Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful for…

– having my own car
– kisses from lily
– boundaries
– reviving my electric blanket
– chats with my sister lying on my bed
– the block being back on tv
– my psychologist turning the lights out because the brightness hurts my eyes
– quiet hours
– getting paid
– trusting, and being trusted
– tentative planning for a sisterly roadtrip down the great ocean road
– that first cup of tea of the day
– paw paw ointment
– red capsicum & fresh rice noodles

– this sky.

Thankful Thursday

Today I am grateful for:

– my incredibly comfortable and warm bed when it’s cold outside
– amazing online resources
– and having access to them
– having friends who text me just to check whether I’ve gotten out of bed
– (and then understand and empathise when I explain how difficult it is)
– feeling less alone
– being able to share opportunities for change with others
– being part of an amazing organisation making real change for young people
– a quote from a young person on a forum we ran on challenging negative thinking tonight – “I’m EXCITED to change my negative thinking”
– pulling some things out of my cupboard to take away to work next week, and the fact that the idea of going to work makes me excited (yes I have a wonderful job)
– my kitten keeping my feet warm
– the knowledge that tomorrow is a new day, and I will try again
