I'm grateful that my partner and I can talk things out, even really hard things, and feel like we're making progress. We had a bad fight last night and things got pretty explosive, but I feel like we're a bit more grounded now. We talked about how we felt, and how both of us messed up, and steps we're going to take to try to make things a little better, and even the benefits of having that fight (getting things out of our systems, release, etc.).
It gave me relief, and hope that our relationship will make it, that we can be honest with each other, and that my partner will get relief from some of his pain.

My son is healthy, both of them but the oldest one was quite ill. I could clean my house and prepare everything I must do today, and my boys helped me a lot with that! Now I am free to play with them and enjoy the rest of the day.
It reminded me there is enough time to do things at home and enjoy life. And that do things at home can be fun for kids if we make it fun. It takes more time, but i don´t yell and they don´t see me as the one that is always busy with things at home without looking and playing with them.

My coworker drove me out about two hours to an event venue today on her day off so she could help us do a test run for an event in November.
It made it much easier to get to the location as I otherwise would have needed to get really creative. It also allowed me to have the opportunity to talk with her to hear about her thoughts and experiences on various things.

It is a privilege to work with students
I am working one-on-one with a student and mindfulness it is wonderful to look into his eyes after each session.

The relaxed pace & activities of my day, especially my walk in the afternoon when the morning fog disappeared, the sun broke out and the air warmed up enough to shed my jacket from earlier in the day.
I realized, connected with the idea & feeling of, not being in a hurry or packing my day with activities to feel like I'm living a full life. Slowing down & appreciating my choices in the moment is so much more pleasurable & life-affirming. I felt satisfied and grateful for this awareness.

The stuio assistant helped me set up memes for the studio teachers.
It took work off my plate and helped reduce my anxiety.

My son having another birthday! Family & good health are taken for granted too often, but I stop to be thankful for both today.

My friend organized an event this weekend so our group could spend some quality time together.
Spending quality time with friends reminds me how blessed I am and how much I am loved! And I got some exercise to boot!

Having a tasty dinner & wide-ranging conversation with my daughter-in-law & grandkids.
Reminded me of what a wonderful, generous, talented & funny family I have; they enrich my life, challenge my perceptions, make me laugh (at myself) and open me to new experiences. WOW!

To my brother-in-law, who was a pleasure to work with as we replaced the water tank. Although it was quite hard work, we all felt really good at the end that we had achieved the goal.

I wrote about some ongoing difficulties in my diary. Then I decided to rewrite my entry as questions and what I desired, rather than what I didn't want.
A short time later, extremely helpful articles appeared one after another on social media. I'm grateful for being in the right mindset to receive advice.

I am so thankful to my mom. If there is any 1 who deserves unconditional love from me, it is her. She remembers stuff I need and gets them to me. She has suffered a great deal in life, but that doesn't stop her from being kind and loving. She is trying to learn English and today, I pledge that I will help her learn the language.
If it wasn't for my mom's love and care, I don't know what I would have become.

No one thing on particular. But I am grateful for the fact that even though she is 26, she is always worried about us, and she always makes sure that everything is good with her and us. She is such a wonderful daughter and was naturally born with gratitude. I feel grateful because she is doing so well in her career, and she spends a large part of her salary on us, and on fixing up our house. She really goes out of her way for us, and she also watches over our maid and tries to manage things so that we are not spending money unnecessarily. She's like a parent to her parents, and her love is so deeply felt all the time. I am grateful to her for loving us, and grateful to God that He gave her to us.
1. She cleaned up my bedroom and threw away a lot of useless stuff that I keep hanging onto. 2. She asked the maid to write down what is needed for the kitchen, then together we went to the supermarket. She spent her own money for everything on the maid's list, and she also bought ingredients because she wanted to cook for us that night. 3. She got us off our butts and had us call a handyman to fix the roof on the part of the house where the maid cooks. We rarely go there, so we didn't know it leaks when it rains. We also fixed the roof of the maid's house, and Kat got a pesticide guy to do our whole house, and it actually feels very good to have no cockroaches getting into the dog's food.

My financial resources that easily allow me to pursue my interests and buy a new sweater for the colder months ahead.
It wasn't always this way, being financially stable & each time I buy something I like or want, go on a trip, take a class, donate & share I feel such gratitude & appreciation for this resource.

I have been struggling with singing lessons and not progressing the way I had hoped. This reminded me of many times in my past when I would try something and then quickly give up.
I'm grateful that this experience is forcing me to confront past fears and learn how to overcome them.

I’m truly greatful to have my mom around me and support me all the time, no matter good or bad. We share everything together and she is one of my best friend. I can totally open with her at any time. I tell her everyday mom I love you I love you mom. Sometimes she feels annoying but that’s ok. If you love someone tell that person I love you I love you rather than too late to say cause you never know. Life is too short. Be greatful, happy and heathy. That’s all the matters.

My friend listened to me share a dream about my mother who died recently and allowed me to explore it, tears and all.
It helped me release tension and sadness I have been holding onto around my mother's death

Mon épouse m'a remercié pour avoir classé et replié les chaussettes de la famille.
Cela m'a fait plaisir de contribuer ainsi aux tâches familiales et j'ai été content qu'elle l'ait remarqué. Sans compter qu'on perd vite une chaussette ou on les mélange parfois et j'ai été bien attentif à ce que ça n'arrive pas.

Les participants à la réunion de l'ACI m'ont bien remercié pour mon animation concernant les chemins du futur au sujet des technologies et de la science. Ils ont trouvé que la construction de mon animation les amener à mieux comprendre ce sujet et les implications de certaines questions.
Cela m'a fait du bien de me sentir reconnu dans ce que j'ai essayé de faire pour les amener à réfléchir et se former sur ces sujets. J'ai été heureux d'avoir pu leur être utile.

J'ai remercié les participants à notre réunion ACI que j'ai animée pour leur participation.
Grâce à celle-ci, nous avons pu réfléchir ensemble aux progrès techniques et scientifiques observables dans notre monde actuel et nous avons pu mieux appréhender ce qu'il était possible de faire dans le futur par rapport à ceux-ci, cela en collaboration avec les générations futures.

Une collègue m'a bien remercié pour l'avoir tiré d'un mauvais pas avec son imprimante qui n'était plus accessible d'aucun de ses PCs.
Cela m'a fait plaisir qu'elle ait pu voir que je voulais l'aider et que j'ai réussi à le faire en prenant même sur mon temps de midi pour parvenir au résultat espéré. Elle était soulagée de pouvoir imprimer à nouveau dans son groupe et cela m'a fait plaisir d'avoir pu être utile dans un domaine qui n'est pas ma fonction de base au départ.

J'ai remercié mon épouse pour m'avoir acheté du sirop pour la toux.
Elle prend soin de moi et grâce à elle, je peux soigner mon mal de gorge, mieux dormir la nuit et être plus performant au travail.

I had to return something at a store downtown and the traffic was bad and parking was awful and there was construction everywhere. By the time I got into the store, I was really frazzled. The store employee was super friendly and the customer service was outstanding and it made it all worth it.
My mood shifted for the better and I was able to accomplish my goal.
