    I love reading everyone's things they're thankful for - thanks for sharing!

    Today mine are:

    Sitting by the water, watching the little fish

    Strategizing with my psych - two heads are better than one, even when it's just figuring out how to do the most mundane of things that most people don't have trouble doing. It is what it is!

    Pink - there's something a little bit self care about wearing something pink on a sh*t day.

    Finding a new spot for an old cupboard that suits better and fits really nicely

    Hello Bb,

    Today I am thankful for:

    1) The four dolphins I stopped & watched during my walk this morning; very calming

    2) 10 min yoga for my neck from youtube released oodles of tension.

    3) I have given myself permission to do no study at all today...it feels so good, as usually I am thinking I should be at my desk.

    Happy weekend folks

    Hi lovely people :)

    * getting what I needed, not what I wanted

    * bad thoughts coming, not acting on them

    * people who "get stuff"

    Hello,

    Today I am thankful for:

    1) That I am still aware that I have things to be thankful for, and to know to look for those positive elements in this day.

    2) The view of the garden from my desk, it really brings me peace and calm

    3) household gadgets that help us with all the mundane tasks, leaving us free to invest our efforts elsewhere.
