Thankful for the positive feelings of satisfaction when considering some useful projects implemented at work.
While work can enjoy stressful or a struggle, it is good to remember that it also provides some opportunities for moments of delight!

I finally made some friends at my workplace. I am really thankful for them existing!
It doesn't feel so terrible coming to work everyday anymore because at least for part of it, I get to see some friendly faces that I know have my back!

For a low stress and somewhat productive work day.
They are not all like this, and it is good to take notice.

A chance to walk in the warm sun in the middle of the day
It was good to be present in the moment I was in and out of the closed in floor I work on.

I’m not sure what I did but my bosses got me a nice bar of soap and attached a kind note to it saying they appreciate my talent and presence at work.
I felt so grateful to work for such kind employers!

That N and E got along so swimmingly at our yoga class.
What a surprise! It was a gift and I did not have to "negotiate" behaviors. Who knew? Phew.

I am thankful to have read this poem in a difficult time: You do not have to be good. You do not have to walk on your knees for a hundred miles through the desert repenting. You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves. Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine. Meanwhile the world goes on. Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain are moving across the landscapes, over the prairies and the deep trees, the mountains and the rivers. Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air, are heading home again. Whoever you are, no matter how lonely, the world offers itself to your imagination, calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting - over and over announcing your place in the family of things. Mary Oliver Wild Geese
This poem gave me perspective on the greater movement of the world and my role in it

My grandmother helped me feel a part of my family. I’ve often felt different than my siblings and my mom, but she was similar to me in indescribable ways. That helped me to feel like I belonged. I miss her. She is now gone from us and she’s loved.

A friend reached out to me for support.
It reminded me how beautiful it is to be trusted with another person’s vulnerability (and, by extension, to be brave with my own).

My brother-in-law's roommate invited me out on his boat on the lake this weekend to experience an absolutely beautiful day and some amazing scenery.
I was able to get out of my house and had a wonderful day filled with joy. I experienced the outdoors on a hot Arizona summer day and saw some amazing scenery.

It gave me the wisdom and energy to return the favor to my partner today.

Dat ik in de Dreambuilding groep zit met vrouwen die ik kan vertrouwen.
Ik kan open en eerlijk zijn over mijn gevoelens.

During a heart to heart talk, someone else's wisdom and emotional knowledge helped me put words to emotions and helped me discover I never realized what PRESENCE was.
It opened my eyes to see the root of my memory problem, the source of unresolved resentment from others, and allows me to ask forgiveness to those I was not present for.
