Meditation. I woke up on the wrong side of the bed feeling sad and sick with what has happened but didn't want to start my day that way so I meditated, twice actually.
The first meditation wasn't quite enough but the second truly allowed me a different frame of mind and now I am ready to welcome this beautiful Sunday into being. It's cold and dreary outside, just as a Sunday before Thanksgiving should be. I am pumped to finish my theories paper and eat tiramisu my dad made!

I am so grateful that my family is healthy and even though we won’t be with extended family at Thanksgiving, all the extended family are also healthy. I thought about this on my beautiful walk today with my friend, marveling at the beauty around me. So grateful.
I felt so grateful that mid November is so gloriously beautiful this year when we could be forced inside by cold weather. And the feeling of gratitude for health of my family is very deep.

I had a long and exhausting day and after that day I could relax in the evening and have a long sleep. It may seem a simple privilege but I know that many people don't have this possibility, they are tired and have no chance to rest...
I was reminded that those things I take for granted in fact are a big priviledge. I feel blessed that I can relax when I need it.

I was reminded of a song I hear last year at a crucial time in my life and hearing it again now, with what I’m going through, is very powerful to me.
It reminded me that I always knew what was coming and in many ways, I tried to prepare as best I could. I’m better for it and it’s a beautiful and apt song for me at this time.

West Sacramento, CA, USA: Wishing all of you Thnx4 brothers and sisters bonus gratitude on Thanksgiving Day wherever and however you experience it.
May happiness chase after you, and for those times when it invariably does not, may you find the equanimity to be accepting of the way things are until those challenging moments pass. They will. Be at peace.

Grateful to have experienced some relief of the anxieties about impending changes and all that they entail. Things no longer feel so insurmountable as they did only a day ago.
Increased peace always a good thing.

My friend Dylan and I went to lunch and it was really fun. We ate on the tailgate of his truck and had some good conversations.
It made me happy for an hour and was fun.

I feel grateful for my friends recently. I'm taking more time out of my day to talk to them so they won't feel like I'm ignoring them. Lol. Just kidding, I'm really thankful for them because they help keep me entertained and not down in the dumps.

We had a presentation at work and afterwards were given gifts with our company branding and then an amazing grazing table and drinks to celebrate.
It made me feel valued and special.

Mom called to make sure I had enough toilet paper and sanitizing wipes, because some were for sale at the store
This made me feel taken care of, on my mom's mind, and helped me be thankful that I am prepared for the new wave of the pandemic

Watching two new episodes of The Simpsons
I love The Simpsons! It’s so funny and witty and exactly inline with my views. It makes me feel good. Plus, it’s been on so long and I feel the quality is still mostly there.

I'm very grateful for my girlfriend because she is just my favorite person in the world. Yesterday we made oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and it was super fun the whole time. It also reminded me that whenever we're together we have a great time doing whatever we're doing. Also the cookies were really good and she provided half of the ingredients so I'm thankful for that too. She is a great person full of laughs and I'm reminded of how lucky I am every time I'm with her.
This made me happy because I got to eat cookies and be with my girlfriend.

I am grateful for my boyfriend because in the past 7 months that we have been dating, he has always been kind to me and been there for me. I am grateful because he always talks to me when I'm upset. He takes time out of his day to talk with me and play video games with me. It's hard staying happy in a lockdown, but he has kept me happy all this time. Happy 7 moths. :)

My sister-in-law made me a delicious dinner and drove it over to my place.
I felt less lonely, I enjoyed delicious food.

Actually not a coworker, but my boss. I am happy that he allows us to work at home for most of the time -the truth is, he could say that we have to go to the office every day, couldn't he! And I have to go there just once a week.
I feel more safe that I would if I went to the office every day. The risk of getting Covid is much smaller. And it is very important to me with my immune problems. I also can save money I would otherwise have to spend on fuel. I also save time.

I am currently reading the book Think Small.
I'm learning so much about keeping my tasks as simple as possible and it makes me feel more accomplished.

There is a large collection of leaves on my patio and my dog, Albus, likes to laying in them and play in them. It's such simple joy he finds in those leaves. It makes me smile and warms my heart. I am grateful for my furbabies! And fall! And nature!
