Thanks for the welcome!

Today I'm grateful for:

not being in any physical pain
my lemon verbena bush doing so well and smelling so wonderful
my friend, Jodie, whom I called late last night who listened to my woes
the TV show, So You Think You Can Dance, which inspires me weekly
being back on the Barbara Sher website after being gone for about 10 years

Today I'm grateful for:

living in California where the weather is so, so, so nice!
being on day-light savings time so that it stays light until 8 pm.
for Mr. Boo, my roommate's dog, who is my daily companion.
for my house/cat sitting gig, coming up at the end of the month. I miss having cats so I will get to hang out with cats for a full week!
for the public library system, which allows me to read hundreds more books than I could ever afford to buy.

Today I’m grateful for:

  • My bike not being stolen: I went to the bike storage for the first time in 10 months and couldn’t find it. Panicked, but eventually found it in the back behind my SO’s bike.
  • Having a bike: subway was shut down in the downtown core (where I live) and had to get to Koreatown to pick something up for the SO. Bike: cheap, fast, reliable, healthy.
  • How ethnically diverse and cosmopolitan this city is so that I can pick up two onigiri (or kinbap in Korean) at the Korean grocery store, then go get a really decent cappuccino just down the street, and a fabulous butter chicken plate on the way home.
  • My cat: for really liking me even when I’m on the computer ignoring her

Hi. I'm dealing with some real heavy-duty depression so I think it's important for me to post here today.

Let's see:

The weather is lovely - warm with a gentle breeze
I'm not homeless - yet. I have a place to live today and I'm grateful for that.
I'm physically healthy.
I appreciate my self-hypnosis and meditation CD's. I can put them on when I'm depressed and take them off and be less depressed.
I'm grateful that my CD player is working so I can listen to my CD's.
I'm grateful for meeting someone over the phone and through email who MIGHT be able to help me with my looming possible homelessness.
I'm grateful for books.
I'm grateful that there is a beautiful church I can go to that has a mass at 5:00 pm in the evening. I'm not a morning person so I'm happy that I can go to church in the evening.
I love my roommate's dog. And I'm grateful that I will be living here for the next 3 weeks and be able to hold him and rock him for 3 more weeks.
I'm grateful for being alive and for the fact that life still offers me POSSIBILITIES.
