    This weekend I am grateful for

    - My family and the support and love they provide

    - My home, being able to have a space of my own to focus on myself and my needs

    - My work, being able to work in a space that I find really supportive and allows me to meet and interact with some of the most amazing and courageous people I will meet.

    How about everyone else? What are you grateful for?

    I loved reading your gratitude lists @Judas, @Iwillbeok amd @Lhiver...One thing they all have in common is it seems to all be the simple things which I love. It's so easy to forget how wonderful the simple things are, to take them for granted so it's nice to pause and remember where I've come from.

    Today I'm grateful for...

    - Being able to have a break to play Uno with my colleagues spontaneously in the middle of the day today

    - Being able to be there and present for a close friend who is going through some hard stuff

    - That I have the ability to pull myself up when I'm losing patience, own up to being grumpy and redirect my intentions with my son

    Some great gratitude lists there...........three things I'm grateful for are:

    - I'm acting manager at work for the next three months

    - living near the beach so i can go for walks in the winter sun like I did yesterday

    - getting back in the pool in the mornings after a 6 week lay off. After three days I can feel the difference in my daily outlook............now I just have to maintain it again

    - My girlfriend and how amazingly generous and thoughtful she is

    Things that I am grateful for this week include:
    - Being healthy. I've been sick lately but am feeling much better now so I'm just happy to be feeling well again
    - Living in a time with access to interactive and enjoyable video games
    - Having a stable roof over my head, without having to worry about risk of homelessness.
