    In the context of having nearly icey cold hands, a fair nights sleep, an aching jaw and feeling anger...

    I am thankful I found yet another complaint process.

    I am thankful I can breath deeply in and deeply out.

    I am thankful the tension in my neck muscles is not lessened.

    Calling in sick to work, & the boss being totally understanding when I explained was struggling with my mental health

    Boss then messaging me asking if I wanted to be removed from tomorrow’s roster too (yes please!)

    Laying on the lounge, snuggled under a blankets & watching 90’s rom coms

    Hi to all who sail thru, I'm thankful for being able to forgive and release an awful experience. I am thankful for the child who always discretely low waves at me because we share the awful experience. I am thankful that today I was given the choice to be able to repay and reward that child. Sometimes real goodness comes out of adversity.
