Right now, drinking cofee, and saw this journal, an oportunity. Thankfull for that, for some job plans that I've been waiting: finally starting to be a writer offically, with a real book. Thankfull for my mum that supported me few days before with some compliments and good words. Grateful for people who listens to me carrefully and loves me, my friends on a spiritual trip that became life.
It reminded me of presence of God in other people, that needs to be appreciated from me.

The optician who ordered my new glasses was very professional and knowledgeable. She even explained to me what to expect, as I've never worn bifocals before.
I felt reassured that I wasn't the only one resistant to change (or more specifically, growing older!)

I am thankful everyone in my girls' group participated and shared with one another.
It made the group more fun and it felt comfortable with everyone in group.

My husband made me my usual cup of morning coffee even though he's not feeling well today.
I felt loved and cared for, AND I got to have a delicious cup of coffee. :-)

I had a rough past weekend and left my phone in an uber. Although the driver refused to give it back to me, my mom understood and got me a new one.
She helped me move past my mistake, and focus on the future.

I saw wildlife on my commute this morning.
It reminded me that my choice to move away from the city was the right one. I am grateful to be closer to nature!

I'm so lucky to have great and reliable transportation into work every day.
I do not have to worry and stress about finding a way to get to work in the morning.

At the door to the Park Theatre in Finsbury Park, I was greeted warmly and sympathetically by a volunteer.
I felt welcome, acknowledged and free to explore a new venue.

I was feeling ill, not sure what was happening & my HMO offers appts via the phone so I was able to talk to my Dr. the same day to discuss my situation. This resulted in a plan for my care.
I felt less afraid about my situation, more at ease & was reminded how fortunate I am to have good, accessible health care.

I am grateful for living in this country. It is such a privilege to be living in the USA. I appreciate the road traffic sense, how safe it is for the pedestrians and the bikers. I appreciate the side walks. I am also thankful for the free libraries.
I am thankful for the time I have lived here. Its awesome.

I actually wrote an essay that managed to reflect my ideas on an assigned subject at university.
I am sensing the capacity to move more freely within my self. Deep inner self 'wrote' the essay from the material the 'student' had provided. Grateful that the inner self is showing up and participating in this project of finding 'the words to say it'.

I have a good job!
I was reminded of how others who work as hard or even harder at their jobs do not have such great benefits offered in their place of employment.

My parents take care of my 7 month old son while I'm at work. My aunt, who lives with them, always texts me and gives me little updates about him.
Today, I really missed MJ (my son) and it was nice to hear what and how he's doing. If I get updates from her, I feel happy and elated that he's doing ok while I'm gone.
