Three things to be thankful for today

Champion Alumni
Champion Alumni

Some days it is really hard to find anything to be thankful for when we feel overcome by the darkness and fog of depression. If I look hard enough, I can find something to be thankful for.

I would like to encourage others to write down three things they are thankful for, and to realise there is a sense of hope available to us all. Sometimes it is just a little hard to find!

So my three things for today are:

1: The lovely singing of birds in the morning as they welcome in the new day

2: The ability to read and write

3: A lovely hot shower.

Wishing all the "family" in BB Land a day full of noticing the nice things in life. Kind regards to you all, from Dools.

Hello BB peeps,

Today I am thankful for:

1. A clean house (I feel so much more at peace and in control when the house is correct)

2. The lake near my house. It is only 2 minutes walk and is like another world so it gets me out of my head a bit. I see ducks and seagulls mostly but sometimes pelicans, herons, oystercatchers, terns and lapwings.

3. Chocolate (naughty but worth it)
