    Today I am grateful for:

    - the sunshine

    - my dog (who's happy even in day 300+ of Melbourne lockdown!)

    - the delicous sandwich from a store near the beach

    Simple things can make all the difference.

    These are amazing, each and every one was so inspiring

    I am grateful for

    Water

    Being confident to say no, I don't want to discuss that topic today as it's too much

    That I have Netflix and can watch so many shows, and that Netflix has a feel-good section, so I canfind fluffy goodness to zen-out to.
