    Feeling Grateful...

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Salinye, Jul 1, 2008.

    I thought I would take a minute to start a thread about the things we feel grateful for. I see a lot of sad comments on this forum about depression and not being happy. So, I thought maybe this might be a good exercise for all.

    Right now, I'm feeling so grateful to be married to my best friend in the whole world. Having found true love is the greatest blessing of my life!

    I'm so grateful for my children. They are inspiring and a source of joy each and every day!

    I'm so grateful for my business even if it is stressful at times keeping me up way too late (like now).

    I'm so grateful for my friends. I have the best there are.

    I'm grateful for my relationship with God.

    I'm grateful for diet cherry pepsi which has kept me on my diet helping me lose 20 pounds in the last 3 months and to be getting close to pre-baby-body WOO HOO!

    I'm thankful for the lovely sunshine we've had lately and that our state is not humid like AUSTIN, which I visited last weekend.

    I'm so very grateful for forums like this that allow me wonderfully needed distractions and enables me to procrastinate at almost 2am when I'm up against a deadline! :D

    I'm grateful for the friendships that can be formed online!

    I'm grateful for belly dancing, my newest addiction.

    I'm grateful to have a healthy body that allows me to take care of my family and enjoy the world I live in.

    I'm grateful for the opportunity to write and share that gift with the world.

    I'm grateful for the internet which provides me countless blessings!

    I'm grateful for other writers who inspire me on a regular basis.

    I'm so grateful for freedoms I all too often take for granted.

    I'm grateful for my life. It's not perfect, but it's me and I'm happy. :0)

    More later...

    Not all of us are naturally happy people and sometimes I guess bad feelings over ride the good.

    I’m grateful I know who I am in life.

    I’m grateful for the music that attunes me to my every mood

    I’m grateful emos aren’t Goths…

    I’m grateful for forests that relax me and make me feel the world really is a pretty place

    I’m grateful for my children even if they do eventually make my hair fall out.

    I’m grateful for my partner who is a friend lover and provider I would be lost with out him

    I’m grateful my friends don’t try to change me and love me for who I am

    I’m grateful for the other morbid people out there that save me from being weird

    I’m grateful for the weekend and the time I spend with my family

    I’m grateful literature, where would I be without it

    I am grateful that I have my loaf and my friends to help me cope when my daughter falls ill. I wouldn't cope very well with the stress and worry if I didn't have so much support from them when it is needed the most.

    I am grateful that I have my children, they are the most precious bundles of joy ever.

    I am grateful for the few honest friends that I have.

    I am grateful that my friends are so understanding and when I try to push them away, they know that there is something wrong and don't let me push them away no matter what.

    I am grateful that there is still non-decaf coffee in the house as it is going to be a long night for me.

    I am grateful for all the good and bad times in my life as they have helped me to become the person that I am and helped me to become much stronger as well.

    I am grateful for the real island I visit, and for the fictional Island I created. They're two of the very few things that have me still holding on.
