Gratitude List 19/03/2019

‘It’s like whack-a-mole’

Someone said that this evening and I can relate so much! It seems that as soon as I knock one thing on the head, another one pops up! And another! And another! To be honest, I am not complaining. It’s a game I am happy to play all my life because it will keep me on my toes and keep me improving as a person.

Today I am grateful I took another leap of faith.

Today I am grateful I took another first step in the right direction.

Today I am grateful for the unity and the similarities.

Today I am grateful for the friendly face.

Today I am grateful I could share my pain.

Today I am grateful for the knowledge and wisdom.

Today I am grateful it felt good.

Today I am grateful I am honest enough to admit it didn’t feel great.

Today I am grateful I am willing to give it a chance anyway.

Today I am grateful for my current strength.

Gratitude List 18/03/2019: Take the time.

Gratitude List 18/03/2019

Take the time.

My list today refers to simple every-day moments. The reason why they appear on my gratitude list is because they haven’t always played a part in my life. My illness was all consuming. Including time. I would rarely take the time to do anything else. Today I have the time, so why not use it.

Today I am grateful I put my phone down, turned the TV off and took the time to play charades with my daughter.

Today I am grateful I took the time to read before going to sleep.

Today I am grateful I stopped what I was doing and took the time to take a call from a friend looking for advice.

Today I am grateful I didn’t act on impulse and instead took the time to choose a healthy breakfast.

Today I am grateful I took the time to say Grace before eating said healthy breakfast.

Today I am grateful I took the time to wish my dad and nephew a happy birthday.

Today I am grateful I stopped thinking about what I wanted to say and took the time to give my girlfriend my full attention when she was speaking to me.

Today I am grateful I recognised a void and took the time to reach out and connect with like-minded fellows, family and friends.

Today I am grateful I took the time to pray and meditate before trying to help my son.

Today I am grateful I grasped the opportunity whilst commuting and took the time to do this list.
