Appreciate the good things in life

Sometimes, when I am struggling with life or I’m just having a hard time, I try to write down what I’m going through. Other times, I try to focus my thoughts on the good things I have in life.

I will share this with you, in the hopes that you will realise that there’s more to life than bad things… Sure, we spend most of our life thinking about what went wrong, or how bad we have it… and what about that damn bad luck or bad timing? But if you fight it, good things can be achieved like…

  • Having a good relationship with your family
  • Having friends that you can count on day in, day out (I don’t have many, but that’s ok! Quality over quantity)
  • Appreciating the little thing
  • Having a job
  • Being able to afford a roof over your head and a daily meal on the table
  • Being able to pay the bills at the end of the month
  • Being your own person, even if this make others cringe… Embrace yourself!
  • Being a decent cook
  • Owning two naughty but loving cats
  • The ability to drive a car and go places (unless the roads are flooding because of heavy rain!)
  • Affording to go on holiday every once in a while
  • Making random people or strangers happy with a simple act of kindness
  • Owning your own little house
  • Being creative in my own way…. through photography
  • Being able to listen to live music and talk with people over a few drinks (Sounds simple, but some of us don’t have the privilege)
  • Volunteering in a charity shop
  • Having that one person (or more!) in your life, that will always make you smile… no matter what you are going through

Surely this is not all…. I’m only getting started 😉


Live music marathon in Aid of Hospice

In the next few minutes a marathon is kicking off in the aid of the Malta Hospice Movement. This is an event happening during the next three days. There are 43 music acts participating in this, mostly rock bands however there’s a mix of pop, some metal, as well as music with Maltese lyrics. Some of the bands are new to the scene and are even performing for the first time in public, but it’s all guaranteed to be fun, especially for such a good cause!

The entrance is a donation of 10 euro for the three days. The marathon is taking place in the limits of Mosta at the ‘Razzett l-Ahmar’. One can buy drinks and make a day out of it!

The venue has both an inside and out door area, but since today is rather cold, the organisers decided to move everything indoors which offers a cosier environment.

Dates and times:
Friday 6th Feb 18.00-2.35am
Saturday 7th Feb 10am-3.35am
Sunday 8th Feb 10- 1.35am
Bands will play on the hour and will have 35 mins playing time, leaving 25 mins for a change over.

This is the poster for the event:

This is the marathon’s running order in case you are after a few bands in particular:
