Three things to be thankful for today

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.

Hi lovely people 🙂

* getting what I needed, not what I wanted

* bad thoughts coming, not acting on them

* people who "get stuff"

Me again... Today's 3 are:

My bed


My shakti mat

Today I'm thankful for

A warm house

Warm clothes



Being still alive



Today I am thankful for:

1) That I am still aware that I have things to be thankful for, and to know to look for those positive elements in this day.

2) The view of the garden from my desk, it really brings me peace and calm

3) household gadgets that help us with all the mundane tasks, leaving us free to invest our efforts elsewhere.
