there for me when I don't have a ride. 
  8. French fries. Greatest invention. 
  9. My phone. I have had it since forever. It annoys me, it irritates me but my favorite persons live in it <3
  10. Notebooks. 
  11. Water. As much as I love my milk tea, I still can't go a day without you. 
  12. Long drives. Especially at night when there's barely anyone on the street and it's super calming! 
  13. Sleep in. One thing that I look forward to, every single day. 
  14. Plants. 
  15. Vanilla scent. 
  16. Good health. The ability to just keep moving forward every day. Alhamdulillah. 
  17. My education. 
  18. The internet. What is distance, anyway? 
  19. Movies & karaokes. 
  20. Music. 
  21. My five senses. 
  22. Mirrors. I can't go a day without looking at myself in the mirror. 
  23. Weekends. It's often unproductive but I just love it. 
  24. Rainy days. 
  25. Makeup. How can I not include this? 
  26. Flat shoes. 
  27. Green tea. The ones in a giant cup with lots of ice and condensed milk. Yum!
  28. Fresh air. 
  29. Sheet masks. Thanks for making my nights extra fancy. 
  30. Hokkaido Baked Cheese Tart. To. Die. For! 
  31. Instagram. 
  32. Long walks. Had to sneak in some cardio. 
  33. Strangers. They tell me stories of their past and their family or even how pretty my makeup looks. 
  34. Spicy ramen. 
  35. Home. It doesn't have to be a house. Whatever, wherever or whoever home is, I am happy to have one. 
  36. The blog. And the lovely people I have known through blogging. 
The list could go on and on but I will stop here. I'm pretty sure there's more to be thankful for and I'm going to spend the last few days of 2017 showing gratitude and spreading happy vibes. Here's to a tough but exciting new chapter! Thank you so much for reading ❤
