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.

I love reading everyone's things they're thankful for - thanks for sharing!

Today mine are:

Sitting by the water, watching the little fish

Strategizing with my psych - two heads are better than one, even when it's just figuring out how to do the most mundane of things that most people don't have trouble doing. It is what it is!

Pink - there's something a little bit self care about wearing something pink on a sh*t day.

Hi Katy good one with the pink. Made me smile 🙂

Grateful for: Recharged phone

Finding a new spot for an old cupboard that suits better and fits really nicely

a few hours of rest when I needed it

Hi all 🙂

For me today, it's:

Someone looking out for me

Free crates of oranges outside the church

The chicken veg soup I'm going to make for dinner on a cold day

Hello Bb,

Today I am thankful for:

1) The four dolphins I stopped & watched during my walk this morning; very calming

2) 10 min yoga for my neck from youtube released oodles of tension.

3) I have given myself permission to do no study at all today...it feels so good, as usually I am thinking I should be at my desk.

Happy weekend folks
