I give my friend rides to Tai Chi as she can no longer drive. I suspect she would not be able to go if I didn't drive her and the Tai Chi is so important for those of us who are getting ricketty.
It makes me feel good that I can still do something for someone else even as I am kind of limited in what I can do.

I helped organize an event at work. I didn't think it was much, but they did.
I felt good! Though I also noticed I minimized it, so I am letting it sink in now.

I am thankful to this day. It was calm for the most part. I don't hesitate to do things my way. I realized I'm like the only one in thousands who bikes to work. Its only a mile long, it wasn't that hard after I started to pedal slowly and didn't rush like I did before. I had a Work out today, it was good. I got these indian classical music on my computer, which is awesome. its called "SAAZ - A Timeless Celebration Of Indian Classical Music (16 CD Pack)" if any 1 is interested in that sorta thing. Figured out how to speed up my laptop....using pendrive as speedboost.... I am thankful to my mom, my grandparents and my family members. I am grateful for their love. And also to God for being kind to me.

I am grateful for my awareness of my feelings and reactions.
It helped me focus on the present and how I can gradually let go of a negative experience.

My daughter(10) and son(7) showed me love by ordering presents from Amazon on their own to surprise me for my birthday. The presents they picked out made me really happy because they were very well thought out and reflected that they know the authentic me. My children truly know me and love me and that is the the best gift in life.
They made me feel loved, important, and special.

I was having a difficult time activating my new cell phone. I took it into the Verizon store and the worker there was so gracious and personable. He had my phone up and running in minutes. He found a connection between us and seemed interested in my well being. Yes, he did his job but he did it in an enthusiastic and joyful manner. It was an uplifting addition to my morning.
It was a pleasure to connect with a stranger who took a possible mundane activity and turned it into a delight. I left the store with my phone working perfectly and my heart beating joyfully.

Research.
One particular benefit of a research study is that people who leave their phone in another room fall asleep faster and sleep better than those who don't. I've only been doing this for three nights and it has made a dramatic difference!

I spent some extra time babysitting so they could go to an unexpected special occasion
I felt very appreciated and so happy I could be of help and also, so very thankful to have a grand daughter and to leave nearby to be able to be with her.

I posted on a group in FB and received a lot of support and "thanks for sharing"
I felt closer to the group and determined to keep going, I felt great!

I am in a particular hard time now in my life and I reach out to my friends for support and they never fail me. All of them give me immense love and words of encouragement when needed.
The words of support from them lets me continue what I am doing with more energy and determination.

My friend Anna left me a lovely voice message thanking me for my support while she was living in London. She said she looked at me like an older sister, somebody listens and says that everything will be ok. I hadn't even realise that I did that.
I felt really pleased to have heard from her and felt much closer to her than I had in recent months.

I met with an old friend over Thanksgiving who thanked me for taking time to visit her
It was a short thank you and this is the first I've really let it sink in

I'm grateful for random happenstance.
I'm so lucky to have been born a white person in the United States into a middle class family in a good neighborhood. I have not been traumatized weather disasters, poor health, or by bombs in my part of the world. I will never understand the full depth of the privilege this has afforded me.

I shared a story about how the prayers of my grand nieces and nephews helped my nephew to know exactly what to do to miraculously revive my completely dead phone. Nothing had worked prior to the prayers of those little ones. I told my church congestion about how I believe miracles large and small occur often in our lives. The trick is learning to recognize and to be grateful for them when they do.
After, I had several people thank me for sharing. Hearing of my experience helped them think of miracles in their lives that they hadn’t previously recognized. I was so grateful for their comments, texts, and phone calls as upon returning to my seat, I had immediately started doubting my choice to tell my story in front of so many people. Their thanks validated the efficacy of my decision.

I love the feeling of accomplishment.

Mi hijo nuevamente habla conmigo de manera abierta, en confianza, sin afanes; y eso lo agradezco infinitamente porque para mi es muy importante conocerlo en su proceso de crecimiento
Lo que hace devuelve la confianza en mi misma. Es una imagen de mi misma que me agrada, la de una persona cercana en quien se puede confiar y con quien es grato hablar

Mis padres me dieron educación en la universidad que yo misma elegí
tuve la oportunidad de ampliar mi mente, de conocer muchas personas edificantes; también abrí con esto la posibilidad de viajar dentro y fuera del país

I'm in the middle of finishing an assignment for university and the last couple of months have been very difficult emotionally so I'm way behind schedule. My lovely husband has been looking after me, listening to and making me breakfast and lunch.
It made me realise how truly blessed I am to have him in my life - and I was able to focus 100% on my work.

A friend called just to say she has been thinking about me today and to let me know she was available if I needed anything or just to talk (recent big life change for me).
I can't begin to say how good she made me feel, knowing she's there.

Inquieta, no sabía si estaba haciendo lo correcto o no
