Sometimes when we feel it least we should seek to find things to be grateful for more, not just to acknowledge it, but to feel it, to truly force ourselves into choosing gratitude regardless of circumstance.
This week I have been feeling challenged, ungrateful, frustrated, and on top of that I have also dropped down a dose on my ADs. So add to that mix ‘depressed’ too. Yeah, it’s sure been a barrel of fun around here recently.
So as an exercise in preserving not only my sanity, but my sense of precariously balanced perspective, I give you :: my meditation list of things to be grateful for…
1 :: Having some clean, peaceful corners to truly relax in
2 :: Brainless crafting for simple pleasure
3 :: A scone recipe I finally like! Yes! Coming Soon insha’allah…
4 :: Playing with fabric
5 :: Gaming with the babes
6 :: Watching the games they play without me
7 :: Cold, fizzy, elderflower. You don’t need alcohol to appreciate a quiet five minutes…
8 :: My inventors and their inventions (a tank gun barrel. I’m so proud *ahem*)
9 :: Being surrounded by happy little people
10 :: And YOU, of course! For the people who take the time to write me, comment, soothe my worries and ask how I am. I am always grateful for friends.
And you? What ten things are you grateful for right now?
