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.

Hello folks,

Choclateicecream I get very excited when seedlings emerge too!

1) juicy oranges in season now and delicious

2) my mum who is vulnerable has now been vaccinated against covid, which eases my mind.

3) my son was happy and cooperative this morning, making the morning easy

Hi peeps,

Today I am thankful for:

1. delicious riverland dried apricots, so moorish, taste like sunshine

2. a walk near the lake with my mother. She really struggled and got a bit stuck, and I felt sad, but I have to remind myself to be thankful that she still can walk around and get that far, as there will be a day she can't.

3. the dragonboaters that train on the lake nearby, I enjoy watching them, and love the drums when there is a tournament. I have tried it, it is a lot of fun, one day I will have the time to be out there too!

I love reading everyone's things that bring them joy - thankyou!

Youtube - great for learning how to fix things!

Nice people - some people just want to lift others up

Semester end - no more uni assignments for now 🙂

Today I am thankful for:

1) My resilience in the face of a very heavy work-load for assignments. I worked for 12 hours yesterday! I don't usually pat myself on the back but I'm trying to learn to!

2) I am thankful for that it is almost uni holidays

3) I am grateful for my amazing friends, family, partner and pet
