Hello Diary,

This week has been tough, with my emotions,and feeling crappy, but this series is about finding the positive within the sadness. chaos/ depression.

So what has happened this week that I have enjoyed?

We had our Tribal Awards this week, and I was awarded the inspire award! I was extremely chuffed to say the least! The amusing bit, was probably where it was announced, and I had no clue, because my phone crashed! It suddenly went crazy, buzzing away violently! It took me a good few minutes just for my phone to stop playing dead, so I could actually read what was going on!
Encase none of this makes any sense; our Tribe hosts a Twitter live chat every Tuesday evening between 8-9PM, and this was when our awards were announced!
A massive thank you to Queen Katie for all the time and effort she put into making the badges, and creating the awards!
She has a golden soul this one!

It was also Gary’s birthday this week, so we had a nice romantic meal, and some quality time together! 🙂

We have booked our holiday abroad! It just so happens to be where my best friend is getting married!!! 😉 I cannot wait!

Gary and I have also started going back to the gym, we both got a bit complacent, and as the gym is a great way of us letting off steam/ getting fit, it’s also nice to have a new something to focus on! My goal will be to get fitter and tone up, so I don’t look like a wobbly jelly at my best friends wedding in the Summer! 🙂

Gratitude List:

Doing kind things for friends, and seeing their joy, excitement and happiness is just priceless!
* Quality time with Gary, we only really spend about an hour together in the evenings, because we’d rather go online and talk to our friends instead! 😂
* The gym: Going there will not only keep me focused, but it will really keep my mood boosted!
* Blogging: encase that wasn’t obvious? 😉 i’m so grateful to all the help, support and encouragement i’ve been getting on my blogging journey. On top of that; I have made some wonderful friends, and I will get to meet them in the Summer!
* My Sister: she went out of her way to campaign and support me this week for the BiBs shortlisting! It doesn’t matter whether or not I become a finalist. I’m ecstatic that I am where I am already. But my gorgeous Sister made it all the more special by being such a fantastic support network! 😽❤️
• #TribalLove now seriously, where would I be without these fantastic women? They are all fantastic in their own way, and I am truly enjoying getting to know them all! The support we give each other is invaluable, and the love that shines through is just fantastic! Congratulations to those who won A Tribal award! And massive hugs to those of you that voted for me! 🍾😙
I’m sure I could waffle on for a lot longer, because I have so much to be grateful for, as well as things to be positive about.
But I don’t want to bore you or myself any longer!

Until next time,

Much love,
Sassy x

  1. It’s such a good idea to jot down all the things you are grateful for, I might have to start putting mine all down so that when the year is over I can realise how much good there is in my life!

    • Hey Lu,
      Thanks for leaving a comment! 🙂 It really is a great thing to do, I do it to help keep me focused during each week, because there’s always something to be grateful for, and positive about 🙂
      If you did, shoot me your series, i’d love to read it 🙂 xxx #TribalLove

      My mood has certainly lifted! Thank you for your words of encouragement! 🙂 As Dory would say; just keep swimming 😉

      Aww shucks *blushes* thanks so much! I truly appreciate it!
      As was yours by the way! 🙂 xxx #TribalLove

  3. Can’t wait to meet you soon! Such a wonderful post, gratitude lists always make me feel more positive. I miss going to the gym funnily enough, it’s so good for feeling great about yourself and yay for more quality time with Gary. Recently me and my other half have vowed to each other to do this at least once a month! Xx #triballove

    • I actually can’t wait to meet you all, beware, I will be dishing out the hugs like they’re business cards! 😉
      The gym is great, I never used to go because I was too self conscious of how much of a fool i’d look, then I went and thought pssshhhttt; I can’t see them, they can’t see me! 😉 Great logic I know! 😉
      Aww that’s lovely! It’s good to spend quality time with the OH! I hope you both enjoy that special time together! 🙂 xxx #TribalLove

  4. Aww Sassy this is a beautiful post – I love reading blogs where people focus on the positive. That Tribal award was so well deserved – you really are a true inspiration. Love your gratitude list – made me giggle where you mentioned that you and Gary would rather be on your phones – we are all guilty of that but it did make me smile. carry on being positive you gorgeous girl and I look forward to meeting you in my pop up champagne tent at Britmums! #triballove

    • Aww thank you so much! That was a very sweet comment! You certainly deserved your award! I love reading and writing gratitude lists 🙂 it brings the happy out in everyone!
      Haha I know, we’re so anti-social to one another! He’s a massive gamer, and so are all of his friends, so his way of hanging out with friends is playing computer games and chatting on Skype 🙂
      At least we are both anti social together 😉
      Cannot wait for this champagne tent! We’ll be dancing on the tables by the end of the night! 😉 xxx #TribalLove

    • Hey Fi,
      Thank you for your beautiful comment! I truly appreciate it! 🙂 I wasn’t always a happy bunny haha, but I find being positive is better for everyone involved! 😉
      I wish you were coming to BML!! xxx #TribalLove

    • Hey lovely,
      Thanks so much for the comment and congratulations 🙂
      Haha I think this generation of people are more bothered about talking to the people on the other end of a screen than the people we are in the room with! 😉
      Ahh well it gives everyone a headache free life! Haha 😉 xxx NBC

  5. Congrats on the tribal award! I just joined last week and enjoy being a part of the group. Only wish I was in the same time zone. I love your gratitude list and have been thinking of starting my own gratitude journal. I think its a great way to stay positive. #TribalLove

  6. Gorgeous post Sassy! Tribal awards were fab and I’m so glad you won the inspire one. How exciting about the wedding and holiday, wahoo. #triballove
