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.

I'd have to say Mrs C, without whose love, patience and hard work I'd be in a right pickle

Kept my evening meal down - yes an unusual thing to mention but made a big difference to me:)

(and for the cynics amongst you: no, booze had nothing to do with previos days:)

I'm glad to hear you have a supportive, patient wife Croix. Unfortunately many people don't have that which is a shame.

How cute about the Cat, and glad to hear you could keep your meal down.

Thankful for

visiting my child who I have not seen in 9 months

catching up with old friends

trying not to feel too tired and overwhelmed by all this socialising.

Today I'm thankful for

1) people who remind me that I am worthwhile and I do have a purpose, who share their kindness and care with me

2) my sister who reached out and gave me support and a long chat

3) nature and the simple joy hearing a bird song can make

Wishing you all moments where you can be thankful and show gratitude.

Hugs to all who like the thought of a cyber hug.
