An attitude of gratitude

I thought I’d do a little exercise of listing what I am grateful for today. I have a ton of things to be grateful for, so here goes.

my family
my health
my dog
that I am alive
a hot shower
food on the table
a warm house
my volunteer job
a good mental health team
my therapist
my PA
Coffee and tea to drink
That I am not currently in a war torn zone
My independence
Smiles and laughter
That I am loved

What are you grateful for?

  1. I am grateful for my kid, cats, health, roof overhead, car to drive, power, heat, water, internet, food…

    The one thing you have that I honestly would murder for…is a shower. I just can’t stand baths, at all, so I find myself more resentful than grateful that all we have is a bathtub.

    Bathing is just so difficult with depression and a shower at least is quick and easy. Baths take so much energy and time for me. I want in, I want body and hair clean, and I want out. I don’t want to have to keep adjusting the temp, filling the tub enough so we’re not shivering in the cool air…

    It really is one of those things that seem trivial until you’re on this side of it and it’s not really trivial at all if it makes your daily life more difficult.

    Leave it to me to leave a negative on a positive post, I am bloody well gifted.

    I am grateful for you and Nitro-you have been good friends to me and Spook. 🙂

    See…I can be positive, it is a miracle!
