    Im grateful for:

    - Living in a beautiful house that I love

    - Having such a supportive dad who looks after my son on the weekends so I can have some time to catch up with friends and replenish

    - Not having to wear masks outside and being able to go out and have some fun after lockdown ending again

    Hello lovely people,

    It's time for some gratefulness because, you know, “gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues but the parent of all others.” (Marcus Tullius Cicero) :D

    3 things I'm grateful for today:
    -My dad (it's Father's Day today in my home country)
    -New and old friends (quality over quantity)
    -The new "wall art" (a couple of peace doves, for real) that I got delivered this weekend and managed to hang using only white tac (they look like they're flying in V-formation). It was quite the task but it's done now and I love them, so I'm very grateful for the whole thing

    :)

    I'll tag some of you @PnorkelPW @ScorpionPW @Deyfhob @Alvarosyd @Simply me @Shar @Gizelle @Katiee @pdm411 @Shar @User 60cdf8d4448df

    Today im grateful for...
    *the Earth she from who everything sources, and returns to....
    *worms, who can turn food scraps to fertilisers for our garden, and have the trick to simply become 2 worms when wounded by a spade....
    *Trees n green folk without whom there is no breath....

    3 things I'm grateful for today:

    - Gyms being open so I could go for a swim before work again........it's been 5 weeks because of injury and lockdown and it really affected my headspace............today was a step - or should I say stroke :lol: - in the right direction

    - Being able to admit my mistakes..........I was able to own some behaviour today that played out at the end of last week..........instead of spending the near future in an uncertain headspace I can freely move on in peace

    - My journal...........it's alowed me to recognise where I've veered off track and what action I need to take to correct it


    To summarise.............Exercise........Honesty with self and others.........Reflection
