reminder to be thankful

It has been one hell of a week. 
This entire year has been an emotional roller coaster but this past week a rush of anger, resentment, sadness, and a whole lot of "it's not f*cking fair"s happened. Usually it takes time, therapy, and tears to bring me back to reality. This instagram from one of my favorite brands also helped put an end to the little pitty party I was having. 
Speaks such truth!

say it out loud!

Lily Allen does - love her! 

An emotional Lily Allen recalled one of her darkest days — when she gave birth to a stillborn, 6-month old son in 2010 — during a raw interview on The Jonathan Ross Show which airs on Saturday, Nov. 8.

"I think it's difficult for anybody regardless of what world they live in…it was the most unfortunate thing that can ever happen to a person," the "Smile" singer, who also miscarried in 2008, recalled of losing her child.
Allen, however, was able to lean on her husband Sam Cooper. "Actually what I took home from that experience was…I was very fortunate in the sense that I have a loving partner to go home to and share that experience with," she added of her hubby, whom she wed in June 2011.

"There are…17 stillbirths in the UK every day… and there are many women that go home and they don't have that support, they have to go home and deal with that on their own so I am kind of in a…count-my-blessings scenario rather than feeling sorry for myself," the pop star said.
Following her loss, Allen then welcomed her first daughter Ethel Mary in November 2012 and another daughter, Marnie Rose, in January 2013. And although she's happy with two, the songstress admitted she's open to trying for a third.
