Druid Mini: Daily Gratitude Statements


spooky

Recommended Posts

Hey friends!

 

If you choose to participate, here's a mini for this challenge :) 

 

Gratitude statements are a great way to focus on the positive things in your day, or even to reframe tough moments as lessons. Gratitude is strongly associated with improved mental health and happiness, something we all deserve. 

 

So, each day (or whenever you feel the urge) share one to however-many-strikes-you gratitude statements in this thread :D

 

Here are mine from yesterday: 

 

Gratitude:

I am grateful for soft evening air

I am grateful for extra sleep

I am grateful for a good brain day :) 

 

Looking forward to sharing with you all!

Ok, here goes:

 

I am grateful that my wife and children love me enough that they want me to become a better person than put up with my self-righteous bs. :-|
 

I'm grateful some blocked biological plumbing recently became unblocked. (Not meaning to be crude, but when I'm not feeling well, I tend to be a flaming a**h**e.)  :-)

 

I'm grateful that I finally have a stable job and housing situation.  (This has been an issue for me for many years.) :-)

I'd already set this as part of my challenge this time around, so I'll share what I've done thus far:

 

Tuesday:

I am grateful for the cool and quiet of summer evenings.

I am grateful for the time I still have left with my family, be they animal or human.

I am grateful for texts from my daughter, who shares my sense of humour and makes me smile.

 

Wednesday:

I am grateful for sunsets, and that in the summer the sun sets directly across the road from my doorstep. I love sunsets.

I am grateful that I got to see my kids in their new school uniforms, all smart and ready to start this morning.

I am grateful for the happy expressions on my dogs' faces as they played in the garden while I worked.

 

Today:

I am grateful for sunny evening drives, and music which stirs happy memories.

I am grateful for the opportunity to learn new skills.

I am grateful for Bourbon Creams - moderation, however, is a work in progress.

This morning I am grateful for the sauna, which gives me a space to practice meditation and purification at the same time.

I am grateful for the dark before the dawn, with its time of still contemplation.

I am grateful for the electricity to heat the water for tea.

Haha. I'm grateful for those too. For me, moderation is a bit easier because it's an hour drive in the opposite direction I usually go. I go the direction of bourbon cream about once a month so I have to make it last. :) 

 

Today, I'm grateful for paint - without it, I wouldn't be able to create.

I had this confusion on another thread. I'm guessing your bourbon cream is the liqueur. In the UK, bourbon creams are a type of chocolate biscuit. :)

 

Gratitude

I am grateful for time and space to unwind and be creative.

I am grateful for not being my own worst critic and reminding myself that Average is the New Perfect.

I am grateful for podcasts which make me laugh on my commute.

This morning what am I grateful for?

 

On the surface I'm grateful that my wife let me order the Indian Clubs I want this week.

 

I'm grateful it's not raining as I sit here waiting for the bus to work, just overcast.

 

On a deeper level I'm grateful that the other week my wife and my kids confronted me that my drinking was getting excessive and hurting the family, and I'm very grateful that I've been able to keep myself under control since.

I did mean the liqueur. However, the grocery store that carries the liqueur also has the bourbon creams you described. We tried them for our New Year's Eve tradition of tasting International Foods. They were right next to the jammie dodgers and the digestives. :)

 

Today I'm grateful for the rain because it prevents me from overdoing things.
