    Hello everyone...

    Dools..I’m so sorry your previous counsellor said that to you...That is just so wrong😡..No excuses are good enough for treating you that way...

    Today I’m thankful for...

    1....My colouring book and pencils..

    2....My bird feeder..so many cockatoos were eating from it today..

    3.....enough motivation to cook chicken stir fry...it was yummy..

    Thankful for the kindness of a total stranger in the car ahead of me at the drive thru - she paid for my coffee. I wish I could’ve thanked her. I know you’re out there somewhere, lovely stranger!

    Thankful for some purple flowers along the driveway.

    Thankful for some rain today.

    I am thankful for the users of beyond blue forums, they give so much and ask little in return.

    I am thankful for Buffy warming my feet with her head resting upon them.

    I am thankful still, since Monday when an altruistic family gifted me an iphone 8 plus.

    Today I am grateful for:

    1) The sun! I missed it so much (even though it's going to be cold for the rest of the week but I will look forward to sunnier/warmer days soon)

    2) I felt happy today

    3) We celebrated Father's Day late because it was my mum's birthday last week we wanted to focus on that. My dad is such an amazing father!

    I am thankful the world trade towers 911 event did not cost even more lives than it did.

    I am thankful that I'm living in Australia.

    I am thankful that we tried, and not gracious that we did not try well enough.

    Today I am thankful for:

    1) being able to finish work early when I wasn't feeling well. Sometimes I have a bad habit of trying to push through even if I am in pain (I had a migraine)

    2) for my friends, family, partner and dog

    3) that I wasn't feeling anxious today
