Why I am thankful for 2017 + iphone case design

Hi people

I don't know about you people but 2017 has been a very thoughtful year for me. It was a very well planned year for me. Oh, I didn't plan for the year but vice-versa

In this post, I will get a little personal. I don't know if you can take it without judging me or not but, I will take my chances :)

But first, let's talk about the second part of this blog post. This iPhone case design is my second collaborated item with an eCommerce website. Check out the first one here (Sherlock Holmes fans would love it).

There is no second of a doubt here that there is a craze for iPhone cases in the market. If you are a brand or sell at a flea market, if your store doesn't have an iPhone case design then you are not ready for the business!

Why I am saying this is because I had literally 100 options and it was so darn hard to choose the design, material, color and so on. Now let me tell you that I had a moment with an iPhone case which didn't disappear. I kept coming back to it for the half hour I spent on Zaful.

Hands down, Zaful is the BEST site currently, for whatever shopping cravings you have. I'm not just saying that because I'm associated with them. In not a single article have I praised them (I didn't need to). But, look at the variety, speedy delivery (another product just reached within 10 days of ordering!), great customer service and quality.

This iPhone cover is made of poly-carbonate, looks super elegant, the design is still in place (been using it for 15 days now) and doesn't have sharper edges so putting it on or removing it, isn't a problem.


Let's quickly talk about the 5 things I am thankful for:

1) Good health - as many of you know how crazy I am about Cassy Ho's Pilates because it and she make me so happy that I cannot put into words. Not only that but also, this time I was able to fully decide for once and for all, whether or not I want to include certain food products in life or not. Bye-bye sugar! So I am pretty thankful for eliminating stuff and including Almond Milk (my love).

2) Development areas - I found out that I really need to work on my anger management issues among other things. I have not done anything about that yet but, I have started to skip getting angry at someone or something. I skip the 1st, 3rd, 5th, etc. times I want to get mad at. It's really temporary but it's working for now.

3) Love - how can Akanksha not be thankful for this. I am in a happy place right now. Putting efforts and reaping benefits; the relationship has never been more kind. Thank you!

4) Standing up - I feel like giving a separate pointer for this topic. This year made me realize that no matter who is in front of me, personally or professionally, I need to stand up for myself. Even if I have to dishonor my promise in point #2, I have to stand up for myself. It has totally worked on my side and am very much comfortable with myself for yelling at people who have wronged me.

5) Job - This deserves to be on the list. We spend more than half of our awake time, working. If we don't like our job then we might as well not get up in the morning. Until July, I was miserable. I hated my job, hated the people and was just waiting to get ANY job. My family and friends were totally against the idea of me quitting a well-paying job but, I finally got it.
Mental health + Job satisfaction > Money + Power

I am happy with my job now. Not afraid of Mondays anymore! :D

    you look so happyly smiling, so I'm sure the year 2017 gave you the best. It was good to quit the job that made you unhappy - I know, that a bad job is able to make the soul sad... I love the color of your pullover - it's so sunny - and the litte children look so nice :-)
