Gratitude Mini-Challenge


Heidi

Recommended Posts

I am grateful for my partner being a very grounded, rational, and calm human being, and being fore-sighted enough to have been saving money and saving all his annual and sick leave the entire time he has been working, because despite him being made redundant yesterday he is rather chipper about not having to work his crap job anymore and we are still financially stable for the next 6 months. 

 

4/21.

whoops, missed a day.

 

I am grateful for days where I am not required to do anything. First weekend in a month I'm not required to do anything roller derby related.

Grateful for my understanding and caring boss letting me work my way back into working, and makes sure I'm taking anti-inflammatories and icing my ankle to help it survive working on my feet.

I'm actually posting a daily gratitude in my thread as part of my challenge so it was a nice surprise to find my way to this mini-challenge and read some really great things about my fellow rebels.

Hi, @mom2sjm! Welcome to the challenge. Feel free to share your gratitude with us as well as in your thread -- it's been inspiring for us all to see what goodness in going on around us.

What a wonderful set of posts to come back to! Thank you to everyone!

This morning, I'm grateful for the calm that comes from working gently with myself -- the ex was pretty horrific this weekend and tried all sorts of power grab and controlling tactics, but by the end of the weekend, all was right with my world once more. I even managed to simply ride out a nasty stomach issue from eating something that was a bit off.

I'm grateful for opportunities to walk in faith and trust. 5/21

I'm grateful that I'm able to stay home sick for a week when I'm sick, instead of having to come into the office.

 

 

So sorry to hear you are sick! Feel better soon, and I'm glad you get to stay home and rest.

I've also been lurking. I'm supposed to be doing gratitude statements as part of my therapy homework... But, uh, yeah, not been happening. Oopsie. 

 

And I second the assassin mini. It's like 50% yoga.

I've definitely missed a few days of this... Rather than bog myself down trying to remember the past four or five days, I'll stick with yesterday and today.

 

Yesterday I was grateful for the sun coming out for the first time in forever, and for the warmth that finally lifted the winter chill from my flat. 4/21

 

Today I'm grateful for customer service folks (for undisclosed reasons). They definitely need more love than they get! 5/21

Ahhh weekends, my nemesis to posting. Missing a few days, but I am incredibly grateful for my partner. Something kind of awful happened on Saturday and my partner was supportive, available, and has been since. He always is, but this was just kind of another shining example of how awesome he is to have in my life. 3/21

I am grateful for quick oats. Speeding up my morning and making me feel snuggly warm when it's raining out. Which its going to be for the next 8 months xD

Good morning, Druids! 

This morning I'm grateful for the rain that has come in the past three days to soak the ground when I planted some seeds, interspersed with some real, soil warming sunshine through the day. I think it's going to be a great year for peas. This morning there was a beautiful thunderstorm around 5, and I lay in my bed listening to it, enjoying that I had the luxury of listening and waiting. 6/21

 

Life is good.

Namaste, y'all.

I'm thankful that i faced resistance today and won.  I looked up the WOD before I left for my crossfit class and my heart sunk when I saw snatches and running.  hate snatches.  hate running.  my mind immediately started to try to talk me out of going "you can go tomorrow, you can make it up on friday, maybe go three times next week..."  but.  I am working really hard on fighting resistance and so I said to myself - tuesday is your crossfit day, you are going.  today.  you can do it.  and I did.  and yes, it sucked, but only for 7 minutes and then it was over.

Thankful for an unexpected day off from work and deciding not to spend it at home cleaning the house like I normally would, but instead going to the Seattle Goodwill Outlet to hunt for a bunch of different things I'll need for an upcoming art class.  I found parking which is a miracle in itself and everything on my list (!!) for $1.50 total (at the outlet you pay by the pound)!!
