Three things to be thankful for today

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.

Thankful for:

- A few days off work. A chance to breathe, re-set and relax.

- A hot shower, winter food and a comfortable bed.

- My home - tiny and modest but so warm and cosy. It embraces you like a big hug as you walk through the door. Sometimes I feel so grateful that I press my hand to its walls and thank it for looking after me and keeping me safe šŸ™‚

Could you find thanks in some of those small things we take for granted? Watching a show you enjoy? A good coffee? A hot shower or that feeling of getting into bed and drifting off to sleep? I hope you have found some of these little things to be grateful for over the past couple of days šŸ™‚

Yeh I can honestly do that too.

I am thankful the penultimate stage of the tour de france is on sbs tonight.

I am thankful this particular coffee is still hot.

I am grateful that I can successfully lie to an abuser to avoid being hurt by them.

I am grateful that I can lie about being sorry to this person, so that I can avoid conflict with them.

I am grateful that I am not sorry for things outside of my control.

I am thankful that I have discovered the aussie political schema of the non-apology apology.

I appreciate that I have fresh air to breath.

My three things that I am thankful for:

1) Being with my family and friends during this lockdown

2) My health

3) That I have food and shelter
