GRATITUDE JANUARY 2017

Postby inspiresuccess » Wed Jan 04, 2017 10:34 am

I'm grateful for knitting. It gives me something to focus on and something to do with my hands. This helps keep anxiety and depression at bay.

I'm grateful for sunny weather, for the same reason as above.

I'm grateful for this thread because it reminds me to look at my life and see what I could be grateful for.

I'm grateful for the birds that fly past my window at this time of year. It makes me smile every time I see them in flight.

I'm grateful for being fairly healthy with a minimum of pain.

I'm grateful for acupuncture, which I will be getting again starting next week.

I'm grateful for music.

I'm grateful for the Barbara Sher Boards. Writing about my life and goals and getting responses from people here is making a huge difference in seeing myself in a new and different way.

After many, many years of illness, poverty, and survival, I'm slowly attempting to regain my real self again. My plans of playing piano and guitar, designing knitwear, having a social life, and doing artwork seem like they might be possible when I read what I've written and read people's responses, support and ideas.

Thank you, everyone, for helping me get back on track again. After all, that's what Barbara's books are about -- getting back to living the life you love. It's a rocky road for me and I'm so glad to have fellow travelers with me.

I'm grateful for my friend, Christine, who has stepped in to help when my therapist wouldn't.

I'm grateful for Lens Crafters who has partnered with a local charity to pay for eye glasses for low income people like me. I just got my pair of bifocals and I'm so glad. I had my old glasses for several years and couldn't afford new ones. It was getting dangerous to drive because I couldn't read street signs. Also, I love to read and it's so clear to read! Amazing!

I'm grateful for the creativity of dreams. I had an amazing dream last night that reminded me of an art category I've wanted to explore for years but never did. I hope I continue to get dreams that will guide me in this direction. Finally! To start doing artwork that I've only "dreamed" of doing!
