525,600 minutes | 23 things I'm grateful for in 2013

hello hello
As you all know 2013 hasn't been easy for me, I've been quiet to the public about my injury but here it is, Ive not been able to grip a pencil for 6 months now and walk comfortably either but that hasn't stopped me from living my life as best as I can. Just have to keep holding on:) darkest before dawn right? recovery is near:)I've been injured for the most part and am still in the process of recovery. I shan't go into all the pain and drama as I think it's better to celebrate the good and reflect on how amazing my life has been despite all of that.

Here are 23 things/people I'm so grateful for in 2013
