    Three things I’m grateful for today are:

    - Whatever power it is that’s helped me drag myself out of bed each day this week and keep going. It’s been a really tough week for a lot of reasons but staying in bed wouldn’t have been the answer. As hard as it is, it’s important to keep pushing at times. It can be hard to know when to keep pushing and when to stop at times though.

    - For the patience to take my time before responding to people. If I’d responded earlier in the week I could quite easily have made things worse. Now I can see better ways to communicate and approach things

    - For the roof over my head, the food in my belly, and the clothes on my back. It’s important to recognise and appreciate the simple things because they’re not always simple……….or always accessible
