I am grateful for my tenacity and patience because nothing else will get me through today.
I'm also grateful for glittery skirts and Adidas trainers.

My lovely mum.

She knew I was planning to buy the Fantastic Beasts DVD the moment it came out so not only did she buy it for me today, since she bought it from Tescos it came with a big free 'the making of' book!!!! (which has some really tasty Percival photos in)



What an absolute ledge.

My mum got this excellent deal at tesco today as well, she was doubly happy because she's obsessed with all things behind the scenes and 'making ofs' as well

Even though he has his own issues he's put up with my drama and issues for years now and he's the only person I've ever been close to who hasn't given up on me and walked away when times are tough, not even when I've tried to push him. He's been there for me recently during what have been the darkest hours of my life to date and I'd never have sought help without the push he gave me.

I love you, Emps.

Sorry for such a soppy post!
He sounds very awesome and probs real tall and handsome.

The people I work with.

This week I've had three gifts of food/cake and two hugs, all from different colleagues. No special occasion - this week is not even that unusual.

Reading some of the 'work' threads on this forum makes me realise how incredibly lucky I am.

^ That sounds like a lovely environment to work in

It's my birthday, (yay!), so I'm not only grateful for having survived another year but my very poorly cat has held on and is still here to celebrate with me and for that, I feel truly blessed.

@ Kooky Monster. Happy belated birthday. I hope it was a good one. I'm glad you could spend it with your much-loved cat.

@ Muggins. That is indeed a beautiful message. I know you've been having a tough time, but it's lovely to see that you have such a fantastic family around you. It sounds like you are indeed blessed by having them, but I agree with Clementine that they are also blessed in having you.

Have a happy birthday!

Today I told myself I was grateful for all my suffering and pain, even grateful for social anxiety and depression. I know that sounds crazy, but I think there is something counter-intuitive about it. I've been suffering so much I have been really worried I'm going crazy, as though I'm only a whisker away from acting upon my rage, suicidal or homicidal impulses. There was a strange feeling of peace that came over me today as I thanked life for my suffering, hoping that one day, even though it had alluded me so far, my suffering will help me grow and I will be able to help others.

I've got a job interview on the 4th July, and I've just been invited to another job interview on the 10th July. It's red panty night tonight. Hype.

^ oh congratulations Jam!

I'm grateful today for boobs. They're useful for saving food. I just dropped a blob of clotted cream on one and licked it straight back off.
It's probably a good job I don't eat in restaurants.
